DVD playback results in high cpu usage!

June 6, 2010 at 12:50:18
Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate, Intel Core i3 CPU, 2.00GB DDR3 RAM

I had my computers hardware updated my updated specs are as follows:

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU 530 @ 2.93GHz
RAM: 1.933 DDR3
64-bit OS

Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT

I have reason to believe that the big upgrade caused my DVD player to die or something, but I cannot play DVD related discs of any kind. As soon as I put a DVD in it, the CPU usage jumps to 30% - 40% (which is very high to the usual 0%- 5%). This results in very choppy and laggy performance - both with audio and video.

I cant even get teh dvd to load, or anything else on the computer when I put that DVD in, very frustrating. I do have videos on my computer (downloaded), which play without a problem.

So: lose wires, burnt out DVD player, settings improperly set-up, or DVD drive can no longer be compatible?

Any and all input will be appreciative! :)

Thanks, Dronald.

When you say you use any DVD, are these video's only?

What software are you using when viewing the DVD's?

Did you update your video card software?
