I've a problem, my computer locks up totally when i insert a dvd in my nec, the only solution is the power-off button, I have reinstalled it with XP Pro SP2, but it didnt help, i have installed the latest bios and so on, new drivers to all my stuff.

Will the DVD drive crash when inserting a data CD? If not, could it be that the autoplay feature is trying to play the DVD and cannot find a proper DVD codec? Do you have any DVD player software installed? Have you tried uninstalling the drive and reinstalling via device manager? or disabling autoplay? Just guessing here. Good luck.
