Question whole fedora 10 crashes (and reboots) on playing videos in full screen mode

Hi all, I am facing a strange problem since few days.

My system Immediately crashes and reboots automatically whenever a video currently being played in minimal mode is switched to full screen mode "IN Any Media Player".
I have googled but did not find anything relevant.
Here are the specs :
Motherboard - intel gcnl-945
cpu - intel core2duo 2.0 GHz
monitor - samsung syncmaster 740N (17 inch lcd)
No externel video card
OS - fedora10
kernel -
Window manager - compiz
Please ask me if any other info is needed.

Easy Way: Upgrade distro (F10 is not supported)

If you want to debug the problem then run the video player in debug mode and submit crash report. (i.e strace)

Anyway post interesting info from /var/log/X...log
