Hiya all.

Got a problem never encountered before.

Playing a film using Power DVD Player, film plays fine both sound and picture.
As soon as I switch off the player the computer
locks up, having to do a system reset.

Have reinstalled Windows XP and tried different versions of Power DVD.

Have tried all versions of the Player on my spare computer and they all behave normally.

Any one got any idears please.
