Question about Intervideo WinDVD 5 for PC

1 Answer

Intervideo WinDVD5 I recently bought a brand new Thinkpad (12/6/2007). I have been trying to resolve the DVD problem through IBM's partner locally with no luck and I really can't have my laptop shipped to IBM for repairs at this time. . .my problem since 12/2007 is I keep getting audio but a black screen with a green box in the upper left corner of the screen when I try to play a DVD. I thought it was the subtitles that caused it. . . I am hearing-impaired, so I took the subtitles off and same problem. I am using a Thinkpad R61i Windows XP, IE7. I have also searched the Intervideo/Corel website to no avail. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks

    THANKS so much kecik! The problem is occurring with some DVDs. I will check the settings on winDVD and see it fixes the problem. If it is still happening, I will download VLC player and try that one out. Again, thanks so much for your response.

    I have an IBM ThinkPad T400 with WinDVD 5 installed on it. Every DVD I try gives me the same result - audio but a blank screen. I've searched the WWW and WinDVD 5 is practically obsolete now. I cannot upgrade nor can I install a different application / utility (this problem affects 1500 laptop users), does anyone know if there are codecs available for WinDVD 5?



    Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    The color is degraded - in cases turning the resulting DVD as almost black and white and the yellow in subtitles is way off to a side of the subtitling

Did you try with some types of DVDs? If with all are the same result, it might be the setting or there is real a problem with the player software.
I m not so familiar with winDVD.
Try to download and use this VLC player:

The InterVideo WinDVD 5 program on my laptop not working!


Maybe your CD/DVD drive is a old drive :O( , for the new cd´s/DVD´s on the marked today actually many times you need a new drive for read them. Try first if you can install with the dll found on the link below.

You can find "wnaspi32.dll'' here : http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?wnaspi32

Ohter solutions:
1: get a external drive(not to old) and try install it with that
2: copy the cd to a usb storage on a computer thats have a new cd/dvd drive, use the usb storage to install it on your computer, use the dll file from the link.
Hope this can resolve the problem.

My IBM 600 thinkpad will not boot up How can I fix it? when I turn it on nothing at all hapens.


Try swapping / reseatting the memory

Booting without the battery / hard drive / and dvd drive.

If that doesn't work, there isn't much you can do besides having a local tech look at the machine.

They'll probably say, bad motherboard. In which case it's time for a new laptop!

IBM thinkpad x31 w/ultrabay 2000 blu-ray drive question


If the bay is a DVD drive Blue Ray will work as long as you have a newer DVD decoding software. There are some decoders or codecs at IBM's support site, such as WinVid. If the codecs at IBM do not work with Blue Ray, then try download.com and search for DVD playing software.

Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck
