My computer seems to freeze up when I play most movies other then mpeg since I have a decoder card for it. Whenever I play some divx movies or any such after a short while my computer will lock up.
The specs of my computer are
AMD 950 tb socketa
Memory 512 mb 32x64 or something that sort pc133
Leadtek geforce 2 mx dual head
Adaptec 29160N scsi controller
Sigma Designs dvd decoder
Creative live value
intel nic 100
yamaha scsi cd-rw 8x8x
toshiba 12x scsi dvd-rom
one ultra 160 western digital HD
2 60 giger 5400 rpm udma 66 maxtor hd's
one 10 giger 5400 rpm udma
one 6 giger 5400 rpm udma
2 12.6 giger 5400 rpm udma 66 raided together
I seem to be having problems transfering from the 2 60 gigers transfering to the 2 12.6 gigers raided together. I'm not certain if this is the problem or not and don't understand why that problem occurs. all 4 of these devices are on the abit kt7-raid raid port the udma 100 slots.
My OS is win2k server, pro, and ME all seems to have the same problems.
I have made sure all my drivers are up to date and still the problem exists.
My WIN2k Server settings are
In system Properties
Performance optimized for applications
virtual memory total paging file size for all drives 255 mb
- 700 mb partitioned from the scsi 18 g hd
My temporary internet directory in my k: drive partition from the raided drive for 800 mb
My computer doesn't freeze unless I play some movies or the computer has been on 2 long or something along those lines. I tried theplaya and windows media player which both seem to crash my computer the only one taht hasn't is real hollywood pluses dvd player which I use to watch mpegs.
I hope someone can help me out this has been bothering me for awhile and I wish to fix this problem THANKS in advance for all those that can help

it's been a while, but I'm pretty sure the culprit is the Maxtor's in Raid configuration. When that MB came out my friend and I built him a new computer and had similar problems. We read that the Maxtor's wouldn't work with the MB so we exchanged them for IBM's, same problem. Ended up not running them in raid and everything is good, especially after we dumped the SBLive!.
There may be patches out now, but he was so fed up with it he decided to let it go.
