hey all.
i am having MAJOR problems with my video files on my computer. when ever i try to open one, it slows my computer down to a crawl and makes my screen flash off and on. but i can watch videos on YouTube without any problems, but not from others sites liek Putfile or Ebaums World. i have updated my windows stuff, installed the newest codex, divx, and directx files and my video drivers are up to date. any help would be great. thanx

Are you experiencing these difficulties with Windows Media Player - or another product?

oh heck!!

Hmmm, ATI and on-board graphics ... not a flavour I would like entertain but it should have no problem playing videos

All I can suggest, as ATI do not know what drivers are, never mind write any good ones, is to ensure you have the latest drives for everything.
