My laptop of several years is locking up whenever I try to play a video through Microsoft Media Player or attempt to use my Slingbox. This problem developed out of nowhere and now I am not sure what to do about it. The Microsoft Media Player is up to date and I have uninstalled Slingbox, but the problem persists. Any thoughts on (a) how to fix it or (b) how to disagnose the problem more accurately would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
