PC crashes when I try to burn DVD video

HI there.

My PC crashes when I try to burn DVD video.

Had no problem until recently, and I can burn CD audio.

Have tried system restore and virus checks.

Tried using Nero and Foxit - both result in my PC crashing during the encoding

process: a grey screen appears, with (varied) vertical black stripes and I have

to turn off my computer.

Would really appreciate some advice please - here's the specs:

Windows XP

AVG Free

Zone Alarm



Internet via wireless network using Repeatit marine hotspot booster

Winfast Model K8M890-8237

Physical Memory 447 MB Total, 77 MB Free

CPU Name AMD Sempron 3000+

Video Processor VIA/S3G DeltaChrome IGP

You mention Nero and Foxit, though I am not familiar with Foxit - your problem could be that you have more than one Burner installed. Try un-installing one of them.

OK, then, I'll do that and try some more burning.

Thanks, Technotiger.
