When i am watching a video on my computer, 75 percent of the time my computer will freeze up. I have windows xp pro, with pentium 4 2.2ghz and 512 ram. Im not sure what kind or how big my video card is, if it is even that. Its very frusturating when it does this. Would i need more memory or a stronger video card to help correct this problem or any other ideas? Thanks.

What program are you using to view the video? Also do you know if your video card is built into the motherboard? Most these days are and buying a video card with 128 MB Ram will take the load off the system Ram and make the video play better.

What is the make and model of your computer and how big is your hard drive and how much free space is there?

If you can tell us about as much of your computer as possible that might help also?
