The problem is not your hard drive, if you are using vista then there are compatbility issues with certain programmes, if yoou are using XP all you need to do is download the latest codecs, this also goes for vista, try not to use XP programmes with vista because you will run into problems

it might be your Flash player. Just update your Flash player to latest one. It depends on your viewing time, also. If a lot of them watch same video at same time, it slows down the server or just freezes it.

I can watch vcd but not dvd on my notebook.


Hi there.
If the lens was damaged it wouldn't read at all.
Its asking for a decoder, you have to buy these, they are programs like PowerDVD etc.
If you don't want to pay for a decoder then use VLC Player, this will play your DVD's as its universal.

Acer aspire 5600 shut down


the only way you can upgrade the graphics on a laptop is to purchase a graphics accelerator card that plugs in to the usb slot, its not an upgrade as such but it will allow you to play high res games on the laptop, there would have to be a memory upgrade to go with that also

Nvidia are doing some good laptop accelerators at the moment but they are expensive!!!

kind regards

Acer aspire 5600 shut down


it sounds like the video card cannot support or handle the pressure put on it by the game you are trying to play, if it is an OEM game have a look for the minium system requirements that the game will run on, you can also find this information on line, you will probably find out that the graphics card doesn't support the game, do this check with all games you try to play
another thing is to upgrade your memory because some laptops don't have a devoted graphics card thus they are relient on the system memory

good luck
