Since April 22, 2008; Computer will not play DVD's

My computer has ceased to play DVD's. I have a Compaq Presario w/ vista home software. It had been playing DVD's alright, but suddenly when I inserted a DVD it would not play. What might be the problem?

    When you click start with vista you do not have a run command. Should I click "help support"?

    press start -> run -> and type in services.msc -> on the right side of the list. Look for shell hardware detection.



    right click on it and select start.



    if it doesnt start click on properties and make sure the startup is set on automatic

Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds


See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

I have a compaq presario 5000 and it does not play dvd movies. Why not?


You may have a DVD drive in your laptop, but you'll need to have the codec to play DVD movies. You can find DVD playing software on the internet. If you have a DVD burning software like Nero sometimes they come with software to play movies. Google DVD codec and a bunch will come up,

My CD/DVD Drive has sudenly stopped working.In the devive manager the code error is 10. The model of the computer is GM5066B and the serial no. GSG7211000075. Same problem on a Compaq Presario SR5213 with...


Things to check
1. See if the drive is identified properly in BIOS, if it is not, reseat all cables and try agian.
2. Can you boot to the drive using a bootable CD (XP CD or such) If the drive functions outside Windows, then it is a software issue. If it doesn't boot to bootable media, then you most likely have a hardware issue.
If you can boot to the CD, then try booting to the safe mode, removing the drive from device manager then remove the upper/lower filters in the registry then reboot in to the normal mode.

Uninstall


Well yes and no. I believe you're asking if you can remove vista to install xp? It is possible to do so however HP/Compaq use a proprietary software to "tattoo" the motherboard which designates the unit as either a Vista computer or Other OS computer. Though it is possible to install and run XP on a Vista machine, complications may arise causing things like the OS to not properly validate and other software related issues.

Laptops are usless for playing games. They may play some low quality games but there is really nothing you can do to upgrade a laptop to make it suitable for playing games. If you are planning on playing PC Games, buy a good Desktop Computer.
