Re: Computer Guru Needed
I just want to clear up something..
Are you attempting to play the same video file all the time?
- if so, try another video file and see if the same symptoms occur. Then we can eliminate the possibility that it is the video file at fault.
Does the video file work on another computer?
If the problem only started when you visited that particular site, then It sounds like a software problem. It may be that a codec has corrupted or something simple like that. If it's a codec problem, uninstall the programs that are playing up and reinstall them from CD. If it's necessary you can download new codecs and install them too. If that doesn't fix it, it may be that you're O/S could be screwed. In which case you can either completely format and reinstall again, or Win2k has a windows repair option that is run from the install CD.
Since it's only been a month since you've reinstalled, it shouldn't be too difficult to get all the data you need off onto a CD or a flash disk or even another partition (if you're drive is broken up into partitions). Then do a repair from the Win2k CD - not the recovery console from boot.
Dumb question I know... but the virus 'was' removed wasn't it?
Personally, I'd uninstall and reinstall your applications first. If that didn't fix it, I'd run the repair utility. If that didn't fix it, then I would do the full format and reinstall. Then if the problem re-occurs you can safely say that it's not your software. It's just a process of eliminating the possible causes.
Last but not least you're vid card may be stuffed. Have a look in control panel like 1000 suggested and see what settings you're vid card is running.
Hope I helped.
I'll be outa siiiiiggghhhtttt...
When I get my wheels, I won't even wave goodbye!
