The bane of my existance was upgrading to WindowsXP SP-2 and we shall
not make that mistake again. The problem is that reinstalling Windows
XP from scratch has resulted in the following problem, now with SP-1
which produces similar bad results.

When I want to launch the TV in the Multimedia Center for most of the
time the first launch works fine. If I close it out and want to open
it again, it's this second launch that crashes the computer. When I
first installed it with MMC 9.1 it would show the splash screen and
then hang for a short bit. Then the screen would go totally dark and
you'd hear static in the background like the antenna was connected to
an empty TV channel. With 9.2 I'm waiting and then the screen looks
like a jumble of little squashed colorful squiggles and then it
eventually reboots. The one time I did get a blue screen of death said
ATI2DVAG got stuck in an infinite loop or something of that nature.
Not sure.

I'm using an Asus mobo A7N8X-E Deluxe (great) 1.5 MB RAM, Win XP SP1,
SATA drives starting up, ATI AIW 9600 as the Video and TV and the
latest BIOS and drivers (none of which helped cure this) and am hoping
someone can get this to work!

Thanks in advance!

I FINALLY found the answer. Do NOT install DirectX 9.0c on your
machine. It will screw everything up with the ATI video card.

Not sure what to say, I had the 9600AIW with 9.0c and SP1.... ran
perfectly, now I'm onto SP2.

It sounds to me like you've got something busted, either your video board or
your motherboard or your RAM. I'm running the same basic setup except with
a 9800 and its giving me no problems at all.

Perhaps if you used a released version of MMC, the most recent of which is
9.02, rather than the beta or pirate or whatever 9.1 and 9.2 that you are
using you would get better results.
