You cannot uninstall directX as its part of windows, the decoder you may need does not come with a dvd, only Nero or similair programmes have a decoder, unless you buy it online.

You will find there is a version of directx on microsoft site, which over writes previous versions

Error message says I have no decoder. What now???


You'll need a decoder from a program like cyber dvd or win dvd. Nero also has one and sonic too. If the drive came with a dvd player program install it. You can also find them through windows media player at microsoft's website but they will cost a few bucks. Search the internet for dvd player software you may find one for free. I hope this helps you. If you are like me you might have a program in your pile of software cds'.

My computer doesnot produce sound when iam playing music


Firstly check your device manager to assure that all drivers are installed properly, If there are no errors in your device manager
then move to the secend step,
I am assuming that your problem is with DVD playback?
DVD's require a software decoder which unfortunately for some reason have been neglected in the operating system, There are free decoders available if you do an online search for "free DVD Decoder download"
If none of these things remedies your problem let me know, I will reply as soon as I can.
