Hi guys I hope someone can help me sort out this HCPC as it's driving me nuts. Since being built I've not had a crash free period with it. I was hoping that when I got rid of WinMe as advised, I would have a stable machine, but no such luck. I will not percevere for much longer even though the pictures great. For instance; last night it crashed about 6 times. I was sort of warming it up with a concert video before watching a film. After crashing like mad for about half hour I then watched the film through without any problems. If I can't get it sorted out I will get a prog scan DVD player and suffer the possible loss in picture quality, but obviously I'd rather not take that backward step. Main components in the HCPC are: Abit KT133A-raid 266Mhz motherboard 1.1Ghz *266* AMD Athlon CPU Micron 256MB PC133 SDRAM 10.5Gb XLStor HDD 5400 ATI Radeon 32MB DDR VE M-Audio Audiophile 2496 PowerDVD 4 Windows XP Pro OS Pioneer DVD Rom We have installed all latest drivers and followed all recommended set-up procedures, all to no avail. So, if anyone has any ideas I'd be pleased to hear from them. Perhaps someone can see an incompatability problem that I'm not aware of. All the best Terry By the way, it's used in conjuction with a Barco DG 808s.
