System is New Intel PIV 2.6GHZ 800fsb. 1GB RAM on a Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000 Motherboard. NEC ND-1300A DVD R/RW CD-R/RW Drive. Running MS Windows XP Pro.
Every time I load a DVD the system hangs. Hangs frequently when a Data CD is loaded. Have swapped DVD Drive but same happens. When a CD R/RW Drive is installed instead the system performs okay. On the last occasion I tried to run a DVD the system hung as usual but when I restarted everything seemed to function very very slowly. I created a new user and this overcame this problem. Have again tried the DVD under this new profile without success. I seem to remember this started to happen when I loaded Power DVD xp. I have tried to uninstall this program again without success. Even tried logging in as Administrator through Safe Mode again without success. Have loaded WinDVD same happens. Just tried this second DVD R/RW Drive in another PC and is okay.
