Acer Aspire 1642z dvd decoder not installed error message

\015 A friend did some recovery work on my laptop, and I have not been able to watch DVD's since. There used to be Acer Arcade and several other programs to choose from to watch DVD's, but they are all gone now. I can't find it in my old programs, can't find it on my recovery disk, and Windows Media Player comes back with "could not play this dvd because a compatible dvd decoder is not installed on this computer"\015

Answers :

Your friend probably reinstalled a "generic" version of Windows,
\015\012and did NOT use the CD-ROMs that were supplied by ACER with your computer.
\015\012
\015\012If you still have those disks, maybe one of them is an "Applications" disk, and you can reinstall the "missing" applications from that CD-ROM.
\015\012
\015\012Or, if you don't have that set of CD-ROMs, contact ACER, and order a replacement set. Usually, the fee is $20, plus the cost of courier-shipping.
\015\012
\015\012Or, look at ACER's web-site -- they may make those applications available for free download.
