I have a custom built PC, my specs are up-to-date. I'm have an issue with large video files (playing, editing and recording). When opening the videos in Windows Media Player, I randomly get a pop-up Windows message saying Server Execution Failed. The OS is on my 120GB SSD, while the video files are located on a 2TB Seagate HDD. Furthermore, when recording video files (with FRAPS), my computer freezes up randomly after anywhere from a few seconds to minutes into a recording, and seems to be fine after that. I have checked for/updated my drivers
-I'm not sure if this thread is in the correct location.
Thank you in advance for your input.
EDIT: I'm impatient by nature, so I went ahead with a clean install of Windows 7. The Server Execution Failed message seems to have gone away, however I tried a short (15 minute) recording of a video game (Java based) with FRAPS recording software, and I still encounter the annoying freezes. There are no software updates available that I'm aware of, does anyone have any ideas?
