VAIO PCG-FRV37 I Loaded win 2k3 Server( It had XP home addition on it when i bought it) and I am having trouble with the DVD
Posted on 2004-09-26
I have loaded the ATI RADEON 345M (XPDriver vers. 220.127.116.1143) Drivers for my laptop and the screen looks fine. When I attept to load the "shared Library program from VAIO for ms 2000 and xp Version 2.0s.00.030s0" Media drivers it appears to load just fine but before it finishes loading I get an message that says the system must be restarted to complete th installation. so I reboot and nothing else happens and I looked to see if this program is loaded and it is not. I thought that maybe this program is required for the DVD to work. At the moment I cant read or burn dvd's cd's witht the built in drive.
Here is the error that I get when I try to play a dvd with POWER DVD
error code F6F00018
tHE current display mode is not supported
Power dvd does not support the current display mode.
DDraw overlay mode is recommended
Please lower the screen resolution and color depth for example 800x600 w/256 colors or U may adjust the refresh freq. to 75Hz I changed the settings and it was no help I did not know what to do with DDraw overlay mode so i couldn't chage that
I don't know much about dvds so if you could help me out with this process
