    Indeed. As far as I am aware the only software that allows bluray play back is Power DVD so I assume this is what you are using. What is actually happening. Are you getting a message that says the disc is not readable or what? Do bear in mind that just because your PC or Laptop came with a bluray drive, it does not necessarily mean that your machine is powerfil enough to playback video at 1080p. It's crazy but true. For HD playback you need a video card with at least 256mb of ram & a fast CPU. If you have a 512mb card or higher then the CPU is not as important. Please confirm that you have Power DVD software & a bluray drive & that your system meets the other requirements.

    The software may be up-to-date? Does your hardware support blue ray?

You can download a piece of Blu-ray player software and then install it onto your laptop. You can try Leawo Blu-ray Player which is a free Blu-ray player for both Windows and Mac.

Blu ray wont play

That machne does not have a bluray drive & that is the simple reason why you can not play a blu ray disc. This is what your drive supports.
Plays Standard or multiregion DVD's & Audio CD's. Records DVDs 8x & CDs 24x & Dual Layer Super Multi. No Bluray or HD DVD,

If you were sold the machine as a bluray laptop then take it back & demand your refund.

Your DVD is not Blue Ray capable. You would need to purchase a Blue Ray DVD player for your laptop, just having the software does not allow you to read them.
