Need AMD Blu Ray compatible motherboard

So when I built this system last year I did it on a budget and with not enough knowledge.
I am still lacking in the knowledge area.
Heres my problem.
I just recently purchased a Blu Ray drive but my system will not play BluRay.
It will play regular DVD's.
I know I will have to upgrade my monitor as well. Current resolution is 1400 x 900.
What motherboard/memory do I need to play Blu Rays?

I have:

955BE cpu
500w PSU
AM2 Motherboard
Sapphire 5750 GPU
Samsung BluRay player
CoolerMaster Mid Tower Case.

Thanks for your advice.

    Your problem has nothing to do with the motherboard.

    Check the CD that came with your Sapphire 5750. You probably have to install software to view Blu-ray movies. Also make sure you have the latest drivers installed.

    Here's the link to Sapphire's download section: http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/downloads/download_index.aspx?psn=0006
  2. Thank You for pointing me i the right direction.
    I downloaded the most recent drivers from Sapphire and AMD.
    To no avail. So I removed the 5750, downloaded a different blu ray player software.
    Now it works. When I get time I will reinstall the GPU and restest using the different software.

    Thanks
  3. You need BluRay software like CyberLink's PowerDVD 11 to play BR movies; I use the Ultra version. Try the Trial version -> http://www.cyberlink.com/

    If you purchased an OEM Samsung BluRay player then it typically comes with no software, but most retail BR drives do come with BluRay. It will read BR/DVD data as OEM.
