Windows 7: WMP12 BSOD on Video Play Back

05 May 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

I think I may have resolved it...

It was the Overclock Profile that I had configured with my MSI Afterburner software, for my Radeon HD 5850 card...

I had been sitting here trying to figure what changes had been made to my Video Card drivers at about the time this problem started. This machine is barely a month old, and I started out with the Catalyst 10.3 Drivers.

In fact, the problem started, while I was still using the Catalyst 10.3 drivers, and I didn't bother installing Catalyst 10.4 until a week after 10.4 was originally released, just a few days ago actually when I first installed 10.4.


I had not made any changes to my Vid Drivers, when this problem started. It just seemed to suddenly start one day, for no apparent reason...

But, then I suddenly realized that, shortly before I first noticed the problem, a few days before that, I started setting up several OC Profiles on my MSI Afterburner. Ever since then, I've had my machine booting to Windows with MSI Afterburner automatically clocking my 5850, up to a 5870's stock settings.

I just now opened Afterburner, and reloaded my default profile.

Now Windows Media Player is working just fine!



If only I can find my Iron Man DVD that seems to have misplaced itself from its case!

Easiest way to play all music? wmp12
Not so urgent, but it's been bugging me for months and finally figured I should remember to ask somebody. I am one of those people that sometimes likes to just put my entire music library on shuffle, wanting to be surprised from the start, or just not caring. This isn't too straightforward to be...
