    I have a core i7 960
    Nvidia Gtx 580
    6gb ram
    gigabyte x58a-ud3r
  3. Hmm.It's definitely not hardware related.Have you tried running the movie(the player) in windowed mode?

    Yes i have, if it helps, 1 monitor is a 1920x1080 42" full hd tv, and the other is a 1440x900 montiror what is 18" i think
  5. Have you tried different video player like VLC? Also did you try running your games in window mode, while you have video running?
