AVI/MPEG playback crashes my computer - minidumps attached! My computer hangs and after a while reboots when attempting to play video files with any player. I'm using the new nVidia 81.94 drivers. The same problem occurs with all drivers except 71.89. What can I do? Disabling hardware acceleration from dxdiag helps, but then the videos get messed up. System specs: AMD Athlon 2600+ Barton (no oc) 1Gb DDR 333MHz Kingston Valueram (tested ok) Club3D GeForce 6600GT (no oc) Win XP SP2 (up to date) All mobo drivers are also up to date. EDIT: Computer also hangs if I just click on a AVI/MPEG file. WTF? I found a couple of articles about clicking on AVI files causing 100% cpu usage and applied the fixes presented at tweakxp.com but it doesnt help. And because video playback works with 71.89 drivers I'm betting this is an nVidia issue. I also disabled AGP FastWrite from bios and Write combing from nvidia settings. These changes havent solved the problem either.
