Question about Dell Inspiron 2650 Notebook
Its seems even other players players(windows media player and vlc media player) that i installed on it dont also player videos
You can go to dell site. Click support then click home under support. It will ask you for a tag number. Enter Service Tag number under your Dell Laptop. There is a sticker under your Laptop which has service Tag if not visible then you can go to BIOS settings and find it on the 1st page. Enter that tag number. Find VIDEO drivers for your Operating System, I assume its XP. Another issue is, this Laptop has very old and basic config. How much RAM do you have? How much HDD space you have left? Please give info. VLC should play any format. If it doesnt as you said means Hardware is not supporting. I guess its just drivers.

You should call DELL. I think the display card is part of the mother board on your computer. In this case, you cannot change it. In some models you can add some memory to the display card, but this may not make the card faster. Higher amounts of memory allows for more resolution and colours.

This sounds like a driver or software issue. Check Dell's support site for any projector related drivers or software, and also check the projector manufacturer's site for drivers or software. You might also look for any Windows media player updates.

doesn't sound like hardware failure.
resource check: make sure you have at least 1GB of free space on your hard drive. Close all other programs to free up as much RAM as possible. See if that helps the Issue.... sometime that system just can't allocate enough resources to a task for it to ever complete. If this helps then it's time to do some house cleaning. Best practive is to keep at least 20% of your hardrive empty so it may be time to let go of some stuff. A large amount of installed unused programs can also be an issue especially if they are set to automatically start at logon. remove unused programs highly recommended.
Assuming none of that helps here is what I would do to focus on getting media player operational
recommended steps to solve problem:
1. open media player and under the HELP drop down select the check for updates option
2. If there are updates install them and see if that resolves the issue... (try a reboot if it doesn't work after it's updated)
note: if it only happens with some CDs and not others then the issue may be with specific CODECs which are instructions for the player to be able to understand the media format. If these are not standard/ Titled US or European DVDs produced by the movie companies then this could be your issue. there should be an error telling you that it couldn't play the file.
3. download a new version of windows media player.. just google "windows media player download". Don't install it yet just download the installation file to your hard drive.
4. open the CONTROL PANEL from the START menu and select ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS
5. Select REMOVE A PROGRAM if your using one of the newer interfaces...not necessary in classic view.
6. Select ADD OR REMOVE WINDOWS COMPONENTS... its one of the big button options on the left side.
7. find WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER in the list and uncheck it.
8. hit FINISH or NEXT or OK whatever the option at that point is and agree to making the changes.
9. Reboot the machine once it is unistalled if it doesn't already ask you to do so
10. Logon and open MY COMPUTER and locate the new installation file you downloaded in step3
11. Double click the file to initiate the installation... just accept all the defaults by click yes and I agree and Ok and FINISH until it is done.
12. Reboot once again
13. logon and give it a shot.
hope this helps!

Please try to update your codec in your Windows Media Player to ensure that the Windows Media Player will read the data in the Disk. Also you can download different types of player that has bundled with complete codec. Please try to download K-Lite Codec Pack Player or VLC Player.
Please select the version of your player that supports your current operating system. Then Begin to download nyh clicking the download link or button.
