You don't saty what OS you have, but in Windows: open Control Panel, Dbl-click Display, click on the "settings" tab, then slide the slider to the resolution you want.

Displays "NO DISK"


The message indicates that the system failed to read the index portion of the disc. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Try playing a music CD as well. If hte CD plays but the DVD continues to fail, you have a failing optics assembly that needs to be replaced. This is the most common symptom of failing optics. DVDs will fail while CDs will play.

You will need to pay a visit to the HP website to download the drivers for your video card.
They can be located HERE
.
While you are there, udate any other drivers like audio etc. As is stands you will be running very outdated Microsft WDM drivers. Nowhere near as good as the genuine thing.

DVD Player on Desktop


Have you tried using different players?  One of my favorite players is VLC.  You can google it and download it for free.  It is a bit difficult to figure out at first but it will handle just about any type of video even fragmented.
