Media Center slow


I have a dell 9400 running windows xp media center. For the past couple of days, every time I go through the video library, it slows down to a halt and I have to shut down the machine and restart to get it going again.

I did try to system restore but that didn't work either.

Without Media centre running, everything seems to work fine. I can listen to music and watch videos just fine on Vlc.

Any idea's as to what could be causing this and how I can fix it?

Thank you all.

RE: Media Center slow

do you mean an Inspiron 9400 laptop?

Hard to be sure, but I'd be inclined to suspect its clagged with dust and running hot. VLC player won't put as many demands on the grapics chip as the Media Center software
