Recently added a new monitor to my setup. Now whenever I play a dvd with windows media, it crashes, sometimes when i switch from full screen. I'm running a dual monitor setup using ati catalyst center. Anyone have any ideas on what's causing this?

P.S. i realize i need to upgrade my vid card ASAP, patiently waiting on the 4870's to drop a little bit more. My 26inch monitor cut into the fund.

System Specs

Westinghouse 26inch LCD
Dell 2005fwp
AMD Phenom II X4 920
4 gig 1066 Ram
Windows Vista 32-bit
HD3300 integrated graphics on a Biostar TA790GX A2+ Mobo

Thanks!

Only thing I can think of is to try another media player (I preferr VLC, as it plays ANYTHING!). The only thing I use Media Player for is music (playlists, and interface to my Zune).
