Sounds like you've got a memory issue, sometimes when the computer is working with complex memory calculations the module dumps the data on the stack and poof reboot. Try a newer memory module? Also go into bios and see what options you have for memory processing, depending on age of laptop you might be able to disable the ALU in the CPU but it sounds like a memory issue.

ALso try reinstalling direct X, and even possibly windows itself.

Modem driver, consult mfg.

Why is it that sometimes I can watch DVDs on Windows Media Player and sometimes not?


Some movies are encoded with a protection the Disc acts as if you are tempting to copy the write protected dvd. you can get a program for free called shrink dvd that will remove the protection and copy the movie to your Pc so you can watch it.

DVD/CD drive won't recognize discs. System says corect driver installed


Is it a disc that someone made on their computer and gave to you or is it one you purchased from the store? Computers sometimes have a hard time reading a disc that someone made and gave to you. Try a disc that you purchased and see if it plays it.

See if you can update the driver in the device manager.

Uninstall the DvD Drive from the device manager, then reboot and let it reconfigure everything. Go the Control Panel and under System find the device manager. Right Click on the dvd drive and select uninstall. Reboot.

Reseat the the disc by unplugging the power cord, remove the battery, then turn the laptop over and remove the screw that holds the dvd drive in place. Pull the drive out, then put it back it.

If you are using Windows Media Player try the VLC player.
Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com andin the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Downloadand install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It'sa very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formatsand media. It's totally FREE.

MY PC dosent have vga compatible drivers and also my games are not starting so what to do to solve this problem


Sounds like the last time your a new operating system was put on your computer, the video card did not get drivers. For vga, Windows will use generic drivers if possible. Usually Windows recognizes video cards and installs the drivers. Occasionally, Windows does not recognize the video card, and you must do it yourself. Look up your laptop model online, and search for video drivers. Your best bet is from the manufacturer, or from Windows update, as you cannot always trust downloads from other sources. Depending on where you find the driver, and how it is packaged, you may have to either get it as an update, in which case it will install itself, or you may have to download it. I like to make a new folder when I do something like this - such as Jon on the C drive. Once downloaded, run the program and it will update. Make sure you have no other programs running. A reboot migh be needed. Sometimes these may be rather large downloads, so be prepared to wait if you have a slow connection. When done, I like to copy or move the update to a CD or DVD in case I need it later. Your games will not work unless they can tell which video card is installed, and if your computer is using the generic drivers, that is why they won't work.

Latitude e5400 doesnt want to play dvds. I insert the dvd, the autoplay reads the disk fine but when you select windows media player or powerdvd to play the dvd windows media player will open and then...


Hello,

Please try to update your codec in your Windows Media Player to ensure that the Windows Media Player will read the data in the Disk. Also you can download different types of player that has bundled with complete codec. Please try to download K-Lite Codec Pack Player or VLC Player.

Please select the version of your player that supports your current operating system. Then Begin to download nyh clicking the download link or button.

thanks

Windows Madia Player is playing but no sound


Check out another program besides windows media player to see if you can get sound, if so then get the latest version of windows media player and make sure you get the latest codecs.

Hi i have a dell studio with media direct.it crashes every 15 to 30 mins when watching a dvd player recorded DVD RAM disc. any solutions because it just took me 3 hours to watch a 2 hour program. Cheers


I would say it is the program you are using try using a different program to play movie e.g-

windows media player or DIVX player

if that doesnt work use this program to see if your video drivers are up to date:

Also the disk may be damaged

Shaky sound and video


To solve this:

1- Check if you have more than 1 DVD player program installed. If yes, uninstall any you don't use (being careful not to uninstall the one you use or that's needed for the recording part of what you do)
2- Check if you have more than 1 Media player software like VLC media player, Microsoft Media player (automatically installed) etc.

Because it also affects video played saved on your computer (assuming AVI or video you play using Windows Media Player or another player) and DVD playback, its usually a program that is conflicting with another of the same type (plays media Audio/Video). If the above solution did not work, try performing the "system restore" and choose a date of when you definitely remember it working without chatter. If this is not an option, proceed below.

If your computer has been performing regular updates and you happen to be using a new Windows Media player, do you remember if it happened during a computer software update? If yes, the fault lies with Windows Media player having performed an upgrade to itself. You may want to "demote" media player by going to Control Panel and "add or remove programs" list (making sure "show updates" is checked) and scroll down until you see Windows Media player. Then uninstall the latest update it has performed.

If you installed another media player/DVD player program(s) and it coincides with your problems, uninstall it. Multiple DVD/Media players have their own settings, file changes/updates and they can affect one another if installed simultaneously on 1 system.

Let us know how it goes and rate us. :)

My acer extensa 2300 dvd-rw drive wont work?


Try this; Goto > DEFAULT PROGRAMS > SET YOUR DEFAULT PROGRAMS > and check the settings for each media application you have on your system.
If you just use Windows Media Player then do this aswell > open windows media player, > TOOLS > OPTIONS and go through the various tabs and check the BURN & RIP options
If They dont work check that the device is installed correctly and is enabled! You can do both of these by going to CONTROL PANEL > DEVICE MANAGER.
Scroll down the list till you find DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES.
Right click on the Driver and click properties,you will then be able to varify the two.

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:
