How do you reset? ctrl-alt-del? Or use the power button.

Uninstall all drivers and DVD programs. Use the Add/Remove Programs under settings to remove you DVD player. Reboot and allow the computer to discover your DVD player. Reload your DVD player program and see if that helps.

which geforce card(ie brand and exact type like GTS, pro,mx)

are you using a software decoder that came with your card?
or are you using another decoder?
is your system overclocked?
do you experience any other problems like freezing during games?

With a CPU at that speed, you don't need a hardware decoder. What drivers are you using for the video card? Have you considered overheating? Does it happen with all DVDs, or just one?
