    Remmber you need the right software to run certain dvd media formats , I would go to and search for a dvd converter program and called GOM Player , let me know how this works for you ,Roy

    mohitagar198 Nov 06, 2012

    To be precise I'm trying to run a DVD containing Ubuntu. The problem is my DVD drive isn't recognizing the disc. Do you think the GOM player will help in this thing. Make note that this DVD worked few months back.

SOURCE: Dell Laptop inspiron B130 Cd/DVD player will not work

DVD43 is freeware and does not get updated very often. Although, there has been at least one update recently according to the threads I could find. I would try updating to the most current driver for DVD43 and see if that fixes the problem. If not try to remove the program again once the drivers have been updated. Some times a program will not remove through regular means when something in the program is corrupt. Hope this helps...

Open your Windows Explorer (My Computer) window. Is the DVD/CD icon there? If it's not there, follow these steps:

  1. Click the following link to download the remove upper/lower filters from the windows registry._ (RmvFltrs.exe). Save the file to the Windows Desktop.

    Unzip then,
  2. For Windows XP, double-click the file RmvFltrs.exe on the Windows Desktop to start the installation program.

    For Windows Vista, right-click the RmvFltrs.exe file, and choose the "Run as Administrator" option. If a User Account Control dialog box displays the message, "An unidentified program wants access to your computer", click Allow.

  3. Follow the onscreen prompts to complete the installation.

SOURCE: i've installed windows 7 in my toshiba

I think the problem is that the A300 is a discontinued model and if I am not mistaken there is probably no windows7 drivers for the camera istalled on that model, perhaps using an extrnal cam is another solution. good luck

Hp pavilion g windows 7 wont play dvd


Try booting to safe mode and try playing your DVD there. If it doesn't work, then try updating the driver of your DVD player by going to the device manager. If no go, then try resetting the DVD player by removing it and putting it back in.

If it doesn't work, then you might need to buy a new one.

By the way, do you have RadarSync in your computer already? RadarSync automates your computer's driver updates. If you don't have it yet, then I suggest that you install it so that you can avoid from having outdated drivers and device drivers related problems.

CD player will not work

Try a different CD. iIf the computer doesn't recognize it at all, listen for the drive to spin and look for a blinking light on the CD tray. These signs do not necessarily mean the CD drive isn't broken. I would find the model number of your laptop and do a search on eBay for a replacement CD drive. These are very easy to switch out. If the new one works, then you're set. If it doesn't work, there may be an issue with your motherboard.
