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!

Adaptec 2120S SCSI 320 RAID

Pioneer DVD 120-S
Sony DRU-500A DVD RW
Radeon 9700 Pro
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.
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?
