Hi - You didn't say if you were running Windows or not. If you are I have to assume it would be Windows XP or even earlier with your PC being a PIII. I would reinstall VLC and if you've done that I would then try various other players like Classic Media Player. I would also have a decent Codec pack like K-Lite installed.
Not knowing how fast your P3 CPU is, with an older 2X AGP video card you have to consider the real possibility that your system simply doesn't have the power to run any high bit rate video files such as HD or H.264 or maybe even high bit rate flash video. You might need a motherboard/CPU/Video Card upgrade to run the video you want to see. That or run smaller, slower video files.
First check if the monitor is functional by removing the monitor cable connected to the CPU, once disconnected you should see a onscreen display on the monitor (Keep the power cable intact).
Second check if the CPU is working (not stuck / hung) if you hear the windows logging on sound, then your CPU is fine. If you do not have sound enabled during startup or no speakers then once the system is on give it some time to load windows and then keep tapping the Caps lock or the num lock key, if the lights respond / glow on and off when you press the keys then the CPU is working.
Third check if the CPU has two display ports (in case if you have a onboard VGA and a seperate video card) disconnect it from one port and insert it in another port and restart the computer and see it it works. If you do not have two video ports then skip this step.
Fourth - Restart the computer and keep tapping F8 Key while restarting, in the windows advanced menu choose enable VGA mode or Low resolution video mode (based on XP or Vista/Win 7 the menu changes), if you can see that menu then the issue is with the display settings only. Once in VGA mode or low resolution mode reduce the video resolution settings and restart the computer.
Please revert if you need further assistance, or clarification.

I think Windows is currupted You need to repair or re install operating system using Windows CD. try to repair using Windows CD
otherwise reformat the c drive and install the operating system.
It deffinately solves u r problem
Did the computer work normally after getting it back from the repair technician? Although there are other causes, the symptom that you state (stops at stage of starting Windows setup) may indicate a memory problem. Download memtest86 and run it from boot.
Also. you may have conflicts betwen the cpu and memory. If you set the system switch on the motherboard to 133MHz, you should check your BIOS (under Hardware Monitor and misc.setup) to see if the CPU Host Clock is set to 133MHz. Also, set the CK_RATIO dip on the motherboard to "auto".
Another thing to check in BIOS is the interupt mode...set it to APIC. The PIC setting will hang on XP. Don't forget to save changes on exit.
Your BIOS may be corrupted. When in BIOS, check to see if you are running main or backup. If it's running backup, use the AUTO RECOVERY feature to restore the main BIOS.
Your problem might be solved by just re-setting the BIOS by selecting "LOAD optimized defaults" on the main page.
There may be other solutions, but try these first. Please don't rate this post until we explore other possiblities.
Hi David, The Asus MB can use either the “onboard”, (Built into the MB) - VGA 3D controller, SiS 651 chipset. Or the AGP 4x slot. If you are referring to the AGP 4x slot, I'll need to know the model & manufacture of the AGP 4x card. (Windows XP is better served to provide you an update (If any), through windows update service. As to weather iTunes is causing the *.mov video file to playback un-smooth, suggest you open with windows media player. See if windows plays the file any better. (If not I'd say the problem is with the file & not the player). (Just the way it was recorded). If you haven't installed all of windows XP updates, suggest you do so. This will include windows media player 11. When updating windows XP look to the left of the site. There you'll see "Hardware & software updates". Windows update service is not dumb, once you click on "Express", windows should show you any updates you may need for other devices connected to your PC. Including your 4x AGP card. (I doubt your AGP card is causing the problem). Did or does the Sony camera play-back the *.mov file smoothly?
Overheating problem Remove case side and clean all fans remove fan from heat sink usually 4 screws or little clips Do NOT remove heatsink stuck on with heat paste clean vanes in heat sink replace fan use stiff brush and vacuum cleaner to clean outside of power supply vacuum out case include all vent holes reboot computer should work ok replace case side
check bios setup (pres del or f10 at startup) for cpu speed if speed is mentioned less than actual then change to the right value. if cpu speed is ok in bios then speed info might have changed from registry. my computer>hkey_local_machine>hardware>description>system>central processor>hightlight o folder>on the right pane select processor name status> change this to original value.
