  • 1. Playing a DVD movie locks up my computer
    No matter what player application I use (WMP, RealPlayer, Quicktime, Interactual DVD player, VLC Player)... as soon as the DVD begins to be accessed, the whole desktop locks up. Mouse, keyboard... nothing works and I have to either hit the master reset button or unplug the machine. The crash occurs whether I try to play a movie in my DVD-ROM or DVD R/RW drive. Windows XP Pro SP2 AMD Athlon XP+ 2800 2.07 GHz, 728 MB of Ram ATI Radeon 9550 / X1050 Series I've installed the latest drivers of the video card (7.10) and rolled back to an older version (7.7). Rolling back got rid of a Direct X error, but did nothing for DVD play back. Event Viewer returns this: Event Type: Error Event Source: ati2mtag Event Category: CRT Event ID: 45062 Date: 10/2/2007 Time: 10:33:21 PM User: N/A Computer: RAYCYRXDT Description: CRT invalid display type Data: 0000: 00 00 00 00 01 00 5a 00 ......Z. 0008: 2c 00 00 00 06 b0 00 c0 ,..... 0010: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ........ 0018: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ........ 0020: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ........

  • 2. trouble using downloaded avi clips with Windows Movie Maker!!
    I downloaded some animation clips from They are supposedly in DivX format, but they say .avi on the end. I have managed to make them appear on my Windows Movie Maker after downloading both LimeLine and a DivX player, but my clips play only sound and no picture. I have tried adding other suffixes on the ends like .mlv or .mpeg etc. (when they ask what I want to save them as when I download) None of these formats have video and only a couple have sound. I can't get .wmv or .wm files to even shoe up on my Windows Movie Maker. Thousands of people are making videos and putting them on so I don't see why it's such a complex and mysterious procedure. Someone please help me! I am about to pull my hair out!
  • 3. Sudden Code 39 Error in Device Manager for Digital Camcorder
    I've been connecting and using my Canon ZR65 MC with Firewire successfully for months. Suddenly, when I connected it yesterday, I get a yellow exclamation mark in Device Manager with the following error: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) Firewire devices should not need drivers. I uninstalled/reinstalled the 1394 PCI adapter (rebooting in-between). No Luck. I purchased and installed a new 1304 adapter. Same error message. I installed my 1394 adapter in another system. It sees the camera perfectly using the same cable (and 1394 adapter). So, instinct would be to reinstall/overwrite my OS (WinXP Pro) I have my CD with SP1, but SP2 installed from Auto Update which means I can't overwrite the OS now and fix possibly corrupted files. (Way to go Microsoft!) Any ideas? Thanks for reading this!

    hello, I was wondering if anyone is having trouble with video playback on I used to be able to play these videos, no problem at all, but now when I try to play it, I only receive the audio, but the screen is green at all times. Could you please help me get the video back? I know this isn't truly XP video, but since I have XP, I just thought this is the best place to start. thank you, QD
  • 5. "frozen" video settings
    My question is this. My son (7 years old) complaiined that he couldn't see hit screen very well. I looked and the display was severly out of adjustment. I went into the settings propeeties and the drop down showed the color quality was set at 4 bit display. I tried adjusting it but could not make any changes. I tried to change to a different monitor with no luck. I checked in the hardware manager and there were no problems there with the drivers and display. I did recently install a new hard drive and put windows xop SP2. I am at a loss as to how to resolve this problem. Given my sons young age I can't imagine that he has messed with any settings. Any inifo would be helpful.

4.Best Video card for MCE

Hi, can someone recommend a good video card for a home built MCE that I think 
needs a better TV signal coming out of a Hauppage 150 PVR card 
is a bit "patchy" ad grainy from time to time and I assume ( could be 
wrong???) that this is a function of the Video card ( which is "older"). MY 
regular TV signal going straight into the TV is better than my MCE signal - 
so that makes me think it's teh card......correct, incorrect, card advice 
please - thanks :-)
