Question about Toshiba Satellite A135 Notebook
I've tried to play DVD's multiple times and my player simply says:
"Unable to output the video to an external device. Please switch your display device by pressing the Fn + F5 keys after ending the application"
I did what it said to and there was no way to change my device. I went to the control panel and my DVD rom and my Display are both working properly and I don't know what to try next.
I don't know why it is trying an external device because I don't have any displays attached to my laptop.
It sounds like the DVD player software is defaulting to an external monitor connection for the DVD video output. Try installing a different player or reinstalling/reconfiguring the one provided.
