Hi all! I 've come across this site before occasionally for various purposes, but now I'm a forum member because I must post this problem I'm having. When I play DVDs on my Dell Inspiron E1705 laptop, the playback is choppy, both audio and video together. I've searched around on the internet to find solutions but no solution has worked yet. DVDs used to play fine on my laptop. However, a while ago my computer was erased by linux and I had to reinstall Windows XP Media Center. I also installed the programs Nero Burning Rom and Imtoo DVD creator. They are uninstalled now, but playback is choppy. I think these programs ephed up the quality of playing DVDs. I'm no computer guru, sp what do you think is the problem? I just want to watch DVDs again. Thanks!
