Sony Vaio And Windows 7 Crashing

Evening All,

I have a sony vaio and everytime a play a dvd it causes the DVD to stop and when I go to Task Manger it says windows explorer has stopped responding and needs to restart. they only way I can get it to play again is to reboot! then it will do the same again!

This is starting to annoy me now does anyone have any suggestions

Running Windows 7

Do you have a backup from before the problem started that we can restore from?

Do you have a win 7 dvd that we can do a repair install with?

does it do the same thing when booted in safe mode (F8)?


Let us know
