    I have had my HP Pavilion a1210n computer for about 2 years...I have been burning CD's, playing movies, etc, all just fine until about 3 months ago, and my DVD/CD player started to skip...and it skips through the whole thing! It will play the DVD, but it skips and you can't understand anything they are saying, so needless to say, I took that DVD/CD burner out, and I went and bought a new one.....I purchased the recommended one, a HP 940d dvd writer........That seemed to fix my problem!!! It worked GREAT for about a month, then suddenly, the SAME problem is back!!! With the new DVD burner!! :confused: I have tried the HP online tech support, but they didn't do anything for me! I haven't installed any new programs....all drivers are up to date.....I've scanned for spyware, adware, and of course virus protection is always running in the background! Does anyone have any suggestions!!? also, it WILL burn a CD.....It takes a little longer, but it will burn one!!! Also, when I put in a DVD, it is almost like the processor is too slow, it slows down everything, even my mouse is slow and dragging! And my processor is fine.....I can play music, view video and games anywhere online......it is just my DVD player!!! I use Win DVD to watch all of my movies in.......I've tried using Media Center, and it won't play there either....I've also tried watching them in Intervideo.....won't play there either! Same thing! Any suggestions??? I am desperate! :eek:
