Have you ever heard of a computer repairing itself? Before I tried to open it up, I decided to try Media Center one more time. This time there was a new error code....video decoder not found. I knew I didn't have DVD video player installed anymore, so I installed dvd video & decoder, and voila! Media Center is freaking working! I don't know what happened between the time I tried the previous solutions that didn't work and this time! My computer regenerates! Yippee. Thanks guys for all your help & suggestions. This is definitely the place I'll come with any more computer problems or questions.
