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.

hi, I think this may help. what you need to do first of all is change the default player for DVD's from Toshiba Video Player to Windows Media Player, cant remember off hand how to do that but should be in manual, but try this. go to windows control panel, select 'Default Programs' and click on it, then select 1st option 'Set Your Default Programs' a list of all programs will come up, look for Windows Media Player and click on it, then choose one of the options on the right. The top one sets as default, the bottom one allows you to set file types to open with the program. this should work as it is telling your system to launch that program for DVD's etc, If you cant find your control panel, simply click Start and type it in the little box that appears just above it. hope this helps
There is problem on your DVD or software which u have install that does not support the file.Most probably VLC is the only media player which can give large support for media files.Please download and install vlc media player.
U have not mentioned that what have u experienced with other media players like Win Media Player, if that works fine, u have to reinstall the Toshiba DVD player software from the official website of toshiba by following the link below; http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=EU Hope this will solve the problem.
Ok, you must try to re-start your machine with the dvd of recovery inserted, when it appears the screen of toshiba presses F12, and selects the appropriate bay, if on having executed the unit of DVD, this it reads the disc perfectly the problem is of Software and you solve it with a patch that Microsoft has, where you must edit the record of the machine and correct an instruction, must look for the site of Microsoft.
