Toshiba laptop problems...

Does anyone have a Toshiba Satellite 4100xDVD?

To make a long story short(er), I'm having problems with the DVD player.

If I insert a dvd, it generates an error message, and seems that the driver has been uninstalled somehow.

Does anyone know how I can re-install the driver?

Val -

Looks like the driver for the Trident 9525 DVD player on your laptop is on your windows 2000 CD - to update / reinstall it go to start -> settings -> control panel -> system

click the hardware tab

click device manager

it may be listed there under display adapters, or it may be listed under unknown devices (if it's uninstalled itself as you say)

right click on it whereever it is and go to properties

click on the driver tab and click update driver

when the wizard comes up check mark windows update and your cd-rom drive , put the windows 2000 cd in there

deep - someone just sent me this page - but is the display driver what I'm actually looking for, or is it the actual dvd playing portion that I'm looking for?

DAMN THIS is soo irritating.
I was at the US site and not the canadian site - for some reason the us site didn't have the win2k drivers. Anyways, here they are :

ftp://ftp.toshiba.ca/models/s2610/s261b2dp.exe

Unzip this file by double clicking on it, and then following the instructions I listed above, but instead of specifying windows update or your windows 2000 CD , specify location instead and browse to the directory where you unzip these files

this semester at school i came home just shitfaced from a night out and proceeded to take a piss on my roomate's laptop while he sat in bed watching.....we both had a good laugh about it, until the next day when i had to buy him a new one.

oh wait, you're looking for ways to fix your laptop, not fuck it up.....sorry.

Thanks so much deep!

I'll try it this weekend (I just got HSE sympatico will be activated on Friday)....

I'll keep you posted with my blundering progress.

deep. help.

The display driver download didn't do anything - other than give me a different message when I inserted my dvd "your dvd decoder is not found".

How can I fix this mother fucking cock loving whorebag of a laptop?

If I have a friend with the identical laptop, can I somehow pull the decoder off them? (they just installed 2000, so this is assuming the dvd function still works for them)

I'm usually not this incompetant, but I've now tried everything that has been recommended to me...

I don't think you're incompetant. Unfortunately you've faced the woe that is having hardware for which there are not up to date drivers.

Have you tried using different playback software for DVD's? Software DVD players get around the whole problem of needing hardware decoders by decoding the DVD themselves. PowerDVD XP is the best program for the job, if you've got your high speed connection set up I can get it to you. Might be worth giving a shot if the playback attempts at the moment aren't working.
 
THANKS!

sending pm with my e-mail account (which should be active as soon as Sympatislut sends me the fucking new modem).

Er, if we can do it over e-mail. Whateva.

File size may be a little bit to send via email. I'll see if I can get it to you via the web somehow.
