Do you have a Next or continue button? if you do and you are sure that the ac adapter is plugged in just go ahead with the update. It's just trying to make sure that the power won't cut off while it's doing the update.
It can't read the codec of your DVD because it's either the file in the DVD is bad or if your computer doesn't have the necessary codec to read the file.
To update your codec file you can try to download K-lite codec pack, follow this link:
Video Codecs are needed if in any case some videos wont recognized by your computer due to different file format. You can download free codecs over the internet and they are absolutely free. Here is the link for one of the codecs available over the internet.
It appears that the Windows is corrupted on your computer, you can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.
If the above steps are not working then I am sorry to say that it is going for repair as the Hard disk might have corrupted.
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!!!
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
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
