Please confirm if the laptop was running with or without the battery adapter when you were playing the DVD.

Take the battery out from the laptop and start with the battery adapter connected and see if you see any activity.

Laptops don't die like that.

How do i turn on the media center buttons?


Yo can create custom shortcut by doing the following : Start > All Programs > Windows Media Center, and right click on it. Select properties. Under "target" you will see "%windir%\ehome\ehshell.exe".
Simply add the switches you wish Media Center to start with and hit OK. For example, if your shortcut looked like the following: %windir%\Ehome\Ehshell.exe /nostartupanimation /noshutdownui /mediamode


Hope this helps.
Here is a list bellow.
/nostartupanimation stops the startup sound and Windows Media Center logo "pebble" going off into the distance /noshutdownui removes the "shutdown" item from the tasks menu /mediamode starts in media only mode (no close/minimize/maximize options in top right corner) /widescreen start in widescreen mode, even on 4:3 display (windowed only) /nochrome display windowed mode Media Center but without the window chrome /playallmusic plays all your music instantly /playfavslideshow plays your favorite slideshows only /playfavslideshowwithmusic plays your favorite slideshow with music /playslideshow plays all slideshows /playslideshowwithmusic plays all slideshows with music /screensaver starts the Media Center screensaver /configuress starts Media Center at the "configure screensaver" screen

Sud I turn my p/c every night


i assume you ask "should i turn my pc off every night?"

its a rather tought question and it is debated.

my computers are on 24hours a day, 365 days a year.
most servers areound the world is always on.

the worst thing for computer parts is to get cold -> warm -> cold -> warm ->-> all the time. this is what wears absolutely the most on components in the computer

so lets say you are using the computer in the evening and you are gonna start using it again in the morning, i would say you could just as well leave the computer on.

if you are going away for the weeken i would suggest to turn it off.


There is another concern about this tho. and that is about saving the environment. consuming less electricity.


so to conclude: Yes, if there is no special reason to leave the computer on (downloading files, playing music, whatever), you should shut it down every night.

please rate if you found this helpful
