Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
My computer is set up in dvd region 1. My dvd's all played perfectly on my computer until today. I am now getting a message saying 'incorrect region' and then another message saying the dvd supports region 1, the dvd player supports region 1 but this is wrong and they wont play. What happened?
To change the Region code on your player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

Because the region code of your DVD player is not compatible with your DVD discs. You can get a region free player program on your computer and then you will be free from the region code issues. You could try Leawo Blu-ray Player which is a free Blu-ray player and you could use it to play any DVD and Blu-ray discs.
