I am experiencing a lot of problems with the DVD player on my laptop. When I insert a DVD, it will begin to load and quite frequently an error message will appear saying that the HP Quickplay will shut down ("not responding"), will shut down. When the DVD does launch, it seems as though it gets "stuck". I did load the DVD on another laptop and there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the DVD (it isn't scratched, etc.). What can I do to fix the problem? It is really frustrating to say the least. I can't seem to get through a single DVD without encountering problems

Try using a third party program like WinDVD or InterVideo. You can get free downloads of a lot of them, and HP has never had the best record for player technology so they can use all the help they can get!
Are you using a store purchased DvD or one someone made? Most computers have problems with on someone made. Try a store purchased DvD and see if it loads.
Maybe the dvd format can't be read by your player software. Windows Media Player has problems with some dvd's.
Click Start/My Computer and see if your dvd player is listed as a component. If not, that's the problem.
If the player is not shown under my computer then you will need to remove upper and lower filters.
Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.
I am presenting below solution by keeping in mind that the webcam software is installed on your laptop.
Compaq laptops come with QuickPlay features that allow you to conveniently access your built-in webcam. Use the QuickPlay software to activate the webcam in your Compaq laptop and record videos and photos right onto your hard drive. The software is straightforward and simple to understand for both novice and experienced computer users.
Click the "Start" icon and type "quickplay" into the search field. Click the "QuickPlay" entry that appears in the results. Alternately, press the "QuickPlay" button located near the laptop's display.
Click the "Video" icon in the QuickPlay interface that opens, then double-click the "HP Webcam" option in the "Source" window. The image from your webcam appears on the screen.
Do post if you still find problems in accessing the webcam.
HP Quickplay is already a blotware (bulky). Try some other players like VLC or media player classic.
About the touchpad, there's no scroll because u have not loaded the driver at startup. Only basic touchpad driver is loaded. So, u need to add the driver program to startup. I hope it would be of synaptics. Run the pgm in program files folder. Ur scroll will be fine
