Question about Acer PC Desktops

1 Answer

I own an Acer Aspire 5050 Laptop. My problem is that until about a fortnight ago i could easily watch DVDs on Windows media player and media centre. It now seems to be the case that all DVDs that i watch are slow and the fps seem well under normal range (about 13). I've checked DMA is on but i'm lost for ideas

Cd rom not working error code 19 acording to device manager .this is on acer aspie x3200. it will not run a dvd or cd on windows media player . have set all defaults to windows media player


To run a dvd on windows media player you need the corect codec, it is better to use "power dvd" or somethign to watch dvds. For the cd drive not working, this error code means it is not been reconized. Try doing the following. goto control panel and system, then goto device manager, uninstall the cdrom drivers and restart pc, maybe this will clear the conflict. Here is also a link to a fix programme by microsoft that will try fix your cdrom for you. click here

follow the instrsuctions and it will clear your regsteries and all for you, hope this helps

No sound when playing dvds


This is very likely a codec problem. A codec is a software component used with video and audio players that translates the electronic media file into something that can be displayed. Most of the time, the video codec will be out of date and you'll hear the audio but not see any video. You've got the reverse problem, obviously.

Unfortunately, Microsoft does not make this easy. Even the latest download of codecs from Microsoft doesn't necessarily update the Windows Media Player to play any DVD. You will need to do a codec search and download the latest. Last time I checked, 'download.com' had them available (this is CNet's download website). Good luck!

How do i set up an Acer Aspire 9920g Laptop to recive TV


there should be a wizard in windows media centre to connect to a reciever but thats normally only with a tv card, using a usb will not open through media centre you will have to use the software provided.

Obviously you will also need an aerial connection to a programme source
