I run Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I have 12GB Memory and a LG SATA 12x Blu-ray Burner. I run a HD6950 2GB Graphics Card and 3 monitors. I run 4 x SSD in RAID 0, so I think I have plenty of power. I run a i7 920 processor (Not overclocked).

When trying to play a Blu-Ray disc on the above PC, everything (even menus) have hundreds of corrupted graphic squares everywhere (Constantly changing). I have updated the graphics drivers and tried moving the media player to different screens without any difference.

I run PowerDVD v8 bundled with my SATA Blu-ray burner.

Anyone got any ideas what's likely to be wrong.

I've had issues similar to that when playing other formats.
It turned out I had problems with my player software.

Have you tried using another player, perhaps: media player classic home cinema?

I have a feeling bluray support is built in to win 7(although could be wrong), you could uninstall powerdvd and try playing just with windows media player.

I think.. but am not sure that your problem is that you have multiple displays. Try temporarily removing two of them (physically unplug them) and see what happens when you play a bluray then. It is nothing to do with power and everything to do with HDCP.

Seems that it is just two disks (Glee Season 1) that are having the issues. I can play some of my other disks just fine.

Doesn't seem like it would be a HDCP problem if that is the case is it?

Have you tried a firmware update?

I could not get PDVDv8 to play most new release discs due to updated copy protection. I use v10MKII with no issues now, altho some discs were not supported in MKI, hence the extra update.
To confirm if it is a copy protection issue use the trial of Slysofts AnyDVD HD. If everything works upgrade your PDVD to the latest version
