For some reason, whenever I attempt to play a video file (both via the internet and DVD), my computer locks up and I have to restart it. I have new video drivers, and all of the latest XP patches and player software. Before I reformatted my computer, the video worked fine.

I've tried downloading codec packs and DiVX players with no successful results.

I'm running: Windows XP Home, with an ASUS motherboard. Nvidia fx 6600 (direct x 9 c), 1 GB DDR pc3200, 120 GB Hardrive.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

I got it to work by doing this: try installing this codec pack: [K-Lite Codec Pack] here make sure to move any other codecs you have before installing this. the installer should point out which codecs you all ready have anyways.
It worked, thanks anyways
