Angry wmp causes pc to restart

well, this is quite frankly getting very annoying. every time i close windows media my computer restarts. specs are in sig.

my load temp is 41C, idle is around 29C

i loosened up my ram timings, and gave cpu more voltage, even backed off the fsb from my overclock. so currently im running .15v more than stock on cpu, im running 2.88v on the ram with 3 4 4 8 timings, and backed it off from 2.6 to 2.5ghz.

i never have time to read the bsod, it just restarts immediately

oops, almost forgot, the fsb is at 250 with 10x multi on the cpu, and the ram is running at a CPU/12 ratio.

Not sure it will help but try this.

Right click my comp and go to properties then choose the advanced tab.Click the settings button in startup and recovery, and untick the automatically reboot on system failure box.

ok, i did that, srry havent been on here in a while, testing and ****...long story.

yea i needed to figure out how to read it because it would shiow blue, for about 1/2 a second, and it would restart. so next time it does it i can finally read it.

that progrma has so many bugs, but heres the solution, open WMP from start menu, go to tools options, performance, and move the video acceleration bar down. that should help

but use VLC Media Player, its free, good and better than most Media players u have to pay for. VideoLAN - Free Software and Open Source video streaming solution for every OS!

my guess is the hard drive with bad sectors and your WMP might be installed on it.
try running a Checkdisk and see if anything pops up

my HD is so close to failing anytime now because of bad sectors, i had flatout 2 installed on those bad sectors and it kept on restarting my system each time i would log off the game.
