Question about HP Pavilion dv7-1130us laptop

1 Answer

I have a new HP Pavilion dv5t notebook (purchased 10/23/08). I can play regular DVD and Blue-ray DVD's on it with no problem using the HP QuickPlay software installed on the PC. I can also connect the notebook to my Mitsubishi 65" HD TV (Mod. WD-65733) via HDMI cable and play regular DVD's with no problem, but when I try to play a Blue-ray I get about 4-6 seconds of both video and audio, then it stops and I get the following error message: "The Content is Protected. The Content is not allowed to play in the current display mode." This is a QuickPlay error message. HP technical support says the PC is functioning properly, but did upgrade the Display Driver to a version released in December 2008 and also upgraded the QuickPlay program. These upgrades did not solve the problem. My HDMI cable is Belkin "Pure/AV" "Full HD" Audio & Video" multi-channel all in one cable" supporting up to 1080p and surround sound (brand new cable). It appears that I can not transmit Blue-ray to my TV using the HDMI cable because i either have a cable problem on a setting on the TV that needs to be changed. Any idea how I can solve this problem?

Hi,

This is a security feature of the High Definition Content that it does not allow veiwing of any high def content on dual displays.

There is a very simple fix to it...
Go to Nvidia control panel..
Select setup multiple displays..
Choose the option Single display ( one display at a time ).

Thats it.. This should enable you to play the blue ray dvds on the external display.

Regards,
Anup

Does HP came up with a solution for blue ray players??? my pavilion dv9000 is not playing my blue ray disk (avatar) what to do??


This happens because this laptop doesn't have a BR optical unit, only a DVD one.If you want to view BR disks you need to install a new optical unit. This is going to be very expensive, take a look at

Can't play blu rays


Your HP computer should come with Quickplay, open the program, click on DVD, on the upper right hand corner on the left side of the rectangular box there should be an icon that looks like a wheel or a gear, click on that and click on Updates, should solve your problem.

Blue ray .....what a loss of time


B.R. is not a loss of time as you said, the problem is that your machine doesn't have the process motor that blu ray requires to play a hd image, first the B.R. image capabilities requires that you screen supports 1080i or 1080p the upscale of BR over dvd is more that you can imagine, i sugest first read specifications before you get a machine that says to play B.R.

I can play dvd and cds in my ble ray but i cant play blueray cd its a hp pavillion notebook


you're notebook is not blue-ray compatible, most likely. You're laptop, dv2000t PC, was made when blue-ray was not manufactured yet. OR, maybe you can try a blue-ray running player software; try searching for it on google.

Can't run a quick play


Quick play is a funny animal, first go to add and remove programs.
Remove quickplay. Reboot unit.
Next, google quickplay 3.7 and download the program.
Next open the quickplay program and allow it to my a new folder.
After quickplay has finished you will have a updated quickplay 3.7 or better and should run with no problems.
Hope this has helped you.

HP dv9000 won't play Blu ray DVDs


The problem is QuickPlay. Some discs work, but those that didn't, played just fine on my PS3. I had to buy Cyberlink PowerDVD 9 Ultra (10 Ultra also plays Blu Ray), and now, they all play on my HP dv4 laptop. Updates won't matter. Don't use QuickPlay, it's very "fical". Hope this saves you time & frustration. It's not you, it's not your Blu Ray drive, or drivers, it's simply the software/program (QuickPlay) that is the problem.
