Computer does not want to play a video. is asking for a DVD decoder.


Certain software that plays media require a DVD decoder that you can purchase. You can also go to www.snapfiles.com, look at the freeware tab and you may be able to find a DVD player program that will play your DVD.

My computer doesnot produce sound when iam playing music


Firstly check your device manager to assure that all drivers are installed properly, If there are no errors in your device manager
then move to the secend step,
I am assuming that your problem is with DVD playback?
DVD's require a software decoder which unfortunately for some reason have been neglected in the operating system, There are free decoders available if you do an online search for "free DVD Decoder download"
If none of these things remedies your problem let me know, I will reply as soon as I can.

Dvds wont play on pc


You can install another DVD player software.
there are plenty of free players on the internet that you can download, or you can buy one at your local software dealer. Once you install this, the newer video codecs should be installed

My computer wont let me watch movies now. it keeps saying something about my dvd decoder wasnt installed.


if you bought the computer new or the DVD drive new , you whould have got a CD with it , most probably with something like WinDVD or something , if you have the specific CD with DVD software on it install it , as it will enable you to watch DVD's using Windows media player etc..

if you bought the computer second hand etc.. and or cant find the cd's a free solution is to download VLC media player (Download here) the only disadvantage about using this free solution is that you will have to play the DVD's through VLC you wont be able to use windows media player etc. to play DVD's as VLC does not require decoder software to play DVD's

otherwise you can purchase software such as WinDVD and this will enable you to play using your media player of choice.

Thanks!
