BSOD whenever I insert a DVD

  1. Anytime I put a DVD into my DVD drive, my computer will reboot and I will get a BSOD. The error I get is a Machine_Check_Exception with the error code: STOP: 0x0000009c(0x00000004,0x8054d5f0,0xb2000000,0x00070f0f). I have tired multiple drivers, and changed the ide cable. When I changed the IDE cable, I was able to play Oblivion. When I shut down and restarted, my computer would not boot until I took the disc out. This problem is recent, as I was able to load DVDs a month ago. The only thing I have changed hardware-wise would be a Viewsonic vx2025wm and a Creative X-Fi xtrememusic.

    My computer:
    AN8-SLI Premium (latest Bios)
    AMD x2 3800+ (Not overclocked)
    eVGA GeForce 7800GT
    1 Gb Corsair XMS TWINX1024-3200C2PRO
    Western Digital 160Gb Caviar (SATA)
    Lite-On Combo Drive
    Creative X-Fi Xtrememusic
    Seasonic S12-430

    I am stumped on this one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Here are my minidumps:

    I cant do rapid share due to it identifying my IP as already downloaded it, (something to do with transparent web proxy's)

    Can you post the complete dumps in 1 zip file and upload to the techspot site, you do this by starting a post and clicking the paper clip at the top of where you type in your question. (unless someone else can get your files)

    I just lowered the resolution from 1680x1050 to 1024x768 and the colors to 16-bit. I put in a DVD and there was no BSOD. Is this my card or a driver? I'm using the nVidia driver 91.31.
