I guess you need to replace the DVD player now. it may not show any damaged sign on the out side. the laser inside of the dvd player most likely suffered damage.

My Dell Studio 1735 won't play DVD Movies. Cyberlink Power DVD 10 say's it has stopped working,application crashed.Tried Win DVD 2010,same thing.Tried an external DVD burner that I know works,same...


Try to copy the dvd-es on the hard disk before playing ...and this way you will see if it is a reading issue or just the application software you use is not capable to read them anymore..(it may have been an trial or it is out of date ) ..
My advice is to install a another program ..and try again ..if the dvd-ea are not read well from the hdd..
try VLC player (it free) ..or ..another dvd player on the net ...

The hard drive crashed will not start


If the hard drive have crashed meaning that the hard drive itself is damaged, then your solution is to replace a new harddrive. If you do have a recovery disc already made, or one is provided then you will have to use that disc once the hard drive is replaced with the new one, and follow the procedure to reinstalled the operating system. If the original hard drive had crash and does no work anymore (where the bios/computer cannot detect it) and you have important data that you would like to retrive, there are places such as office depot, bestbuy, where they can help you send it to a recovery file center to recover files from your damaged hard drive. Do not attemp to fix or open a damaged harddrive, you can forever damage the files on the cyclinder disc. 2) Now if your harddrive crash in term as windows just crashing and you cannot get into your operating system and the bios is still able to detect the hard drive, and it's giving you a error message, then you will only need to reinstall, or do a windows recovery through your recovery disc, If you do not have a recovery or made the disc, then you will need to buy a new operating system software. If you computer does not start meaning no display on the screen at all, then please replay back. That is a different story.

Can I swap the hard drive in my hp dv8000 into my hp dv 4305?


Both laptops? It depends if they are both SATA or both IDE drives. MY dv8000 has SATA hard drives. So you should be able to...as long as the connections are the same.

Theres a good chance that you broke electrical connections inside the laptop, and crashed the hard drive or even maybe shattered the hard drive.

I can not seem to copy dvds onto my hard drive to


extremely difficult because of copy write protection. Requires special software and not all of it works all the time. Look for software on the internet. You will find some free programs to try. The illegal guys have made it hard for those who buy legitimate and just want to copy their own stuff.
