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
That is unusual - pressing in case should not effect play - not like a tape drive would.
Are you playing from CD or Hard-drive?
If Cd - try copy music to hard-drive and see how it plays - if ok - then something may be rubbing on CD in CD-Player? But that would give read errors. Have to remove CD Player and clean it.
This is going to be a software glitch. Start by removing and reinstalling the program or programs used for playing and burning CD/DVD's. Then uninstall the drivers for the DVD drive from the device manager and reboot. The machine will find the DVD drive and reinstall the drivers automatically. This will refreshen the drive and software, and should get you back up to speed. If you continue to have the problem, then look for any software that may be conflicting with each other, ie... two different burning programs. Two like programs can conflict at any time due to the program language, settings, or if the two are fighting for which operates the drive, so if you have multiple burning or playing programs, you may want t only use one. A common cause is when a machine comes with the program, but the owner doesn't like the user friendliness or the way it operates, and downloads another to use without removing the existing program. Don't know if this applies to you, but it's a thought.
try connect the speakers externally on green connector on your laptop check if its working . ok otherwise there may be a problem in sound card (may be drivers installing problem or soundcard problem) if not solved call to my mobile : 9440346646
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.
