    XP always locks up when I play a movie file. I've tried playing every format: .avi .mpg .mpeg .wmv .rp .dvx and it locks up. and it doesn't matter what player I use: quick time, real player, winamp, WMP, beta player and DIVX.

    I'm using xp professional (legit copy) with the service pack (one I think)

    Sounds like a video card problem. You can try turning off the hardware acceleration for the card and play them. If it works, then it's your video card drivers that are at fault

    did you upgrade to XP or was the computer built with/for XP?
