Hi i have an HP pavilion zv6000 running windows xp. Whenever i try to watch movies using gom player or any other player my computer becomes extremely slow with 100% of system resources being used or just shuts down. I don't have alot of programs installed and have avg antivirus. I recently reformatted my computer before then i never had this problem. any help would be appreciated. Thanks

After you formatted did you install the Video drivers and any other drivers that came with the PC

What process is using all the CPU? Have you installed any codecs? Is it with a particular file-type (like avi's)?
