Not sure where to post this question, so here goes.
I recently purchased a Geforce 6800xt and after installing it i can play all of my games fine
the problem is whenever i try to play any type of movie file that opens in windows media player / windows media player classic / winamp / quicktime / whatever the system slows down extremely fast (until everything locks up) and then i have to reboot
i didnt have this problem with my old geforce ti 4600 which is why im guessing that the new card is the problem
the only thing that is worrying me is on the website i bought the card and the box itself says the card requires a 400w or 500w psu.
another change made since switching video cards was updating to the latest video drivers, maybe thats the problem?
my specs are
athlon 3000 barton
1gb of pc3200 something ram
western digital 80 gig harddrive
im posting this off the top of my head and when i get home from work i can give more information in more detail if needed
any idea what the problem could be? if its even related to the video card?
1. Uninstall the NVIDIA drivers completely
2. Uninstall codes that you have (divx4, acc, mpeg4 etc)
3. After rebooting and making sure that everything is removed, Install the NVIDIA drivers again
4. Try there if not...
1) Your PSU might be a problem, does your card need energy from PSU?
Also, check videocard temperatures, if they are too high, that might be causing the card to just freeze
