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.

DVDs do not play on LCD monitor


If you see the dvd on the laptop and not the monitor:
Your problem is probably with your video card and its settings and not the monitor.
Some video cards wont support dvd playback on two screens at once.
What you have to try is to enable only the external monitor and disable the laptop lcd.
This can be done using shortcut keys on the laptop (usually this involves using the Fn key and one of the F# keys at the same time- the F# key may have a picture of two screens on it or be labeled CRT-LCD)
You can also change the settings in the display properties settings.

Sometimes the display settings as far as resolution are set too high for some dvd players. Lowering the resolution can take care of that problem.

How do I get to at least watch a DVD or VCR


if after the hello display you open the tray and inserted already the dvd push play and the thing is always with the hello and after reasonable time (one minute) and nothing change the display stil with the hello thing:
use another dvd and the same answer.
your dvd is not read in the memory because the set is not able to do it and the memory is waiting for that data. So your Dvd memory is waiting for the mechanism to send that data and say: hello.
So time to visit a repair place. to amke sure about any estimate.

My computer wont let me watch movies now. it keeps saying something about my dvd decoder wasnt installed.


if you bought the computer new or the DVD drive new , you whould have got a CD with it , most probably with something like WinDVD or something , if you have the specific CD with DVD software on it install it , as it will enable you to watch DVD's using Windows media player etc..

if you bought the computer second hand etc.. and or cant find the cd's a free solution is to download VLC media player (Download here) the only disadvantage about using this free solution is that you will have to play the DVD's through VLC you wont be able to use windows media player etc. to play DVD's as VLC does not require decoder software to play DVD's

otherwise you can purchase software such as WinDVD and this will enable you to play using your media player of choice.

Thanks!

Can't play dvd in my sony vaio laptop


The Vaio / Sony combo DVD drives are renowned to be some of the worst on the market. Sony puts the cheapest cr*p in their laptop and it should be no surprise that after a couple of reads (10+) and writes (10+), your combo drive will be as good as junk... dead weight in your laptop. You'll also hear strange repetitive noises coming from it. I have 3 solutions:
1) Go to the Vaio support site, type your model number to get its page and search DVD upgrade firmware. This should 2 files. One is a .bin and the other is an executable to flash the drive with that .bin file. If the problem still persists then bad news.
2) Buy a USB2 external combo drive. This should be real cheap nowadays.
3) Check impactcomputers for a replacement internal drive. Prices have come down but still quite pricey.

Also if you can let those f*cks at Vaio know what you had to go through, that'd be great.
