The sig rig is acting up a lot lately. I can't figure out what's wrong with it so I hope you guys/gals can help.

The problem I have is if I'm watching a movie lately (Family Guy series / The Rock) it'll freeze up completely and I'll get a high pitched beep/whine out of the speakers. I reboot and it's fine for another 20-50 minutes. I don't think the video card or anything is overheating (it's at ~50C). I DO have older drivers installed for this card, version 84.21, because if I install any 9x.xx drivers some DVD's / videos show up completely green. The audio comes through fine but the video is just green. That problem goes away if I install any 8x.xx series drivers.

So I can't update drivers and hope this goes away. This is a new problem only a few days old. So if anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it!

Like NuclearCrap said, Codecs would be my first guess, you could try the Nvidia ones, I have been using them and they seem decent.

How do I uninstall the codecs? I've used many different players (Windows Media Player, JetAudio, Power DVD).

Klite Codec Pack + the new beta drivers have fixed it for me!
