My laptop won't play region 1 dvds, I bought the laptop in the uk and now moved to canada, can anybody please assist me


From Control Panel, click System, Device Manager, click + beside DVD Drive, right click you drive and select properties, DVD Region Tab, and change Region to Canada. You can only chnage this 5 times until it locks on the last change. Look into a program called AnyDVD as it will play Region Free.

I need to change the region from 1 to 4


You have to go to the device manager of the operating system. List the hardware. Right click on the actual dvd drive and select the area that you want to change the region to. It will display the region.

Reigon code


The region code for the DVD drive can be change 5 times. After the 5th time, the drive is locked to that region. This is by design, and Dell will not warrant the drive for being locked or help circumvent the DVD Region code system.

You can search google for region code reset and find possible workarounds.

Region setting on Acer Aspire 8920


Older DVD drives use RPC-1 firmware, which means the drive allows DVDs from any region to play. Newer drives use RPC-2 firmware, which enforces the DVD region coding at the hardware level. These drives can often be reflashed with hacked or Australia and New Zealand (hardware region coding prohibited by law in these countries) RPC-1 firmware, effectively making the drive region-free. However, this usually voids the warranty and can render the drive inoperable if something goes wrong... better contact your laptop manufacturer regarding this
