    Hi there,

    I'm experiencing the exact same problem as this person above... anyone
    know what's causing this problem and how to fix it? I know for a fact
    that it's strictly a software/driver issue and not related in any way
    to hardware. I happened to purchase 2 identical HP PCs and intially
    both were fine and then after about a week one of them began to
    exhibit this DVD playback problem. I swapped the hard drives and the
    problem followed with the hard drive over to the "good" PC and the
    problem was gone from the "bad" PC. My fear is that eventually this
    same problem will surface on the "good" hard drive... BTW, neither PC
    is connected to the Internet (by design, since I'm using them as stand
    alone workstations).

    Thanks in advance,
As Seen On
