    Hi there!

    Could anyone please help?

    I own a MBP LED SR. Specs are:

    2.2Ghz/200GB7200rpmHD/128MB Nvidia 8600M GT/2GB memory/OS 10.5.1
    with every software update.
    I have installed no additional programs yet.

    Problem is, when I listen to iTunes (7.4/5) and turn on the visualizer and open DVD player 5.0 on mute, they will both Freeze with the only recourse being a Hard Restart! I am playing a store bought copy of The Big Lebowski...

    Scrolling through the dock also causes the DVD to glitch.

    This is what I have done to so far:

    Verify and Repair (unnecessary) the disk.
    Log in as a different user.
    Reset the P RAM.
    Remove and Reinsert the RAM.
    Erase and Reinstall Leopard from DVD (w/o any updates, same problem).
    Play different DVDs.
    Tried to decipher the various logs.
    Run a few hardware tests (short gives me an error T:GOD, somethin' somethin'.....Extended test never shows an error).

    Is this too be expected from a $2400 computer?:confused:

    forgot about spaces

    .....also, there is no freeze with the iTunes visualizer on in SPACE 1 while the DVD plays in SPACE 2....
