I'm trying to figure out why a HP pavilion ze5400 with XP would begin to fail to play DVDs. Win Media Player usually starts to play the DVD but freezes by the time the DVD menu plays at the latest, Intervideo just fails to load the DVD, and Real Player freezes. The driver seems to be current (at least as far as I can figure) and reinstalling WMP doesn't change anything. Device Manager reports that the player is operating normally.
The owner (my gf's friend) says it all happened after installing AOL a few weeks ago. My next move is to uninstall AOL and see what happens, any other advice?
