GTXP and DVDs

For some reason I can no longer play DVDs on my PC. Whichever program I use it crashes. I tried Power DVD, WinDVD, Interactual Player and Windows Media Player. They ALL crash. If I remove or disable my GTXP then I can watch DVDs but what's the point of that? Then I have no sound!

My system:
Asus P4C800
512MB Kington HyperX PC3500
Adaptec 2120S SCSI 320 RAID
2 Seagate 15K Cheetahs 72GB RAID 0
Pioneer DVD 120-S
Sony DRU-500A DVD RW
Radeon 9700 Pro
Hercules GTXP
Klipsch Pro Media 5.1

I tried moving the Adaptec and the GTXP to different slots. I made sure that the onboard sound was disabled. I reformatted and reinstalled. I even swapped out the mobo with an MSI Neo-LSR. Still crashes. I'll try swapping RAM next. I have a pair of OCZ PC3500 I could swap from another system. Other than this headache everything else seems fine. Weird, eh?

Okay, brain. You don't like me, and I don't like you, but let's get through this thing and then I can continue killing you with beer. -- Homer Simpson.

  1. Well, it's not the ram. It seems like an incompatibility with the GTXP software. Try uninstalling it, and removing the drivers for it. Then download the drivers from <A HREF="http://www.hercules.com" target="_new">http://www.hercules.com</A> and reinstall those drivers.

    Out of curiosity, the sound works fine normally, right?
