Try using a cleaner on the drive, as the laser lens may be dirty,as their is less data on a cd it has more time to read it ,a dvd has almost 6+ times as much, so i believe much harder to read.

good luck

You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement.
To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.

If there's no problem with your internet connection speed, updating the flash player and quicktime will fix it.
Click here to download the latest Adobe Flash Player, open the link, download and install it. Restart the browser and try again.
(the latest version is adobe flash player 10, if it's already installed, uninstall and reinstall the version 9.0)
Click here to download Quicktime Player.

It's also important to restart your computer after you are done installing.


Clear all the temporary internet files, caches, cookies after closing the browser and try again. To clear the temporary internet files, cookies etc.. go to control panel open the "Internet Options" click the "Delete" button on the general tab, confirm it and restart your computer. Now try playing the youtube videos again.

The most common issue is the internet connection speed and the system configuration.


Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Choppy sound and video on laptop


Unfortunately your video card memory is probably lacking. And/or your settings are set too high for your processor to handle. Right click on your desktop, goto properties, goto settings, and select for best perfomance then apply.

CD's play simple audio files. DVD's and games play large video files and large audio files that are choppy on older systems. you may need to upgrade your memory. Make sure you delete all you dont use, run disk cleanup. REstart. Run, disk defrag, Restart.

A good test is goto : www.belarc.com or belarcadvisor.com

They will tell you if yoursystem is uptodate.

Good luck!

You may just be running a older processor?

DVD playback is warbling


Have you tried viewing in a different software, as i found that acer use a form of Power DVD as their standard movie player which comes installed with the system. Try viewing in media player for example.
