Exclamation COMPUTER WON'T PLAY DVD's.....

i have an HP pavilion 7955
o/s WIN XP home

when i put in a dvd in the dvd rom, nothing happens, won't auto start....

i try to play it manually, when i try to check the dvd rom files it says they are corrupted, won't show anything on mediaplayer,

i open interactual dvd and doesn't show anything in the dvd rom???

like i mentioned i receive that error message about the files being corrupted or an unknown format is being used...

does this with any and every dvd i put in

hope i can get this fixed soon.... TIA

you either have to have a hardware or software DVD decoder.. by the sounds of it you do not have hardware, most ATI/NVIdia cards have this and you need the appropriate drivers installed from the manufacture...

if not.. you need to get something like powerdvd, this will give you a software decoder, you dont have to use powerdvd to watch the dvd's but you need it installed.
