Hello,
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.

    my laptop is a dell inspiron 2650 P4, 512MB RAM, 8MB video card, 1.6GHz processor, with windows 7. it had a CDROM, that i replaced with DVD ROM since it couldn't support DVDs. But the DVD ROM, since i relaced it doesn't read dvds dut t reads CDs and we tested it works properly. What could be the problem ?

  • Donatas Indrisiunas Apr 25, 2014

    i think DVD-ROM dead. Have You data DVD checked? when it reads dvd data (not video DVD), than you need a DVD player software.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron video card

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.

SOURCE: Inspiron 1100 skips when playing media

Hi Beth

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!

SOURCE: Latitude e5400 doesnt want to play dvds. I insert

Hello,

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.

thanks

boot in the safe mode, see if issue still occurs (F8 at boot) if it does, then likely there is a problem with the Video Card or the LCD itself, I'm leaning toward the video card.
Try flashing the bios to current and installing the most current video driver, see if anything changes.

Why does my dell inspiron have trouble loading videos?


Are you having trouble viewing online or streaming videos? If yes, then update your flash player version from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ .
If you have trouble playing videos stored on your computer, update your video drivers and ensure you have proper codecs for playing the video files. You can install the K-lite codec pack, available for free download from http://files.freesoft.ru/mm-mm/K-Lite_Codec_Pack_583_Basic.exe .

Good Luck!

Videos slow start stop skip


Try to check you Video Card Driver software is installed properly and if not then use the Utility disc to install it.
Provided that it will to made your video play faster is install some Video Codec Pack inside.
Check first the Display Adapter were it is installed at Device Manager.

I've a Dell Inspiron 1505 that runs well except it locks up during some videos. The display cracks up and the sound freezes, mouse freezes. Any advice? Is this the video/graphics card? I paid a shop...


if the freezing only happens when playing videos then this is not hard drive issues. try this one, download the latest video driver for you video then remove the old one then install the new video card driver which you just download. if fails try to check and consider the ram issue.

I have a inspiron 2650 laptop i would like to improove the video playing so it dont pause and **** etc


I would recommend more RAM if you have having video issues as your computer is having to do more work than normal as it is a laptop that does not have a great graphics card.

Screen problems!


If you feel safe pulling the top plate just above keyboard and removing the keyboard (marker K) on bottom of computer, thie will expose the video cable unplug and reseat it. sometime will fix the problem but the most likely answer will be your LCD is burning out. 5 out of 6 will be LCD but you could be the 1 that just need a reseat.
