Windows XP HELP!

Post by Decible on Sun 11 Jan 2015, 2:11 pm

I'm having a problem with Windows XP locking up and auto restarting. This only occurs when I'm watching movies off the HD or on NetFlix. The system is completely clean of viruses and malware, this is something that has started in the last 4 or 5 weeks. I can't figure it out! If I'm on the internet or doing other work it runs beautifully no problems but as soon as I start to watch a movie, it may run great for an hour and either lock up or restart on its own. I can be on netflix and watch it for 2 hours and no problem and then the next day it may lock up or restart 4-6 times. Im STUMPED :-/

Download BlueScreenView to your desktop.
BlueScreenView
unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe to run the program.
when scanning is done, go to EDIT - Select All
Go to FILE - SAVE Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all of the content, and paste it into your next reply.

As I suspected, the problem is with the video card. Go to the DirectX website and try to update the driver.

Okay I'll give it a go. I just updated the directx driver although I checked and I had the 9.0c driver but I reinstalled incase it got corrupted somehow and I went ahead and updatated the ati graphics card driver as well. See if that cleans it up.

Well, crap....just went to Netflix to try it out. Got about 3 min into the show and it froze. It's not a blue screen freeze though. It's like the picture completely freezes and you can't do anything. The mouse won't move and there is a humming sound that comes through the speakers. And you have to hit the restart button. I'll try again but it appears for the moment it's still doing the same thing.

Does it do that in Safe Mode? Check your Device Manager and see if there are any yellow warning icons.

We won't know until we try. If wifi is turned off, try watching a movie from you hard drive.

So sorry I've been so busy at work I'm just getting back to this. I'm letting a movie play in safe mode now. It's 22 minutes in and it hasn't locked up. I'll let it play a bit longer but if it plays through and now lock up any idea what it could be when not in safe mode?

Safe mode uses less resources. In Normal Mode, something is eating up the resources.
Download Process Explorer: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx
Unzip ProcessExplorer.zip, and double click on procexp.exe to run the program.
Click on View > Select Colunms.
In addition to already pre-selected options, make sure, the Command Line is selected, and press OK.
Go File>Save As, and save the report as Procexp.txt.
Attach the file to your next reply.

Did it play the whole movie in Safe Mode? What happens when you play a movie you have save on your computer in Normal Mode?

Well it played for 45 min and didn't freeze in safe mode. Then I rebooted and watched the whole movie 2hr 25min in normal mode and it didn't freeze. Strange....haven't tried Netflix yet...

That happens when you're streaming a movie. Does it do it when you watch a movie that is already on your computer?

It has only done it once or twice when I'm watching off my HD. Last night while watching Netflix it did it 3 time in like 4 hours but last week it froze 5 times in 20 minutes. Seems to do it once in a blue moon when watching off the HD.

Crap...when I click the download button on that page...I might have (think AVG caught it though) infected my computer. The download button I just noticed takes you too a third party site for zi72.....
