\015 Ok now i have another issue that i hope you can help solve. (its different than the screen saver problem.) i just put a DVD into my drive bcuz i wanted to watch a movie on my Dell laptop, and now i get a window that says "Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer."(i have windows media player 10--just FYI)WHY does it say this?!!??!?!!? ive played DVDs on this computer many times in the past and never had this problem!!! i just watched a movie on this not two weeks ago and it was fine!!!!!!!OMG what is going ON here!?!?! ( i am very frustrated) all i wanted to do was watch a movie on here. >_<
can you help with this too please? i would be so grateful. \015

Answers :

You need the correct codecs to play DVD's. The codec needed can be different for different DVD's. Just install K-lite codec pack. That should work fine.

But as I cannot get thru to x2gen I was wondering what I can do to stop it as it is serious headache food. Any ideas?
