Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I play DVDs on my HP Pavillion dv5220, the sound and picture lag even when using different DVD playing programs. Why is the DVD stuttering, and what can I do to fix it?

Picture is clear, but film lags/sound stutters when played on both Quickplay and Windows Media Player, used multiple brand new discs to test. Internet videos play normally. The sound lags on my external speakers and through the built-in computer speakers.

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!

I have used my up all my regions on my HP Pavillion laptop it has a pioneer dvd player in it. How do I get it to unlock and play all DVDs forever?


You can use VLC Media Player, a free program that can be downloaded from http://www.videolan.org .

This program ignores the region codes of your DVDs and can play any disc.

I hope that you find this information helpful.

My hp pavilion a305w will not let me play dvds


First of all you'll need a DVD-Rom Player. If you go to my computer and you see the drives you have. Drive C and

DVD-Rom station or CD-rom Station.
If it's not listed you don't have a DVD-rom player and you can never play dvd's unless you work with images and image drive software like daemon tools or alcohol 120%.

If you do have a DVD-rom player you can play dvd's with Cyberlink Powerdvd or BS-player. Even with Windows Media Player.

It depends on the operating system you have.

Hope this was helpfull. If questions i am happy to answer.

Defrag your machine, then try it again. Also clean out the drive before defrag. Start, programs, accessorys, system tools, disk cleanup

Dvd drive


You might try unistalling the drivers and reinstalling them from the device manager. However, this sounds like a harware issue, your DVD drive may be shot.

No picture, only sounds when playing DVD


Hi,

The issue might be that you could be missing some codes to play the dvds.

First i want to uninstall all the codecs from the control panel - add/remove programs.

Then download the latest vesion of klite codec pack with the player.

The link is :

http://ftp.freenet.de/pub/filepilot/windows/multimedia/video/k-lite_codec_pack/klcodec390f.exe

Install this by selecting "lots of stuff" with the player.

Then play your DVD, it will work fine.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

DVD player sound


is the dvd a retail dvd, or a copied dvd? can you play music cd's ok? if the sound is stuttering, you may have too many other programs running. Check the systme tray amd close down all other apps and icons. most likely a problem with the laptop needing more memory to play the dvd. also try another dvd player like vlc or divx.com, or xvid.org for updated player codecs.

Playback stutter


Realplayer is ok for small .wav files and for browsing videos on the internet, but for watching a dvd i would use either Power DVD or Windows media player as they have all the supported sound and video codecs Some media players have truoble reading different dvd depending on how they were burned or the file quality.
