Windows Media Player and InterActual

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
When I used to insert a DVD into my computer drive, I had the option of selecting a program to use to run it - I selected one (I can't remember which) which ran it brilliantly. Now, however, this option has mysteriously disappeared, which has left me with two options (Windows Media Player and InterActual) neither of which work.

Windows Media Player:

It says it is currently unable to play DVDs. I have followed the troubleshoot, but this hasn't sorted it.

How can I configure my computer to accept DVDs?

InterActual:

It says that I have a problem with the video subsystem and that lowering my screen resolution or colour depth may fix the problem. How do I do this?

Cheers for your help. :)

    I did what you suggested. The following is a list of things under 'sound, video and game controllers' under 'device manager':

    AC-link 3D Game Enhanced Audio
    Audio Codecs
    Legacy Audio Drivers
    Legacy Video Capture Devices
    Media Control Devices
    MPU-401 Comp. MIDI Device
    Standard Game Port
    Video Codecs

    Which is my graphics card?

    Monitor A727 Packard Bell on Intel(R) 82810E Graphics Controller.

    Do I now need to search for an update for this?

    Thanks mate.

    Should I open it or save it? If the latter, where to?
