  1. I have just reinstalled XP on my pc after formatting due to errors i could not resolve.I am now having trouble with the graphics when i try to play a dvd in windows mediaplayer the top half of the screen plays ok and the bottom half displays different coloured stripes then the machine locks i have to shut it down to get out of this problem.The mobo is a MSI 6734 with built in graphics it has an AMD Athlon xp 2000mhz processor 512mb ram i have installed the k-lite codec pack i have been on the MSI website and used the live update then installed the graphics driver from their but I still seem to be having problems I seem to think i have the wrong graphics driver installed.Can anybody please help.
    Many Thanks
    Bernie

    Install the drivers.

    XP only installs Generic till you update with the motherboard cd or
    go to the website For them.Read you MBD cd for a drivers folder.
    Their might be other critical installs to do.I hope you have one.:)
    Also read the manual(S) i hope you have.
    Right click desktop/setting to set video size etc.
