Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Can't play divx or xvid media

\015 Hi All\015\012I got eMachines laptop D620 \015\012It got Athlon proc at 1.6Ghz with 1Gb of ram and there is ATI x1200 graphic card inside. I removed pre-installed Vista and installed Win XP sp3 (I have MSDN licence). Everything works smoothly except video - I can't watch any movied in Divx or Xvid - last one don't start to show output and with Divx there is a gap between video and sound and video is slowed down.\015\012I tried different players including VLC, Divx player, media player classic and Subedit - all behave the same.\015\012I installed latest drivers for graphic card and re-installed directx and codecs as well - no joy.\015\012As far I remember under Vista it was working fine (I'm not my primary pc to use on daily bases).\015\012\015\012Any one have any idea what to do ????\015\012\015\012Tom\015
