From Hp knowledge base:
Most DVDs include regional codes that are embedded into the disc data. These codes prevent DVD movies from being played in regions of the world that are different from where they are sold. If you get a Region Code error, you are trying to play a DVD from a region that is different than the one your drive is currently set for. The region of your drive may be set a maximum of five times, after that the region becomes fixed. Since the region code is stored on your DVD drive, reinstalling the software or recovering your hard disk will not affect the region setting. To change this setting, follow these steps:

2.under Hardware tab,select your DVD and again click properties button below.
3.Here you endup at DVD properties windows, go to DVD Region tab,from here you can change your region by selecting country and click ok.
