There is no regional code setting for the DVD drives in laptops. This is all handled by the codec or DVD decoding software. You will need different decoding software or software that covers all the regions. I use Power DVD and have had no problems with some DVD's from France and Germany that a Friend of mine likes to watch. Ran into the region problem with home DVD players for his movies. Unfortunately, I'm only fluent in English, so I don't find them as interesting as he does. Try a different decoder, it should work. You should be able to find decoders or codecs at download.com

My wife played a region 1 DVD 5 times on my Presario M2000 laptop and now it is locked to region 1. can I unlock it to play region 2 again?


No you usually can't. However if you download VLC Player (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/) You can play all Dvd regions. It's free, no spyware or anything. I use it and it's great :) Much better than standard media players.

Trying to unlock my DVD and get it back to region 1. Dell laptop with Vista.. An software out there or freeware that can help? Thanks in advance


I would recommend that you download a freeware application called VLC Media Player by VideoLAN.It is an open-source utility that is free to use, and plays virtually any type of video, including any type of DVD. The best part is that it completely avoids having to unlock the DVD to set the region.It also works on Windows PC, Mac, Linux, and even other more obscure operating systems. The link to download VLC Media Player is here:

My Acer Aspire 5315 does not play DVD films.


Hi,
to play dvd films, ensure your laptop has a media-player installed. i.e windows media player 9-10-11 et,c. also you could check in My computer/control Panel/system/device manager to see if there any yellow exclamation marks, next to any devices. if there are. you,ll need to re-install drivers for the device.

if this solves your problem, please rate as fixya.

thankyou for using the forum.
