Question about Dell Inspiron E1405 Notebook

1 Answer

Shaky sound and video

For lack of a better way of saying it, the sound and video chatters when I try to play a DVD (and sometimes any video) on my E1405 Dell Laptop. This problem has happened before, but I don't remember what fixed it. I can record a video, then play it back fine, but to just play it, its almost like a skip on a record as it just stutters along in an irritating way.

To solve this:

1- Check if you have more than 1 DVD player program installed. If yes, uninstall any you don't use (being careful not to uninstall the one you use or that's needed for the recording part of what you do)
2- Check if you have more than 1 Media player software like VLC media player, Microsoft Media player (automatically installed) etc.

Because it also affects video played saved on your computer (assuming AVI or video you play using Windows Media Player or another player) and DVD playback, its usually a program that is conflicting with another of the same type (plays media Audio/Video). If the above solution did not work, try performing the "system restore" and choose a date of when you definitely remember it working without chatter. If this is not an option, proceed below.

If your computer has been performing regular updates and you happen to be using a new Windows Media player, do you remember if it happened during a computer software update? If yes, the fault lies with Windows Media player having performed an upgrade to itself. You may want to "demote" media player by going to Control Panel and "add or remove programs" list (making sure "show updates" is checked) and scroll down until you see Windows Media player. Then uninstall the latest update it has performed.

If you installed another media player/DVD player program(s) and it coincides with your problems, uninstall it. Multiple DVD/Media players have their own settings, file changes/updates and they can affect one another if installed simultaneously on 1 system.

What video files will this head unit play?


Yeah, it has to do with the codecs that you have in your player.
There are so many ways to encode video material and if your player is lacking the appropriate software they will not play back. The media players on computers are far more adept at playing videos - VLC will play back just about anything. but with TV's it is a crapshoot - DVD players are generally better then the tv's but still there is some material that even they will not play back unless it is in the right format for them.

MP4 is a video file. MP3 is audio. When setting your player make sure you tell it that it is a video file and not audio. If I mess up the two on my dvd player I will have a problem - I have to properly identify my source as either video or audio.

Hi there my xbox 360 will play dvds/cds but will not play games it just says play dvd when a game disc is inserted in the console can you please help me thanks mr shane arnell


Sounds like the Xbox 360's disk drive is starting to fail. Knocking on the top of the Xbox (when its on its side) while loading a game can sometimes get it to work, but its better to have your Xbox repaired or replace.

I have a samsung dvd-v4600...and when i put the dvd disc in it just keeps loading and will not load ..what do i do to fix this?


Hi,
Does it do with original DVD or copied DVD ?.
if the original one works fine but the others not, your DVD may not capable of playing copy -R/RW discs..even though your DVD specs says: Plays DVD-Video, video-mode DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW, CD-R/CD-RW, MP3 CD, Kodak Picture CD, and JPEG image CDs, sometimes this happens due to bad recording of DVD .Try to use better recorded DVD or if possible use the original ones..
Thanks in advance for rating me..Regards

No matter what DVD player I use on the computer, the sound is very shaky and doesn't come in well. It is not the DVD because I have tried all of my DVDs. The sound on the movie sounds as if it is buffering...


since you've tried different dvd drives, that shaky sound may occur from your output device, or to your sound slots, try to clean your board with cautions.
