Jumppy DVD on computer


I have got a 5x Creative DVD player. When i play a dvd the image and the music often skip. So i went to my local PC shop and asked for MPEG decoder card. After they said they don't sell them anymore they said that a new graphics card would sort the problem. I was using a Voodoo Banshee APG card but they sold me a "NVIDA GeForce2 MX" APG card. They said that should sort out the problem. But it didn;t

So i was wondering would a new processor and motherboard sort the problem out. At the moment i have a AMD K6-2 450 and a GA-5AX ali aladdin V APGset motherboard.

So i was wondering if i needed a new processer and board and if i do what would you sugest.

Also i am running windows XP and could that be a problem?

DMA is enabled for the DVD-Rom drive and i am using PowerDVD to play them

You didn't mention one of the most important things... How much RAM do you have?

Also... What size Hard drive? How much free HD space do you have? Have you tried Defragging the PC? Is your antivirus software running? Have you tried disabling it?? Those are a few of the things I tried.

If your video card is handling the decoding properly, then it could be system resources thats the problem... My PC with the DVD Rom is a PIII 733 with 256mb and I have an ATI Rage Fury AGP Video card and have no problems playing DVDs.

Good luck!

do you have powerdvd xp? if so, go to the config>video, and enable hardware acceleration. this will enable the dvd decoder on the geforce 2.
