Ok I got my new machine this morning, ran some tests on it to make sure it is working OK.
Is there any sort of screwy thing going on with placing copyrighted DVD's in a RW drive? I ask as I placed one in, set it to run, and the system locks up at the copyright warning. Other DVD's will play, but when I loaded a disk with MP3's on it, I got a black screen but the music was playing and an error message telling me that the monitor does not support this resolution?
I can only assume that windows media player is trying to set the resolution to a spec the monitor will not allow (which is odd as it is a very high res monitor)
I have had it a couple of hours and already am thinking of wiping it and placing my spare copy of XP pro on it.
