I usually get the subject "Stop" error when trying to play a commercially made DVD movie using Windows Media Player or Intervideo DVD. It also occasionally stops my Opera 6.02 browser as well. These events are mostly random except during the DVD play which crashes pretty regularly. I have resorted to shutting down all running background software. I also keep the O.S. squeeky clean & defragged - which seems to help some what. There is a blue MS Windows error page which suggests that you check for: 1.) Adequate disk space - I have tons of hard drive space. 2.) Driver updates - huh? What drivers? 3.) Video adapters. 4.) Bios updates. 5.) Disable BIOS options including caching or shadowing - none are enabled. Of the 5 items, only 2.) or 3.) may apply. There are no 4.) BIOS updates for mine. Can this issue be tracked down & corrected so it doesn't stop/crash? Or is it an XP thing that you have to live with? Can someone please suggest how to proceed in diagnosing & curing this bug?
