My thoughts, Kaffine & Kplayer bork but vlc works this to me would indicate a 
player problem & not hardware as your box has plenty o' "beef" but saying 
that and taking alan's jaded memory into account :-) this line reg02: 
from /proc/mtrr don't look right to me the size=16MB should be 256MB 
representing physical video ram. ??? Hey dotan you always have the best 
problems and this one's got me also, but on the bright-side vlc is a quality
