Hi there, I recently updated my PC and I am having a problem with video files. DVDs do not play when opened up in Windows Media Player (version 11), and Power DVD. The programs open and then crash to the desktop. AVI movie files in Media Player play with sound only, no picture, and they cause Power DVD and Quicktime to freeze.

I am using XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600), Intel Dual Core 2160 @ 1.8 Ghz (2 CPUs), 2046Mb RAM, and a GeForce 8600 GT.

Games work absolutely fine, but no video files.
Anyone have any ideas why??

Thankyou..

What and how did you update the computer? Do you mean Windows Update? Did these files play OK before your updates?

I meant that it was a format and new hardware, new install of windows and everything. Nothing from my old system was kept. New PC basically. The latest nVidia drivers are installed.
