A lot of drivers are packed within windows itself but without you giving any details it is very difficult to offer any help. If you know what drivers you want then you should be able to find them on the internet click here
you may have to join but its free. If you want to know what os to install then look up the required specs. click here

ignore the last link it is the wrong one instead visit click here and search for the details of the os you want.

Before you wipe the machine you should click here and download a small program called Belarc Advisor. It scans your system and ouputs a printable report of its operating system, application software and hardware including details of make and model sound, graphics cards, modem and so on.

Assuming the PC still runs Windows I suggest you give it a try.

Finding your device drivers then becomes fairly easy with some simple searches online.

I would guess that your household dvd player does not support the file type of the movie. (regional settings for example)

Also as you now seem to have resolved the original issue could you please sign this thread as solved and start a new one for other matters in future, thank you
