Hoe do i make my acer aspire 5315 laptop region free


To change the Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

Dvd player will not play, DVD from the UK


You could use a program meant to dupe, or change, your DVD-ROM's region code. These are independent, third-party programs so don't trust everything you see. Read reviews; a simple Google search can aid you with that. "Change DVD Region"

Alternatively, you could possibly change the DVD region of your drive from within Windows. If you opt to do this (if you can), the region will need to be changed back for viewing US DVDs.

These instructions are for XP. For Vista, it shouldn't be too different.
-Go into DEVICE MANAGER double-click on your DVD drive (likely "D:") under the DVD/CD DEVICES tree
-The third tab of the Properties window should be DVD REGION
-Voila!

If you need to know how to get to DEVICE MANAGER:
-START menu --> CONTROL PANEL--> SYSTEM
-The HARDWARE tab has a link to the DEVICE MANAGER

My Acer Aspire 5315 does not play DVD films.


Hi,
to play dvd films, ensure your laptop has a media-player installed. i.e windows media player 9-10-11 et,c. also you could check in My computer/control Panel/system/device manager to see if there any yellow exclamation marks, next to any devices. if there are. you,ll need to re-install drivers for the device.

if this solves your problem, please rate as fixya.

thankyou for using the forum.

Need to unlock laptop DVD


You can change the region code for your DVD player but not more than 4 times.
There are firnware updates to change DVDs to region free, if you are not carefull you can screw up your DVD drive.
Suggest you install a program to allow you to play any DVDs regardless of which region the DVDs were created for.
Go to www.dvdidle.com for their Region-Free program

Region code for acer aspire 5715z


I am affraid you cannot. You are only allowed to change the region code four or five times depending on the make of the player. Once you have made the last change it is set into what is known as the firmware of the player itself and cannot be undone.
I have known people do what is known as a firmware updtae and even that doesn't reset it.
I am from the UK and live in the Caribbean and for this very reason I have two DVD players for my Toshiba laptop which I change out depending on where I am.
You could try buying an external DVD player that works via USB, the only draw back with these is the USB connection sometimes isn't quite fast enough and you sometimes get a little stuttering during the film.
If you do decide to buy an external remember you will only be allowed to change the region of that four or five times as well.

Hi i want to unlock my laptop to any region, can you help


PC DVD drives can have the region code changed 5 times only.
Whatever region you set it to on the last available change will be the units permanent region from then on!!!

Any hardware modification to the unit to 'unlock' it is a violation of many countries laws and absolutely unlawful in the U.S..

The region codes are there to protect the copyrights of the media producers and ensure the units proper operation with inserted media.
