    ime moves, whether saved onQuickTime causes reboot (XP Pro SP1)

    A newly discovered problem- when I attempt to play QuickTime movies, whether saved on my hard drive, stored on CD, or the sample files included with QT, the computer reboots. I have the latest version of QT (6.5). Any suggestions? As far as I know, nothing has changed on the computer to explain this recent problem.
    Many thanks, as always
    Dianne

    Does anything show up in the Event Log? (- Control Panel > Admin Tools >)

    If it is not something you are doing regularly, run a full disk scan (Chkdsk), and/or try an uninstall/re-install of QT.

    Great advice, thank you. Nothing in the event log, an uninstall/re-install didn't help, but chkdsk fixed it, even though there were no obvious errors (but who can read that fast!)

    Glad you got it. For future reference, it sounds like you ran chkdsk at the Run command. Instead, Run, CMD to open a command window, then execute CHKDSK /f or however you prefer the parameters. The command window will keep the results on the screen for you to read, until you type EXIT.
