Locked

PC Freezes

By leebenham ·
I've just bought a new PC and have loaded a DVD Player onto it. The CD-ROM works fine on the DVD, but when I try and play a DVD, the PC freezes. The same thing happens when I try and play anything interactive on my PC, i.e. realplayer CNN news etc.....any ideas.......?

Reinstall the DVD program.

I've tried reinstalling the dvd software. This didn't work, so I installed a different DVD software. This also didn't work.

One possible cause for locking up when DVD playing is the region code not set at all or alternatively is the video card is not of a high enough spec which would account for the interactive problems or an problem with DirectX (unsurprisingly). It is difficult to give any more advice without more info m\c spec OS etc
