Hi, dell laptop, when i put a dvd or cd in the drive, the sound or the image is all jerky, the little green light on the drive is flashing on and off very quickly, any ideas, or is it an hour on the phone to Dell..
What software do you use to play DVDs? Have you checked if the hard drive is needing defragged? You could try using another program at least that would tell you if it was the computer or something to do with the program you are using.
hi, have tried windows media player and and the dell media centre.. both the same, as first i thought is was the sound because that was all over the place, but i have just played a track which was on the latop and that was perfect.
In addition to Braindeads response RAM Memory is a big factor here playing DVD movies smoothly takes lots- also the size of the virtual memory disk- although Windoze usually takes care of that. So how much RAM does your machine have 512 Mb min but better with 1Gb I should imagine
