My Acer Aspire 6920G does not detect nor play bluray discs after switching to Windows 7. I may be missing drivers but have no clue what and where to get them. Please help.

Hi goodevening

there so so many reason why does not detect a blueray disc after you switching windows 7
1st may be your cd/dvd driver have a problem,
(solution) try to use other cd/dvd driver
2nd may be the window 7 installer you've use have a missing file.
(solution) try to re install the o.s but dont use the same cd you've use try other installer.
3rd your blueray disc is the problem
(solution) use your blue ray disc in other p.c window xp if running in xp try to use other pc using a window 7, if running in other unit may be your pc need to upgrade.

Blu-ray drivers for windows 7


Windows 7 by default has blue-ray support so there is no use of the drivers. If you are playing a movie, then You need to install the codec’s for Blu-Ray. Your Blu-ray drive should have came with media containing the codec’s. You can also use your favorite search engine and search for free Blu-ray codec’s.
You can install Power DVD 9 which install a codec for Blu-ray drive.

Hope this helps you, please check out.

New year Regards.

Hello, Anybody Please help me! I just bought compaq laptop with preinstalled Xp. I want to use Xp and because of some problem in existing XP, I would like to re-install XP professional. When I put CD and...

Serial ATA (SATA) drives are the latest in the hard drive fashion and, in theory, installing Windows on the drive should prove relatively simple. The problem is that Windows XP doesn’t contain the necessary drivers to allow windows to see the drive so that Windows can install it.

I found the procedure below on an XP support website. I have not tried this procedure but after reviewing I fairly certain this should work for you.

1/ Copy the SATA drivers (these can usually be found on your pc or motherboard's support disk. Usually these consist of PIDE/SATA Folders and TXTsetup.oem files. Alternatively they may have been supplied on a separate CD that accompanied your SATA drive, assuming you purchased it separately from the pc.)
2/ Insert the Windows XP CD (full retail version – you should not need to follow these instructions if your pc came with a recovery disk) into the CD-ROM and Reboot your PC
3/ Watch carefully as the Windows XP installation progresses and look carefully at the text at the bottom of each screen.
4/ At the Windows Setup Screen (this should be the second screen after installation starts) you should see, at the bottom of the screen) a message saying “Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver.”
5/ At this point press the F6 button
6/ When the next screen appears press S to specify an additional device
7/ Now insert the floppy disk containing the SATA drivers into your floppy drive
8/ Windows will next ask you to select a driver from the provided list
9/ Select VIA Serial (or whichever controller your motherboard supports) ATA RAID Controller (Windows XP)
10/ The SATA drivers on your floppy disk should now load
11/ After the drivers have loaded Windows XP will recognise your SATA hard drive and you can continue installing the Windows XP operating system

Driver problem

Which Operating system did you had installed in your computer before installing windows XP?
Could be thatb the installation of windows XP was not proper or the drivers for the DVD drive are missing after installation. But to help you would need to know which operating system did you had installed before.

Hi there
Is this problem with windows media player only or with rest players also.
You try to repair your media player using your XP installation CD and then install a good codec pack such as XP codec pack or K-Lite codec pack.These are available for free .
Hope this works for you.

Waiting for your thanks.

Too slow

the only way to improve graphics is to upgrade your graphics card and ensure that you have enough system memory and proccesor power to run the game as it should do. If you have a 32MB or 64MB card then maybe you should go for atleast 128MB
