    Does anyone know when i play a file avi file in media player 8, i get the blue screen of death. Some times it reboots by itself, but mostly in media player 8. Then when i restart one of my harddrives doesnt show in the BIOS. I have open the box, unplug the HD and plug it back up to see it in the BIOS? Could this be a issue with the bios or the power supply?

    Is this one AVI or all AVI. If only one the file may be corrupted. If all the AVI's do it you have a bad codec or a bad media player install.

    If you have been installing downloadable codecs uninstall them. If not try a uninstall and reinstall media player.

    Do you have a CD burner? If not, check to see if WMP has the Adaptec CD Burner plugin installed. If it does, uninstall it.

    A lot of times, WMP will install this codec even though you don't have a CD burner. This usually results in BSODs while playing CDs or watching movies.
