    Sorry to bother you gentlemen but I require some advice about a problem that I am having. I have an E.Notebook laptop. A short time ago it became very slow and I am pretty sure that it had a virus. I had just bought a PC and it came with its own disc of Windows 7. I therefore rebooted my laptop with this copy of windows 7. The laptop has been fine until I tried to play a DVD on it earlier. I have never had a problem with it before I rebooted it. The message I keep getting is:

    "Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because it is not possible to turn on analog copy protection on the output display. Try installing an updated driver for your video card."

    I have tried looking online for a way to resolve this. I followed one suggestion that I need to adjust screen resolution and identify that there is only one monitor. Alas this has not worked. Can you offer me any suggestions please?

    Try a different media player.

    The WMP error is likely tied to the video driver. Are you using the drivers supplied by the laptop manufacturer? The manufacturers drivers are often specific for that model/chipset. Generic drivers or standard chipset drivers don't always work/work well.
