    When I play a dvd with power dvd the sound goes out (no sound) avter about two minutes in. If I try to play the dvd with windvd, i get an error "Create Overlay Failed"

    I have a Compaq Evo 800v notebook computer with Windows 2k, newest bios, direct x, video and audio drivers.

    Please help.

    This is a work laptop and I am the local "computer guru." I volunteered to get it to play DVDs. It is the only computer we have that has a DVD drive in it. I thought it would be something simple to fix. It still doesn't play dvds using windvd.

    It gives this error: Create Overlay Failed

    Is there a free dvd player that I can use. Anything that works is fine I don't need all the bells and whistles.

    Thanks
