    I'm running a P4 2.53 processor on a Soyo P4X400 Dragon Ultra
    with a 3oo watt power supply - 3 case fans & a TI 4200 Graphic card - 512 mb of 333 DDR Ram.
    I have unsuspected lock up while playing movies { DVD player is a Sony DDU 1621 * I'm using Power DVD sotware } , my VCORE is
    running at 1.49 - the 3.3 volt is at 3.26 - the 12 volt is at 11.84 -
    DDR is at 2.5 & the AGP is at 1.49.
    Durring movie play the cpu is at 44 degrees C. And the chasis temp rises from 37 to 44 degrees C.

    Does anyone think it could be my power supply or the rise in temperature?? If anyone could help me out by giving me your input on this I would appreciate it greatly ;)

    my vote is your powersupply.

    you need AT LEAST a 350W powersupply for your configuration.

    I personally would go to 400W.

    temp in low to mid 40s really isn't all that high.
