Windows XP Home, 2.66 GIG Intel MB/CPU
I installed this DVD so that I could watch DVD's. I installed the software (Cyberlink Power DVD 6 & Nero OEM Suite)that came with the drive. I can't play DVD's. Any ideas?
Thanks, Jerry

put the DVD in the drive?

Just kidding. You didn't tell us exactly what happens. Any error mesages? Is the drive listed in Explorer. Can you open Power DVD and have it find the drive. Does it see the DVD disk?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Thanks Coryphaeus, You helped me pull my head out of where the "sun don't shine". The decoder software was not properly installed. It's working fine now.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
