ati2mtag error messages

A friends laptop wont play CD's anymore
I tried a DVD and that plays films without problem but CD's just wirr away giving lots of noise but fails to work.
I checked event viewer to find several batches of ati2mtag errors including when I attempted to run a CD as well
Both Cat: DAL
one says Event 43015
12c return failed
the other 43016
not an EDID device
I have a feeling its a graphics issue possibly to do with an ATI graphics card but thats just a guess
Has anyone experienced the same?
Do I need to reinstall some drivers?
Is it that or something else?
Thanks

I would try updating the driver. See here for a similar tale.

I know i'm a bit late coming back
The laptop is a Dell Inspirion 1501 with ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 256mb graphics
I downloaded a driver from Dell website.
If that doesnt work are you sure the one you recommend will be ok?

Re: ati2mtag error messages

The Dell driver is a good place to start, as it might have been tweaked to suit other parts of the system. If that doesn't work, try downloading a driver from the ATI/AMD website. There is a panel on the right which should let you choose the most recent driver.
