Question about Televison & Video
SOURCE: DVD Decoder
Can you run any DVD on your laptop? If not, my first thought is that you don't have DVD software loaded. If your laptop indeed has a DVD drive you should have received software with it to play DVDs, such as PowerDVD or WinDVD.

are you trying to play DVDs from a different region ?
PC DVD Drives, are region set to the computer, if you have a region 1 dvd drive, trying to play region 2 dvds et,c. it won,t let you. theres a couple of ways around this. go to Afterdawn ( on the web ) and download a region free dvd device.
Solution 2. try to obtain any updates or re-install windows media player. suggest player version 9 or above.
Mike @ compurepair.
p.s finally is to check that your drive, indeed supports DVD Or certain types of dvd media. i.e DVD+ Or DVD- some only support One type.

I've heard there is a way to do it with a chip.
Some say DVD players can be changed by changing the region in the control panel setting however it typically disables playback unless it is programmed for the right region as listed on the back of the player as well as the owners manual.
The best way to do it is to use a DVD player on your computer. You can go into the properties of the DVD player and change the region that way.

Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.
