Question about HP Pavilion zv6233NR Notebook

1 Answer

Freezes when trying to play DVD's

Hey guys/gals, I have the Pavillion zv6233nr notebook and it has worked fine until the last 2 months. When I insert a DVD into the drive the computer pops up the window with a list of icons and asks which one to use, it used too just automattically play dvd's back. When that window pops up the icons are less detailed than normal and include no text, also my mouse is sluggish at responding and i eventually eject the disk, after the dvd(any dvd movie) is removed the mouse speeds up, but the icons start disappearing and reappearing. I also get small windows popping up in the center of the screen usually blank with blank buttons, today one word showed up, "iTunes." Yesterday a window popped up that said I did not have the correct overlay for Hi resolution playback and then it actually played back a random scene from the movie for about 5 seconds and just repeated it, the scene was also upside down on the screen, I have seen all the movies before on my computer so I really am confused why it wont work. The major change in the same time frame was I installed iTunes, but I did not make it the dominant player for dvd's and the people at apple say it has nothing to do with them(I caled the iPhone support line.) if anyone has or had a similar problem and know how to fix it I would appreciate it, I have the maximum ram installed, plus completely updated all software and have never had any other issues, oh yeah if i use an external dvd drive the same issues occur, thanks for your help.

Hello,

Try to remove all your startup and then put the dvd inside then do not auto play it, try to play it manually by going to my computer - right click the dvd/cd drive - then click open - then locate the video file which is the most capacity that has. then play that one. Hope it help

Why my laptop DVD player freezes suddenly while playing, just on some certain CDs or DVDs even the same CDs or DVDs works properly in other laptops and PC?


Seems your laptop DVD player's laser diode lost it's capacity. If it is not that old, try the followings:
1. Blow some air with a watch air blower or an air can. Try the DVD/CD which freezes. If this doesn't work
2. Put a drop of lens cleaner and wipe with caution to the lens. Wait for a few second and try playing the DVD/CD. Don't use force when cleaning the lens. This should be just touch and wipe action.

If this is not the case and the drive is old, you need to replace the drive. This should cost about 30$ to 45$. I did mine last month.
Good luck

My ps3 is freezing


Hey.

I might sound like a stupid solution, but if the PS3 is in a dusty area it sometimes freezes.. Try to vacume clean it.. Also, is your fan on and does it sound ok. It might freeze due to overheating. If it only freezes when you play games on a disc, it might be a problem with the laser reader, which could also be due to dust.

Hope some of it helped.

I have no sound when I play a DVD on HP Pavillion laptop..


This could be a codec issue. Try playing a DVD in VLC just be careful that it does not insert itself as the default player for everything.
