Take one step back from the keyboard and take a deep breath.

1) this is either a video card conf issue or a faulty drive.
2) I will show you the tests, you run them.
First let's test the video.
Collect the following info.
GL_RENDERER = ???
GL_VERSION = ???
GL_VENDOR = ???
GL_EXTENSIONS = ???
At the bottom of the screen you should see something like this:
2782 frames in 5.0 seconds = 552.702 FPS
let it run for at LEAST 5 lines, collect that info.
Okay with that, do you have a XviD or Divx5 encoded file, the length should be at least 10 mins. Play that file and report back on quality. Does it lag? Does it should right? etc.
Next testing the drive.
Next test, put in a Audio CD and listen to it. Does the audio should good? Does the music skip?
And the finally test, put in a data CD. Anything with over 100MB, copy the contents of the data cd to a folder on your Hard Disk, you can delete what you copied. Does it copy correctly? How long did it take? etc.
