1. your device is not a 'DVD-ROM' device, nor a 'CD-RW/DVD-ROM' combo device.
2. you need software, such as the free 'VLD' software, to decode the DVD, and to "play" the video.
3. your DVD-disk is scratched -- will it play in some other computer or stand-alone DVD-player?

Some Toshiba's can be convinced to bypass the startup BIOS password if you hold down the <LEFT-SHIFT> key while booting the system.

try re-installing the device drivers to sort the problem

The newer dvd's often won't play on older machines. The easiest solution is to download and install the VLC Media Player. The VLC Media Player is an open source free player and can be downloaded here.

Hope this solves the problem.

Check the Toshiba site for updated drivers for your dvd player. Also check the recall section for your particular model dvd player. They had several that were recalled.

If you want to play DVDs 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 (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region and Passkey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region.
There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

Do you know where to change the region setting?
If not go to the Device Manager - click on DVD/CD-ROM Driver - then right click on your DVD drive, and click on Properties then DVD Region. You can change your region you require.
If you cannot change the region and the region is locked or you have run out of changes, you can install Region Free software on your computer that allows you to play DVDs from any region.
There may be freeware available on the Internet (do a Google search), but I use DVD Region Free from
it costs a few dollars but I have no problems with it, my DVD drive is locked on Region 1.
There are firmware upgrades available for DVD drives that make them region free, but if you make a mistake with the wrong firmware update then your DVD drive is now a piece of junk.

Sound like a performance problem. Did you try updating your video and sound drivers?
You should also see if the Adobe Flash Player is properly installed as that is used for Youtube playback.
