New system...media stuff locks up!!!
I just got my system hooked up and everything installed just fine...no problems at all.
Abit KT7 100
Duron 700 (not oc)
128 generic PC100
All in Wonder Radeon 32MB
Monster Sound MX300
Diamond 56K Voice Modem
45GB Western Digital ata/66
Prime Peripheral 8x DVD/32x CD
I have used the ATI DVD player with hardware decoding but it freezes much quicker. I used WinDVD 2000 and that plays for a few minutes then freezes. WTF!!!
Observation: I tried two DVDs. Terminator one (old DVD and Matrix which is newer type), The Terminator plays longer than the Matrix. I am talking about 5 minutes of play time and less. Also, media player locksup frequently, within seconds of program startup. I tried mp3 and it freezes computer.
What the hell is going on? Do I have some settings wrong? DMA is enabled in hard drive and DVD. I had a BP6 with Celeron 466 oc to 582 and DVDs played flawlessly in that machine. I need help!!!
