Did you install the driver of your motherboard?if so,you need to download and install the dvd decoder for your media from the manufacturers site. if you cannot play even cd, the problem is in your dvd drive.if your dvd drive comes with a driver then you have to install it.actually there are more solutions to your problem try follow the solution I've mention first,and if its still not working post your reply and i will give you another solution.

Some computers do not come with dvd software installed.Do you have a dvd drive installed?If no software for dvd installed you can also use windows media player or realplayer to play dvds.Click start button,control panel then autoplay.Under dvd movie choose player you like to use and click save.Try inserting dvd again to check for playback.

Dell Inspiron 530s/531s desktop, Win. Xp home...Windows stops responding at the ''Loading Personal Settings'' cannot boot in safe mode.


try to boot in "Last good known configuration settings" by restarting your pc and then press F8 before windows appear and then select the boot option i mention above. if this not work since you said that it can't boot to safe mode, your other option is to repair the windows or else reformat it. when you repair the windows you must have windows xp home edition cd installer, you load it to your cd/dvd rom and then restart your pc and press F2 or DEL button before windows appear in order to go to setup bios settings. in bios settings, you choose boot order setup and setup first priority to cd/dvd and press F10 by saving the changes and then press any key when you see the prompt so that it can boot up to windows xp home cd installer and then follow screen instruction that you arrive to windows repair option.
