OS windows XP pro

i know how you feel , I've install various versions of power DVD and every one of the crashed , and that was after a clean install of xp and when the PC was full up to the neck with rubbish.

no matter what i tried to do with it , it would never work , so i gave up and used the msi DVD player i got with my mobo and it works every time

or your Display settings.

Set you Monitor to 75Hz for starters,
update your Graphics drivers then install it.

I had the problem you had with v3 which I fixed using the advice I give above.
Are you getting a horrible screen of mixed colours really messed up and nothing else
