Ws Media Player and VLC Media Player for Windows, Windows 7 Pro 32bit, cannot view or hear correctly, everything is really fast and blank boxes all over video. How do I get the codecs to make it work? I updated the nVidia GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 video card. Optical drive is HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24NS90 SCSI CdRom Device - MoDisc LG Super Multi.

Do you have this problem with any video file?
Or only with those from DVD/CD  discs?
Can you play/see video files from hard drive?
What kind of file video format did you try?

What about a simple .avi or .mp4 from hard disk?
Did you try to copy the .vob from DVD to HDD and then to try to play it from HDD?

I even tried PowerDVD 14 and that isn't working either. Choppy and sound is jerky.

Tried a different video card, VLC Player, settings, Ws Media Player. I think I will try to load OS on another hard drive and see if it works that way. Nothing I or my co-worker has tried will work.

I tried to do a new install and it asks for a driver for cd/dvd rom.

There is a standard driver for DVD/CD Rom in Windows and should work with that.
Did you try another DVD ROM unit? Maybe is faulty, check the cables.
Online, by HP, you can upgrade the firmware of the DVD ROM.
I do not know if the link below will lead you correctly:

I had tried anything I could and almost gave up, and the sata cable was the only thing I hadn't tried.
