DVD Playback has poor Audio quality with noise!

I just purchased a Toshiba SDM1712 DVD-ROM
and installed PowerDVD XP 4.0 and WinDVD Platinum.

When I play a DVD with either program the audio crumbles and the video
jumps frames.

I tried audio CD's and the sound has no problem. I's only on dvd's.

I just updated directX, audio and video drivers, had DMA enabled but
nothing's changed.

What could be wrong?
Please Help!

I have:
Elite K7S5A Motherboard with on-board soundcard
AMD Athlon Processor,MMX, 3DNow, 900MHZ
Memory: 320MB
3Dfx Voodoo Banshee 16MB
DirectX 9
DivX 5.02
Windows 2000 service pack 2

Hmm. Why do you have TWO prenium DVD players installed? I have heard that having both installed could cause some conflicts. Try totally unistalling either one, and stick with the player you prefer.

Its possible that you need to reinstall and update the sound card driver. If its a VIA chipset, install the 4 in 1s. The video card might be the issue as well, try alternate drivers. Its still possible that the audio settings are too high (Like Dolby Headphones would use more CPU). Check your sound card properties in the control panel adn see if its on full accerelation and digital sound playback enabled. Also, turn off all other unneeded running apps like anti-virus scanner.

I agree with BigPete. You might want to give another video card a try. Also, you could try to disable your on-board sound card and try to install another one.
