Did you upload at OCA, Did you send a problem report to MS, Have you thought
what codecs you have installed as other products. Did you look Help -
About - Technical Infomation in Media Player.
Did you look up the error message in the DDK (Device Driver Kit - I gave
you a nearby link). I don't have DDK installed else I'd look it up.
Did you try Verifier (type it in Start Run). This is strict error checking
for drivers (so drivers are slow). However it may catch errors before they
are otherwise caught and give you a module name.
If not, try it and if it blue screens (with verifier ON) create a minidump
file and send it to me. I have an MS program that can analyse some problems.
Note: Verifier catches problems and BLUE SCREENS. Therefore drivers which
are faulty, but you haven't run across the fault yet, may blue screen
straight away preventing boot. Therefore review how to boot your computer
with last known good configuration (which will disable Verifier).
Have you made sure your video, audio drivers are up to date, and if they are
can you try an older versions. What about these toys. Do they have drivers?
Did they install software?
What had you installed, updated just prior to this occuring. Review Event
logs, Windows Update logs, Problem Reports and Solutions in Control Panel
(get the time of first crash).
But what crap codecs have you installed. Sony's? Nero? WinDVD? Power DVD? TV
