I don't know where to go from here but this is what is happening on my pc. I have a compaq (yeah I know but it was given to me) and it had windows 98 installed on it. As soon as I got it I added 128 megs of RAM, replaced the phillips cd write drive with my Sony write drive, and added a lynksis wireless internet adapter for the cable modem. I also created a start up disk, then reformatted my hard drive, and installed windows 2000 Pro. Everything seems to go alright until I try to play any type of audio or video file in either winamp, media player9, or another generic playbackk system that came with the 2000 application. Everytime i try to play something, within a few seconds, the pc freezes up and I can't do anything except physically shut down and power up. Any ideas as to what could be causing this? I'm lost at this point and have never experienced this before. It only seems to happen when I try to play audio files of any sort. I have tried switching out memory card but that didn't change anything.
Thanks for any advice anyone could give!
