Is your version compatible with your OS? some are not suitable for XP for example.

It is possible a driver conflict, like NERO dvd driver and power dvd driver. try removing NERO then Copy Power DVD to Hard Drive, Restart in Safe Mode and run the Power DVD setup again and restart and try

PS it may be a good idea to also remove Power DVD and any files or Folders you can find before reload

around 70 - 75Hz in the display/advanced section
Or if this doesn't work, Reinstall DirectX and try reinstall of the Chipset drivers.

There is a PowerDVD patch on the Cyberlink website for each version; setting a monitor's refresh rate below 85MHz could mean suffering screen flicker for many people.
