You probably have too many applications running on your system;try the following:

1.close all applications,try to run only the video application;if no improvement,goto the next stage:
2.run a system maintenance utiility like advanced system care 3 ,ccleaner or glary utility,to clean your system;by the way,may i ask how much memory is on your system?to find out,click on start,go to control panel,click on system;wait a while,the necessary information will appear.please let me have that;also what anti-virus are you using?may i have that information too?

My system shows a blue screen


What kind of blue screen? Do you mean it gives you a blue screen then your computer restarts or is your media playing software only displaying a blue screen?

If the latter then it will be due to codecs you need to install, what media playing software are you using?
VLC Media Player will play almost anything without having to mess around with codecs for programs such as Windows Media Player

My acer laptop was formated, since I got it back I cant play any dvd nor cd... I do have media player but message appear stating that the following files cant be played..


Yes, you have missed the codec files.

Download "Windows essentials Codec pack", below is the link

http://download.softpedia.ro/dl/7dd4bba62e0c22582981d1a9546796dc/4b45cc15/100071211/software/MULTIMEDIA/VIDEO/DIVX/WECPSetup.exe

Install this, you will be able to play almost all files in your windows media player.

I recommend you use VLC player, it can play any file formats both Audio or Video without any Codec and moreover it's completely open source. Below is the VLC player download link

That's it

Has my Acer Aspire T180-R97Z got DVD burning facilities? It can play DVD's. Thank you, Susan-Jane.


Yes, it has. You can't view DVD's because for that you need specialized codecs or media players. 
To view DVD's install VLC -   http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
To burn dvd disks that can be played on a regular dvd player you need to programs: one to convert your video file - i use

-  to the dvd format and any burning software - i use

Youtube not playing anything!


Probably you have installed any software recently that interrupts playing the video. May be that software just misconfigured "Flash" which is used for playing videos in YouTube.

Check if it solves the problem by reinstalling Flash.

Actually this is a problem of the video codec and you need o install some software that will solve your problem completely.

Download :
1) VLC Media Player :

Compatibility issue?


You probably don't need this program here:

The Acer Empowering Technology Framework

Remove it if you can. Windows Security Center has a built in firewall to it. If you don't see you may have to reinstall service pack 2.

Find out what your default media player is. You might want to make it Windows Media for now. Theres a Set program access defaults in the add/remove program section.

You probably do have a corrupted update file with service pack 2. You should remove service pack 3 and 2 using the add/remove programs, then reload them.

Service Pack 2 was the update for Windows XP that released the Windows security software. Some computers have had trouble getting it to download and install on the first attempt.
