Windows Media Player Problem?


OSNN Junior Addict

Everytime I try to play a WMV file with Windows Media Player (Ver 11 or earlier) it causes my system to crash and reboot.

- Windows XP Pro
- ASUS EN8600 GT Video Card
- Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreame Audio
- 2G RAM

I've downloaded all the updates Microsoft will give me. Reinstalled Windows Media Player 11. Updated drivers for sound, video and MB Bios. Reinstalled DirectX. I've run spyware/virus scans. Everything seems to be good.

I just built this system back in December and it has been doing this for about the past month.

Any suggestions as to what could be going on?


Additional info:

I installed Winamp and I still got the blue screen of death and immediate reboot trying to play a WMV file in Winamp.

Looks like MPG files cause the crash too.

What the heck is going on?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
