Hey guys

When I play any type of video file (avi, mpg, wmv etc), it plays for about 5secs, I get the BSOD, and my computer restarts. I have been into the Event Viewer, and looked at the log, and it gives me this:

Event ID: 1003
Description: Error code 1000000a, parameter1 00000016, parameter2 0000001c, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 80502392.

I have had this problem before, and the only way I was able to fix it was to reformat. I have also tried to reinstall my video card driver, but the problem persists.

I am running Windows XP Pro SP2
CPU: C2D E4500 2.20GHz

Please help guys. I'm getting tired of reformatting every 2 months!!

Sounds like your HDD has bad sectors.
Or your RAM has a bad block.

I have 2 internal hard drives where the videos are stored... 9 times out of 10, playing a video off either drive will restart my PC.
Are there any tests I can do to check memory and hard disks?

And thanks for the quick reply too

Download Ultimate Boot Disk - has tests to check everything on your PC.
Ive got it on a USB stick so I can throw it onto any PC that supports booting from USB.

Hey guys, I did some more reseach and I found that all I needed to do was uninstall the ASUS enhanced video drivers! A few clicks of the mouse and a restart and everything was back working sweet as! Thanks to all of you that helped!
