I have a strange problem that has been going on about a week. Whenever I play music with my windows media player or any media player for that matter, it seems to lock up my graphics. The windows and desktop icons get blurred and have suiggly lines. I have to restart the computer to get it working again. I uninstalled windows media player 11 and reinstalled it. Didn't help. Then i tried to update my graphics card drivers and that didn't help either. Could it be that my graphics card is getting old? It's NVIDIA fx 5200, not the best i know, maybe replacing it would solve the problem? I have a decent processor and a gig of memory, so I don't think thats it. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated.
