Try another Media Player, it may be the File Format. Try this freeware Media Player, VLC, 32 or 64bit?, found here along with Real Player Media Player: http://www.filehippo.com/download_vlc_32/ You can find many freeware/shareware programs here: http://www.filehippo.com/

SOURCE: COMPAQ PRESARIO DVD ROM NOT READING ANY CD AND DVD PLS HELP

It sounds like you need to replace the DVD Rom itself.
They do go bad without warning.
A DVD Rom is not that expensive and should take about 5 min to replace rather easy job.
Happy Holidays

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Compaq Presario CQ56 & the scroll

The scroll pad on the touch pad needs a particular driver Synaptics Pointing Device Driver. This will actually run at the startup after installed which will activate the functionality of scroll on the touch pad. You can also actually turn this function on and off so this is a friendly user.
If you do not have that driver that comes with your laptop you can go here:

or here

Good day.

It seems you don't have any codecs... The problem is not in windows media player.
Just install a codec pack like http://www.free-codecs.com/download/codec_pack_all_in_1.htm

Hope to solve your problem.

My media player want play dvd's


Maybe your screen resolution needs to be higher? What type of error message are you getting? Are these dvd's that you were able to play before?

Most computers will have problems playing dvd's that someone made for you on their computer. Try a store purchased dvd and see if it plays.

You can always reinstall windows media player at Microsoft's site below.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/windows-media-player

You can also try the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve a lot of issues that Media Player could not fix.

Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

Dvd on cq62-225nr will not play


First make sure your drive will handle DvD's. Click Start/My Computer and see if a DvD drive is listed. If you have a DvD then some drives will not handle bootleg (made by some individual) DvDs. Try a store purchased dvd and see if it reads it ok. Also, there are some formats your software may not be able to handle.

If you are using Windows Media Player as your dvd player it has problems reading some formats. Go to www.google.com and in the search type: "download vlc player" (without the quotes). Download VideoLan from the site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it, it can handle just about any format. It's totally FREE. Oh, and it doesn't take 15 or 20 minutes to install like Media Player. It'll be up and running in less than 3 minutes.

Will not play dvds


LOL, wow that's an oddity, normally it's the other way around where it plays store bought but not burned. Make sure you are not trying to play Blue Ray in a Regular DvD Player.

Oh, one more real important point. If you're using Windows Media Player as the player, that might be your problem. Media Player cannot handle all types of media devices and sometimes they don't give you a message saying anything because it just don't recognize a disc is even in the drive.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "Download VLC Player" (without the quotes). Look for the site www.videolan.org/vlc in the search results and click it. That's where you want to download it from. VLC is an open source player that will play any type of video format. It is far greater than Windows Media Player. It installs in less than 3 minutes and it is fast and smooth. You'll love it. After you install it put your cd in the drive and you will probably be prompted as to which player to play it with. Click VLC. If VLC is not shown as one of the listed players chose the option to browse to chose it. Now after all this, if you still can't play the dvd, then your drive is faulty.
