    Uninstalled all old programs that are no longer needed
    Deleted old userprofiles
    Ran Windows Disk Cleanup and removed all the crap it saw
    Removed all USB devs except kbd and mouse
    Upgraded BIOS
    Upgraded Video driver
    Upgraded various other drivers

    Over the years I've found if you upgrade video drivers and/or BIOS upgrades usually go ahead, provided that the PC is physically capable of being upgraded.

    Did you get an error code / message??

    You will need a PDF viewer program. If you have this it should work.

    You should only require Adobe acrobat reader to view both the download link and the manual and the built in functionality in windows or OSX to uncompress the zip archive of the manual.

    Nah mate, you'll be wasting your time imo. Out of curiosity does the broken DVD player have any audio inputs? If so, you could just run the sound from the cheapie into the surround sound and be done with it.
