Get a better PSU, it requires 300w but thats not taking into account what your other components are eating up.

Yeah .. a better "well-known" brand PSU is what you need.

power supplies are going down in price. you need to get a beefier one. also, get a good name brand power supply. it pays off in the long run. no-name power supplies arent usually up the specs they say they are and usually die prematurely. (thats what she said :naughty: sorry...)

Sounds like you need to grab the correct codecs.

Is it a divx vid? If someone has a link to the k-lite pack it's pretty good. It should have all the codecs you will ever need.

I googled up this link. Hope it is legit. http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_Lite_Codec_Pack.htm

To solve this issue with your video not showing first you should reinstall your motherboard chipset drivers. These are very important especially with the interaction of an AGP card. If you still have problems then head over to www.nvidia.com and in their driver archive switch to the 84.21 driver. Also in regards to your power issue, try using a different power connector to the back of the video card and make sure its not jumpered off of another device.

in the worst case, he could have screwed up directdraw of active movie components. thats a bit harder to fix
