My System Specs

Default Watching Blu-Ray is Causing BSOD.

When I try to watch Blu-Ray movies on my new build it plays for about 5 Minutes then Blue screens me.

I am using the following:

Disk Reader: LG BH10
Software: CyberLink PowerDVD - WMP Wouldn't play blu-ray and this came with the disk reader.
Connection: DVI

My system specs are in my sig, but I think you'll find them more than suitable to play blu-ray.. also I can play.. Blu-Ray downloads with VLC. Legal ones of course

Any more information needed, just ask me and I will post back as soon as I can.

ive used powerdvd extensively in the past, havent played muc hwith current versions. solid product,it was.

if your machine is perfectly stable, its probably a software error caused by cyberlink. can you play them with vlc as well? if it goes there too,hmmm...maybe something happens on the reading part of the bluray that makes it crash.

What is the BSOD? IE: Memory_management, Clock interrupt... etc.etc.

Do you get BSODs while doing anything else, such as graphic intensive games?

I have an extremely similar PC and the same LG drive. There should be an LG firmware updater on the disc. Have you tried running it to get the most recent firmware? Are you running the newest GPU driver?
Also, Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the cyberlink suite?

BSOD - Blue Screen of Death, I will try Uninstalling and Reinstalling Cyberlink now.

My system is 100% stable as far as gaming and stress testing (Prime 95 & 3DMark) goes.. I didn't know VLC could play Blu-Ray but if that works I will just uninstall the Cyberlink stuff and stick with VLC I am much more used to it anyway.

Thanks guys.

EDIT: Doesn't look like VLC player can play Blu-Ray discs.. weird how both VLC and WMP can both play movies at Blu-Ray resolutions but cant play it when it's not in a file type and in a disc.

lol. Yes, I realize that, but the BSOD will have a specific code or message that is sometimes helpful in diagnosing problems.

I Completely expect that this is software rather than hardware though.

Did you try the firmware updater? It can be found on the disc that comes with the drive

X:\HiDef\LG_FW_Update

Also, Did you update Cyberlink to the most recent version? (7.3)

Oh sorry Justin I misunderstood you haha, I tried writing it down but the blue screen only lasts for like 1 second before the computer automatically restarts so I cant get it.. Any advice?

I have tried installing All the the new patches - cant find this firmware update thing you talked about I even tried using the link you gave me but changing the X to C and E for my computer.. this is so annoying.. could it have something to do with me being in 64 Bit windows 7? because I pass Prime & 3DMark fine but this (AND now GTA4) Crash..

-GTA4: Just noticed this recently, when I put the settings up high in GTA4 I don't get a blue screen my monitor just acts like I turned the pc off and goes into Power save mode? which I am guessing is the GPU failing...

How can Nvidia's Best GPU not run a 3 year old game?

Oh well thanks for your help so far.
