I posted a while back about the above system, I think I have found the trade off
I use Windows mediaplayer, I know many of you hate it but it works for me and how I use it - I also have VLC installed been using it for years but it does not work how I work with MP.
Anyway the system was working fine for over 6 months with the CPU as a X2 560 and all 127 of my MP4 videos played fine in MP, but after I unlocked the CPU to the X4 B60 MP crashes on every one of my videos ? this is the only change to the machine.
I played the videos with VLC and it plays them all ok, I also copied the entire video folder from my Intel i5 laptop with AMD 7670M just to make sure the files were not corupted and still MP crashes.
Thing I have done :-
Put the CPU back to X2 560 - no change
Reset the BIOS & pulled the batt - no change
Uninstalled MP & reinstalled - no change
Deleted and rebuilt the video lib - no change
Complete reinstall of Win7 with only Mobo/video driver - no change
HELP !! this is really getting on my wick now.
