Hey,

I've got a problem with pretty much all of my media I guess. Anytime I try and play a video in my browser it freezes and I have to end the process. It doesn't matter, freezes for all formats, mpeg, wma, etc.

All programs that play video also freeze; well, they don't even really open completely before they freeze. Windows Media Player, iTunes, Napster, WinDVD, etc.

I really have no idea what the problem is... help.

Anyone had this problem before?

:thumbsup:

If you download the media, can you play it from your hard drive? What browser do you use? when you attempt to play media from your browser, how far do you get in the process?
I think answers to these questions might help our members isolate the problem.

I use Firefox, but it freezes in IE too. It doesn't get far at all. Nothing plays, just as soon as I see the Quicktime logo, or WMP in the browser it freezes before anything plays.

I can't play anything at all, from the internet, my hard drive, or cds. Just like in the browser, WMP and Quicktime freeze as soon as they open. Napster won't even open completely before it freezes, yet things seem to work in iTunes.
