Hi,

From the description of the problem, it seems that the Windows Media player has been assigned a shortcut key or the Media key on the laptop is accidentally getting pressed.

You can remove the Windows Media Player from the Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

When you open the "Add or Remove Programs" menu, Windows Media Player will be listed as "Windows Media Player 11". Click on the Remove button to uninstall it.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa

When I play DVDs on my HP Pavillion dv5220, the sound and picture lag even when using different DVD playing programs. Why is the DVD stuttering, and what can I do to fix it?


Try using a third party program like WinDVD or InterVideo. You can get free downloads of a lot of them, and HP has never had the best record for player technology so they can use all the help they can get!

How to turn on the speakers on an HP Pavillion dv7 laptop


Go to your control panel and click the "find and fix problems2 link under SYSTEM and SECURITY then select the trouble shoot audio playback. Click next wait for it to search then select speakers and click next this should fix your issue.
Alternatively the volume setting for one or more sound devices might be disabled or set too low. There are separate sound controls for the hardware devices (speakers / head sets) and the individual applications (Windows sound / QuickPlay / Windows Media Player). For example, if the speaker is turned on, but the application is muted, you will not hear any sound. open the sound volume mixer and check the different settings

I have used my up all my regions on my HP Pavillion laptop it has a pioneer dvd player in it. How do I get it to unlock and play all DVDs forever?


You can use VLC Media Player, a free program that can be downloaded from http://www.videolan.org .

This program ignores the region codes of your DVDs and can play any disc.

I hope that you find this information helpful.

HP Pavillion not reading audio CD


It is possible that this is a drive issue, I've seen drives that one of the optical reader device has gone out, but generally it'e the DVD reader and will only read CD's. It's very rare that the CD reader goes and the DVD reader works. Before you replace drive, if it's only music CD's (you didn't mention program CD's), then update your media player. If it still won't play, then unistall the media player and completely reload it. At this point you can replacse the drive.
