    Hello.
    I realize this has been discussed ad nauseum but I cannot stop my hp nx6110 laptop from shooting up to 100% cpu usage while playing dvds or watching mpeg and avi files from the drive. I have had it since June 2005 and for 7 months it worked withno problems. This has started within the last month and I don't remember making any major changes to the system.
    The drive burns, reads files, copies just fine but after 20 minutes of normal playback, the cpu shoots to 100%, the video and sound go choppy and it stays that way until I close the application. This happens with all dvds and video files played from cds with mediaplayer, interdvd and bs player. As far as I can tell, it still plays audio cds just fine.

    Here is what I have done so far:
    1) A full system restore (was meaning to do one anyway before problem arose). This didn't change the problem at all.

    2) After the restore, installed firefox, acrobat reader, divx, xvid, avg free, ad aware, bs player, hp photo and printing software, limewire, open office 2.0 and speed fan (which I can't really use, it seems - no fans are listed to control).

    3) Installed registry mechanic and used it to fix 71 problems just two days after the restore. Installed ad-aware and it found nothing important.

    4) Downloaded ffdshow. No change.

    5) Installed service pack 2, and some chipset drivers from hp.com. No change.

    6) I have checked the DMA setting in IDE properties and it is selected. It always was.

    7) Worried that it was a virus and avg wasn't picking it up, I did an online scan with www.bitdefender.com and it found nothing.

    I can't find anything else. Both ad-aware and registry mechanic find nothing now and i am more or less sure it isn't a virus given the recent restore and the extensive scan.

    My hijack this log is at the bottom, hopefully someone can spot something. What I really find odd about this is that the problem stuck around after the full restore.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
