Make sure your speakers and dvd player disk is clean. Skips are common from the lazer reading and will read much better with a quick check on the cd.

My PC wont play album I requested.


You only need compatible dvd player software to listen to movie dvd disks. For playing standard audio cd disks, nothing is needed since this support comes built in-to the OS, (Windows XP or higher)

Try to re install the dvd programs and try also to clean the dvd head maybe there is a dust cover the lens of the dvd. Use dvd cleaner but if still not working try to clean it manually .If you can open the cover of the dvd clean the head lens by smooth cotton cloth or cotton bud don't use any liquid to avoid more damage of the lens. But if still not working i suggest that you need to buy a new dvd.

Movie freezes, skips.


Does sound like the laser. Realitically, not worth repairing. I'd say you'd be worth connecting a cheap DVD player to the system - then the Sony can carry on providing the surround sound audio and the new DVD player can provide the video. Then, if the cheap DVD player is still going, it can move to a bedroom TV if and when you replace the surround system....

Otherwise, I would imaging the speaker set (and even the non-working DVD player) on its own might fetch a reasonable price on an auction site - anyone who has a stolen DVD unit will probably be desparate for the speakers as Sony don't sell them separately!

Shuts off after a loud sound


Hmmm...not sure but sounds like the vibration from the loud sound is causing the disk to jump. Not sure why that would power it off, but I think your thought to junk it sounds reasonable.

Cd drive skipping


hey,
i have inspiron 6400 myself, with vista home edition installed.

your e1505 is the new version of my dell

spec and review here on e1505 http://blog.miguelovitch.dk/2007/12/18/dell-inspiron-e1505-replace-6400/

I can watch movies both online and 'offline'. DVDs, mpeg, avi, and wmv format and more.

I think you have some problems with your media player or codec.

Are you using xp or vista?

/michael

why pay for software?

DVD images freeze at certain points or playback becomes choppy


sounds like you will need to clean laser, there are cleaners you can buy out of walmart for this. Don't know if they work well, I take mine apart and use soft cloth and alcohol then letting dry, works fine for me.

Movie skips and freezes during play


CD and dvd disc cleaners will not solve the problem, a deeper and delicate cleaning procedure by cleaning the lens manually with an cotton swab is needed...
Although the quality of newer discs is to be discussed.
