Hi! I have been trying to watch videos online and everytime I try to watch one there is no visual but i know its working cuz theres audio. Then always about 1/2 way through, the audio stops and nothing happens. I close internet explorer and it says program is not responding, i click "end now" and the computer freezes. I also downloaded the videos (like from ebaumsworld.com) and tried to play it without internet explorer. Sometimes I can see the video for a minute or so, but then the computer freezes. My brother thought it might be codex (whatever that is) so he did somthing to do with that, but it did not fix the problem. I also uninstalled and reinstalled Windows Media Player, and the problem is still there. Please help!

Welcome to BC. Nice to talk with new members.
How much RAM does your computer have installed?
How size is your hard drive, including used/free space?
What version of Windows Media Player (9 or 10)?
Which service pack do you hace install for XP?

Taking a educated guess I would think you do not have enough RAM or virtural memory. We will be able to tell you more when You can provide us with a little more information.

Except for vitural memory, which you did not list, all you specs look good. Have you used antispyware and antivirus to check for malware?
