    When I play divx or mpg movies my system locks up and I have to cold boot.
    I do have the latest drivers and codecs

    Have amd 800
    256 ram

    I have had horrible results in playing movie files with Media Player. I just hate the program in general.

    For movies, try the playa - at

    Then do a search for a program called nimo codec. It was on the website for a bit. May still be there. Install Divx Playa first then install the nimo codec. Should be able to run movies fine.

    An even better program would be Power DVD.
