    computer crashes when playing vids

    ive seen this come up b4 but i couldnt find the thread..

    ive got a via v10000 mobo and im using the video out on it.. when i try and play a video of any type.. it does that memory dump thing and resets the computer.

    in the bios u can select how much memory is elocated to the video. would it help to put more there?

    thanks mick.

    What are you using to play the videos. And do you have the correct codecs installed?
    AMD XP 2600+/512MB RAM/120GB hard drive
    Opus 150W/DVD/GPS/7" Lilliput TS/802.11g/Bluetooth
    Installed.

    i figured something out (i'm having a good day today with figuring bugs out)

    in the advanced display settings.. i turned the hardware acceleration right down.. and it works a treat now..
