Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

It used to play dvd's, but will not play anymore. says Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card.


Answers :

First confirm you have DVD decoding software on your machine (such as PowerDVD). You MUST have a dvd decoder for movies to play.
Second, have you been changing the region settings on your dvd player? The device (not just Windows) allows 5 changes, and once theyre used up, the device is permanently in the last change made, even if Windows is reinstalled.
Third, if you have a specialized video card with extra abilities (such as a TV tuner) the software and drivers for it may be missing. Head to Dells website and see if there are additional drivers for your notebook.
If you got the notebook from Dell and its still under warranty, they may be able to help you resolve. Good luck.
Use Windows update, (optional hardware and/or optional software) and I believe there's a tab in WMP to update too
