Change from region 1 to region 2

I've switched a few times from 2 to 1 and vice versa.
Now I can't switch anymore and windows tells me it's impossible to change once more!?

    You can only do it five times I think.

    If you're lucky you can unlock yours depending on what model it is.

    What is the exact model of your drive?

I don't believe your drive is supported. You can try using a program called dvd43

I've never used it before but that might be a good workaround.

Let me know.

Best of luck!

The dimmer switch on my 1999 firebird won't change the headlights from dim to bright, or vice versa. It has a good click to it and the blue light in the dash comes on when they're supposed to

That is a common problem, the switch needs changing if the high and low beams do work, the only problem is that it's an expensive part to replace, try a local wrecking yard they should have a bunch of suitable replacements at a reduced price.

The video is not appearing but the sound is ok. so what will i do?

i had the same problem with my laptop your laptop will only probally play region 1 dvd and your dvd disc is region 2 if your in europe or uk (or vice versa) when you insert your dvd in your laptop you should get a screen up telling you to change to region 2 to comply with your region click ok and then you will get picture as well as sound,
check what region your dvd's are first this info is on the back cover/case with either number 1 or 2 this is the region code.

My '' and @ keys are switched on Acer aspire 5732 Z laptop

This could be a problem with the Language / Keyboard Language, try setting a different language in Regional Options -> Keyboard Language and switch to another one from here.

The @ and '' are reversed on keyboard

This is because your machine is made in US while your keyboard settings under Windows are UK. Please switch keyboard layout under Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Keyboards and Languages > Change Keyboards.
Add the US keyboard and make it default. Your keys will now match the input.

Fix front side left power window on 99 montana

The left power window switch tends to get bad contacts and stop working. You can simply pull out the switch trims (there is a clip at the pointy part of the trim, start prying there) and change the switch. 95% of the time the switch is the problem but if you want to be shure , check youre positive and ground at the switch, then take off the door trim, find the two wires that feed the window motor and with a fused wire (20 or 30 amps) and a battery, feed them a positive on one side and a ground on the other and vice versa. if the window move and power and ground are ok, switch is falty.

The display screen is rolling and is in black and white.


You switched to PAL mode from NTSC or vice versa. Most DVDs will only output PAL or NTSC, not both. So even if the disc is region ffree, the fact that it's encoded in PAL (50hz) makes it appear like you describe - no vertical hold / black and white.

Some set top players [Apex, Phillips] will convert PAL to NTSC on the fly or vice versa.

Remember, PAL/NTSC is not the same as Region.

Here's some detailed info:

You can convert the DVD to NTSC, and strip the region code by following


[This is very time consuming.]


What DVD

Most players are either NTSC or PAL, however increasingly DVD players from the Far East (Apex, Phillips etc)

, which is 50hz instead of 60hz, hence the lack of vertical hold
