Default Video files cause comp to reset

Im not sure at what point my computer started to do this, but recently if I try to open any video files at all (ogm, avi, mkv, etc.) my computer resets immediatly without the Blue screen of death. I uninstalled all of my video codecs and reinstalled different ones, but the result is the same. This also includes any video streaming from a website. At this point I am ready to reinstall windows, but Im hoping someone knows about this issue so I can avoid having to format.

I set my computer up to write a log of the error message, but will have to try getting it to work (wasnt working earlier).

well this is a tough one..
I'd try reinstalling the vid card drivers. And remember to delete the old ones before installing the new ones.

Thanks guys, it worked. It seems that the drivers I was using for my x850 became corrupt, as I ran some tests before I uninstalled them. Apparently a recent game I installed must have screwed with my anti-aliasing.

i had a similar problem
whenever i would plug in my digital camera to upload some pics
i always had to make sure to turn the cam ON when its already plugged in
if not and i plug it in OFF and switch it on my comp would reset in a flash of an eye
so i just formatted and it works fine lol
