When playing DVD sound stutters and gets slower and slower
When trying to play a short DVD, everything loads as usual. The sound/music comes on and the sound skips and gets gradually slower. I don't want to spray air into the actual disc drive until I talk to an expert. The sounds from songs on music library are fine.
Haven't had a single problem with this laptop. It pretty much sits in the same place in my home office, but i haven't opened up anything in the back to clean it ever since we bought it. Could it be a dust problem?
By the way, the exact number is Toshiba Satellite M105-S322

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!
this can be caused by a number of things are you playing music through your cd rom
If you are using your CD/DVD drive, use a cleaner.
The lens may be dusty and causing skips/stutters place a couple of drops onto the cd and run it
scroll to bottom toolbar(bottom of screen) right click select task manager applications you will see whats running if you see anything you dont need running select end nowand you might uninstall that specific program if you or computer does not require it to run also under processes see what is ticking over in the background again if you see something you dont need to be running select end now you might have a virus or malware
Put a cd in the dvd player if it is marked that it plays cds... if it plays the cd your dvd laser is shot... cheaper to get a new unit. if it doesn't play a cd try cleaning the laser. and last but not the last thing try unplugging it for a short time then plug it back in... if nothing works get the one tool that fixs most everything...... take it to office depot and they can recycle the stuff inside and help keep the earth green...then onto wally world.
If it only happens with one disc, try using a Disc Doctor/Skip Doctor on it. These instruments will repair scratches and depending on the disc, repair pinholes in the disc. Usually it's just polishing the surface of the disc. Some instruments totally resurface the disc by stripping off a thin layer of the disc to remove scratches and other damage. (Used game/music stores will do this).

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.
