My Toshiba Laptop won't turn on

I turned my laptop on because I wanted to watch Dvds on it. I put a normal Dvd disc in it, and opened Windows Media Player. It just went frozen. Then I minimised it and opened up another Dvd Program called Power Play. This had the same problem. It was frozen for about 5 minutes. Then I pressed the off button and it took for ages to turn off. I continued pressing the Power button, but the blue light kept on showing, and the fan was still going. I decided to leave it alone. After 45 minutes I came back, and the light and sound was gone. So when I tried to turn it back on, it wouldn't even start again. Please help!!

    No I think the programs are alrite. It's my laptop. It won't start again. There is only one power button, there is no restarter. It simply won't turn on. I think the solution is something to do with the inside.. will you be able to suggest a way or would it be better to take it to Computer Services to take a look at it.

    Thanks anyways

    When laptop is turned on, once Windows XP starts to load, a message appears on a DOS type background saying "Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this. If your computer stopped responding, restared unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked (None of these circumstances applied)



    If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure, or becuase the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.



    Safe Mode

    Safe Mode with Networking

    Safe Mode with Command Prompt



    Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)



    Start Windows Normally



    None of these options has resolved the problem

Toshiba laptop should come with a Windows media (DVD disc). You can use it to fix this booting problem (it will fix the problem automatically if it boots up using the Windows DVD disc).

Why is it that sometimes I can watch DVDs on Windows Media Player and sometimes not?


Some movies are encoded with a protection the Disc acts as if you are tempting to copy the write protected dvd. you can get a program for free called shrink dvd that will remove the protection and copy the movie to your Pc so you can watch it.

Windows 8 won't play rental dvd


It may seem obvious, but to many it is not. To many new notebook computer owners, it is not as easy as it looks to play DVDs in their new Acer laptops. In my line of work, I get this question frequently. So here are a few quick, simple steps to get you on your way to be able to play DVDs in Acer laptops.

Check to see if your Acer laptop has the capability to play DVDs. It will be branded with the familiar white DVD logo on the outside of the drive. This is located directly side of the laptop and has a button on the DVD drive. If it is not adorned with the DVD logo, you will be limited to only playing CDs. Push the button on your Acer once you have located the DVD drive with the logo. This creates a springing motion to eject the DVD drive. Place any DVD face up in the tray and gently push it back into your Acer laptop and then wait for it to start automatically or for a menu to appear. If the DVD in your Acer laptop will not start automatically, (or when you see the menu of choices) you will need to set it up to play automatically. In Microsoft Windows, click start, control panel, hardware and sound and then select autoplay. If you have Windows Vista Home Basic Edition, Windows Media and Real Player may not play the DVDs correctly. You may want to download a free media player from download.com. http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html Place a tick in either windows software or the all software box on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: Media Player you might have to try a few times to get it right You will then have to manually play the DVDs each time. Choose the action you wish Windows to perform each time you play a DVD on the acer laptop(from the dropdown menu). You will have at least two media players to choose from, or you can simply choose "take no action" which is good if you are not using the media player choices in that menu. Eject the DVD and reinsert it into your Acer laptop. All your DVDs should now play successfully with your chosen media player each time. Locate the controls on the bottom of your screen. They are standard DVD controls as well as a counter should you need to adjust volume or pause the DVD. You can press F11 for full screen view if you no longer need controls and are ready to watch your DVD.

How to burn a dvd from an acer laptop


The laptop should have come with CD/DVD burning software preloaded. Acer's specs page for your model says it comes with NTI Media Maker. The program will have help information available to guide you through, and you can find more help online. If you just want to write data files onto a DVD, the process typically is not much more than dragging files to a layout window and telling the program to burn the disc. This gives you a way to back up data, or to store movies in formats you can view on a computer (AVI, MPG, etc.).

On the other hand, if you're asking how to make a video DVD that will play in a regular DVD player like a commercial movie, maybe with features like menus or scene selection and such, the process for making that kind of DVD is more involved. You need some DVD authoring software. NTI may offer that capability, but I'll admit I have never looked.

In most cases, the software that comes preloaded on computers is a limited version of some commercial product. The computer manufacturers get paid to include the program, and the software company hopes you'll buy the full version when you discover the limitations. If you don't want to pay for software, there are free, more full-featured programs available for downloading.

For general CD and DVD burning, I use CDBurnerXP. To make video DVDs, I use a program called DVDStyler. Both are open-source, meaning they are 100% free to download and use, and they both offer a lot of features.

Toshiba dvd rom sd r6012 isn't reading the DVDs


Try some factory CD and DVDs and just try to get them to open in Windows (not play in a media player program). If you get errors on every disc you try, it may be your CD/DVD hardware packing in.

If it reads some CDs or DVDs and not others, particularly media discs, you may be having software driver problems, otherwise, it is likely hardware.

Try inserting the disc and spinning it up while resting the laptop on its side, or even upside down. If it reads sideways or upside down, the CD/DVD reader hardware has gone and cannot probably be prepared (this is a symptom of physical controller failure and is ot fixable by normal means).

Good luck...
