I had this problem once, and as it turned out my RAM was damaged, I had to get it replaced. So check your RAM if it is working properly. If you have two RAMs and even if only one of them is malfunctioning, then too the problem will occur.

Is there a site where i can download win dvd center for sony vaio laptop fw355j i cant burn dvds without it

Here is a link to all the drivers and software for your PC. choose your operating system.
windvd is second from the bottom.
To find out what you have for an OS right click my computer (or open my computer and right click a empty part in the folder window,.. your choice) and select properties. This will open your "system" properties window and give you info on your PC. (bookmark this page)

Here is a review of windvd
Read it if you use Windows 7.
It loads a bunch of junk from 2005 with it. Would not go on my PCs.

Here is a site (that I trust) with a list of free software to handle your burning tasks. some of these will be pretty good some others not so much.

If you are going to pay for windvd, ( hopefully you won't have to from your Sony driver site) in my opinion your money would be better spent on Nero.
I use Nero. Be careful if you do go with Nero, as there is alot of stuff that can be installed you may not need or want.
Also very careful to read and look for check boxes to opt out when downloading and installing any software these days, as toolbars/browsers and crapware love to move in and make themselves at home on your PC.

Let me know it this helped you or not.
Post your answers as a comment or reply and I'll be notified.
Thank you

I have WinDVD player on my labtop. It won't play

If you Right clik on the desktop,you will open a window,and at the bottom will be "personalize",(assuming you have Vista).Or even XP will do the same,just called different.Look for "Display Settings" and you will find "Screen Resolution" and "Colors". Try different Res's until it looks good to screen size,and lower your "Colors" to >16 bit.

DVD Player On Laptop Stopped Working

Does it work for anything? Does it read data or audio CDs? Canyou save files to it? Can you format a CD/RW? If NOT reinstall the DRIVER.
If it does I would reinstall the DVD display program,such as WINdvd.

Give this a try it should help if you goto you should find a codec pack. Download it and install. dvd's and cd's not working due to not having a lot of codecs installed is a common problem. Start with that first see if it helps. If not post and let me know

My dvd player will show the video but there's no sound

Still haven't solved the dvd audio issue but it DOES play flawlessly on WinDVD. It still won't play on Real Player OR on Windows Media Player. So I'll just have to lay dvd's on WinDVD.

DVD player in Toshiba laptop won't work

First check that it is indeed a CD/DVD drive.

Also, you didn't say whether it was a video or data DVD. Assuming it's a video DVD, you'll need an mpeg2 decoder. (Something like WinDVD, PowerDVD, or Nero Showtime, or one of the many open source alternatives)

If neither video or data DVD's will work, you may need to update your driver for the drive, on the Toshiba website.
