there seems to be a problem with the microprocessor in the motherboard therefore it will be more appropriate to replace the entire motherboard, precisely a universal motherboard and thereafter the same will require programming

SIR: i WISH TOINSTALL TWO HARDDISKS. The motherbord has only one socket for a primary. Where do I connect my dvd player? Thank you very much:

You need a cable with 3 connections.
1 for the motherboard... one for the hard drive and the 3rd for your dvd.
set the jumper on your hard drive to "cable select" ( it's probably there already)
set the jumper on the dvd to "slave"
Don't forget to go into the BIOS and activate the Primary port's second address and set it to auto detect. If auto detect doesn't work set it to cd

Cant play dvd in my computer

All you need is the MPEG-2 codec.

Download and install VLC Player. It includes MPEG-2 (and many, many other codecs). The program itself is free and works great.

I suggest you give the actual player a try. It's way better than WMP. If you decide you don't like it, just leave it installed. WMP can use the codec that VLC comes with to play DVD's.

Does not read disc bad disc error

Hi there,
if your player does that with every disc then there's something wrong with its motherboard. Try cleaning it with a CD cleaner which you can purchase at the store. let me know if this works.
