Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I've boought this Laptop about 5 months ago & watched only some 3 DVDs.Yester evening I tried to watch an original DVD 'Knight RIDER' but w/o success.
1.Inserted DVD as usual & = audible variable speeding up of drive motor with the active circular motion blue circle indicating data processing thru' HP Quickplay = Loading......(but only a whitish screen) .After 3mins w/o any sign of viewing I pressed, ctrl + alt +del = a pop up window = Quick Play not responding, Windows is checking for a solution to problem.
This is a common issue with Vista where few of the applications which may not work even if they are compatible with Vista.
I recommend you to try downloading and installing Service Pack 1 for Vista if you are using a Genuine or preinstalled version of Vista from the link below :
The issue should be fixed if the issue is with the Operating System because of which few applications are not operating correctly.
Additionally, I recommend you to try other applications like KLM Codec pack or VLC Media Player which use less RAM and Processing power when compared to Quick Play and Windows Media Player and I use them myself in my PC.
These applications are also capable of playing more video and audio formats which Quick Play and Windows Media Player cannot play.
Download K Lite Mega Codec Pack (KLM) which includes Media Player Classic to play most of the audio and video files from the link below :
You can download the VLC Media Player for yor Notebook from the link below :
Better way is to save the file in the Notebook and double click it once the download is completed to install it.
I am sure this is going to resolve your play back issues.
