Bluray on laptop has garbled display
Posted on 2014-09-07
I have a question regarding Blu-ray playback on a laptop. I haven't done much with computer-based Blu-ray before, so I am hoping the experts will say there is a simple fix!
Basically, I have a Toshiba Qosmio F750 laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I have installed the latest version of the blu-ray software player provided by Toshiba which is Toshiba Blu-ray Disc Player v188.8.131.52.
When I insert a disc to play, the disc starts to play (presumably the copyright warnings) but all I get on the display is a plain green screen. When it arrives at the menu screen, the main content is completely garbled. It's hard to explain, but the display has a series of mutli-coloured vertical lines that are always changing, and seem to be flashing on and off. There are four horizontal rows of these lines. The audio is playing fine.
A strange thing is though, it only seems to affect the movie content. The menu bar that appears and has options such as Play, Subtitle, Special Feature, etc, displays absolutely fine.
I am in Australia and the Region Code is currently set to B which I believe is correct.
Any information / suggestions that anyone has would be most welcome.
