Slows Down when running video

  Adezzz 20:17 19 Apr 2009

Whenever I try to run a video file such as .avi my pc slows right down to a crawl. This happens on whichever media player I use.

I recently installed a new graphic card. An NVidia Geforce 6600 LE. I've installed updated drivers.

Any ideas?

How big are the files you are trying to open?
Worth making sure your codecs are uptodate.

The files are about 800mb. I've run them before no problem. That was before I installed the new card.

It even happens if I put a run a dvd from the drive. I installed new codecs but still the same.
