Whenever i try watching a video with wmp my screen will black out for a second,(almost like changing the channel on a tv) it will do this continually until i stop the video. Sometimes it just restarts my computer and i get the following error code (Error code 1000007f, parameter1 00000008, parameter2 80042000, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000.) This problem is severly annoying, ive tried re-installing windows media player, rolling it back to an older version, ive run multiple virus and spyware scans, im running out of ideas, please help!

My current media player is version 11.
here are my PC specs
Windows XP home
AMD athlon 2400+
512mb Ram
80gb hard drive
Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 grahics card
gigabyte motherboard

Hello actionbastard! and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Have you tried reinstalling the driver for your Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 grahics card?
