    Reformat? I don't even have the disk - just some HP recovery partition (laptop).

    seems I'm not alone. I found this:

    Raising my RAM voltage solved the problem for me.

    update your video drivers.

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.

    It was a joke dude, like how I always used to answer you whenever you had computer problems before. I don't see any RAM voltage option in my laptops where you adjust it. Is there an option in yours?

    Vista is very susceptible to Driver issues...

    Definitely upgrade everything... i'm talking BIOS, DirectX (August/Nov Update), Audio, Video etc...

    I installed new vid card and then got stuck with continuous loop BSOD!! Not good i couldn't get into SafeMode!

    Also, what type of video you watching, ensure your codecs are uptodate.

    The ones that require periodic lubrication when you watch a lot of videos with Windows Media Player.

    I know you were joking - it's getting old though!

    The thread I found about the ram voltage said it was in bios.

    I just got another crash viewing a you tube video.

    All media players crash vista (VLC, media player classic)\


    I'm not sure how to read event log in vista but these errors were under Window logs>Application

    //./root/CIMV2

    I don't know why Nero was mentioned because I was not using it.

    UG, I have the same problem, however I have both Vista and XP on the same machine and both crash when I watch videos. XP however does it less often. I narrowed down the culprit to Nvidia, but in my case I don't know if it is the motherboard (I have a 780i) or the video cards (8800GT x2).
    As far as I know, the 650, 680, 750 and 780 chipsets from Nvidia had lots of problems. I am waiting for prices to go down before I upgrade to a 790 which is much more stable (and DDR3).
    Updating drivers for both (chipset and video) reduced the amount and crashes, and I have been working with almost no crashes for 5 months. The other thing that I realized, is that it crashes when I load more than one video, so for example, if I have a playlist, when after the second video it might crash in the middle of the second, or third. To solve that I use Windows Media Player classic, and I close the software before I open a new file. (WMPC opens really quick)
