    I removed it cz I wanted to get a new one , more powerfull ,, and now im working on my internal video card - Intel Q965/Q963 Express Chipset family
    Intel Gma3000 . 256 Mb
    the problem is , once I started to use the internal one ,, once I play Avi files ( 45 ) minutes , the computer freezes for couple minutes ! tried multiple video players and the same problem

    What program are you using to display videos?
    Audio Video Interleaved (also Audio Video Interleave), known by its initials AVI, is a multimedia container format introduced by Microsoft in November 1992 as part of its Video for Windows technology.

    JC713 I downloaded that driver , its still the same , And about the cpu,, yes I do gaming and I will change it to core 2 due ,, thats why I needed to replace the video card too . but once I removed it and used the internal one , the problem showed up !
    jobeard I tried it on windows media player , media classic player AND BS player :(

    A Core 2 Duo wont improve it much. I would get something like an AMD FX 4100. Did you try VLC?

    Yeah, I know it wont fit, but I am saying that you may wanna just buy a new modern CPU instead of upgrading what you already have.
