Default Anybody with Toshiba Laptops?

I have a qosmio g35 av 650 and i have done all those updates for the hd dvd drive to work and still it says it has to be plugged into an external display?

i am so confused with all the updates for this and i have kinda given up on getting it to work but since this laptop is the reason im in the hd dvd game to begin with it would be cool for it to work?!?!

i dunno maybe thats a crazy dream hahah

anybody have any experience with the laptops that could chime in?

thanks in advance

I bought a Toshiba Satellite A205-S6808 in January. The HD DVD on it wasn't working for me either. It would keep giving me an error message saying something like "external device must be connected". I was about to return it for a refund, but something told me to pop in the restore disk and try it out. I did that, and my hd dvd drive starting working perfectly since then. I don't know how much stuff you have saved, but if you haven't tried to restore it yet than that's an option. It worked for me.

I also have a Satellite A205. The player has worked for me since I got it. I was pretty impressed with the picture quality.
