I got a lap dell that dont play should how can i get that installed for free striaght to my laptop


Don't play what? Games? Movies? If you mean movies, you can try Artisan DVD player. This will only play DVD movies if your laptop has a DVD-rom. If you only have a cd-rom, no software will help you play a DVD movie. You can get the software free here:

When you insert a DVD the drive is not reconized cant watch movies or play cds. On my DELL Inspiron


Recommend you go under Control Panel settings and look at System Settings and Devices tab. Look at the hardware list and verify there is no issue with drivers for the DVD drive (should be flagged if there is issue). May need to reinstall or get updated drivers possibly if hardware recognized, but not functioning.

Cd rom problem


Try to play different cds from your dvd rom drive.
If all of them does play then i suspected the cd that you had inserted to play is faulty.

If all of the cds doesn't work, re-install your dvd rom driver. If it doesn't still read any cds then your dvd rom drive is faulty.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

Dvds won't play properly and sound isn't right


Sounds like you may have an issue with it reading discs. It can probably play CDs fine because it's fast enough to buffer ahead of it since an audio CD isn't very much data compared to a DVD. Try cleaning the laser lens with a dry paper towel first (not moist or a dusty kleenex). If that doesn't seem to clean it, or you have visible smears or smudges on it, you may want to try a very very moist (barely the next level above dry) paper towel, then try it immediately.

If that doesn't solve the problem, try different DVD software (VLC Media Player, perhaps) or try a different DVD if you haven't already.

Cannot play dvds as drivers lost when changing from vista to xp home.when enter dvd it says dvd decoder and drives lost


If you are running XP, you will need to install a DVD playback application. IN VIsta, DVD playback is native to WIndows, in XP, Dell used a program called Cyberlink PowerDVD. You can either buy PowerDVD on line or download a free DVD playback application from places like Download.com. I've had good luck with the AVS DVD player here:

http://www.download.com/AVS-DVD-Player/3000-7970_4-10491860.html?cdlPid=10669161

If you just installed XP on this system, it is also important that all the drivers are installed and in the correct order. Dell's preferred order is:

Notebook System Software
Chipset Utility
Video Driver
Sound Driver
Modem Driver
Network Driver
Wireless Driver
Touchpad Driver
Quickset Utility

Drivers are available here:

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.
