    Exactly what kind of problem are you having -- is it stuttering, missing parts of the movie, dark, what? It's tough to tell you how to fix it without knowing just what's broken.

    A couple generic ideas:
    -- If you're missing parts of the movie, like it just seems to skip around a bit, you may have too many things running in the background that are using memory. Quit programs you don't need, such as your Web browser; make sure your antivirus programs aren't running a scan.

    -- Try a different piece of software. You don't say what you're using. I'm a big fan of a free program called VLC, available here:
    The default keys are a little odd to me, but it works great and will play -anything-.

    -- Chances are, if it's not playing well, it's not a problem with the drive. It may be a video card problem; check for a more up-to-date video card driver. I can't seem to find out what video card you have -- the closest computer Acer lists is the TM 520, and only offers the original video card driver. Consider running the free RadarSync utility from It's -very- buggy, but it might get you started.

    -- Also update your Windows internal video card drivers. Google "download DirectX" for the file directly from Microsoft. It's a small initial download, but the file you run will download more updates.

    Please write back if none of this is in the ballpark and/or you can better explain your problems.

Please can you tell me how i can reinstall my built in webcam? i dont know how to. ~thanks~


go to the start key bottom left of the keyboard
then up to programs
then over to the right to acer empowering technology
then over the right again to acer erecovery management and click on it
then choose reinstall aplications/drivers
then click on the contents
then scroll down to the driver or application that you want to reinstall
and while you are there it is a good idea to reinstall the realtek audiio driver
because that plays up quite often

good luck
please let us know if fixya fixed it for ya

Teac cd- 224e device driver

I experienced this problem with my brand new Toshiba Satellite P205D. I spoke with their tech support, who directed me here:

It resolved the problem. It involves deleting two values from the registry. Be sure to back up your registry before you do anything to it.

I want to add that I was impressed with the phone call. I was on hold for less than a minute and the solution came fast. And it wasn't even a Toshiba problem--it was Windows.
