You need a piece of software to play DVD movies. Is this an actual DVD movie, or is it an MP4 or WMV/WMA file?

Usually you need something like WinDVD to play a DVD movie. I don't think Media Player can play those.

Did you recently install another piece of software that might have affected your ability to play DVDs?

The problem may be with,
1. Graphics driver installed in your laptop
2. The Video file which you are trying to play may got corrupted.
3. The player you are using to play the vedio may not have proper codec to play the file
1. Reinstall the graphics driver for your laptop
2. Try playing some other vedio files
3. Install VLC player and try playing using this player as it supports most of the vedio formats and even plays corrupted vedio files.
I hope this is helpful to you.

To reduce power consumption to a minimum, the hardware powers off all devices. Have you done all the hardware (Toshiba) and software updates ( Windows) to your system?

Physically examine the make and model of the sound card as sometimes these are replaced with generic ones.
Alternatively, run a driver detector to get an accurate model of the sound card.
