To add some content to this...  I personally have never needed to set
the region on a DVD drive.  But I haven't bought any new DVD drives in
a while.  Certainly my old ones are still playing DVDs routinely.  If
this is true in your case I doubt it is the system but probably the
DVD drive itself that is enforcing a region code.

If you have two drives then you might consider booting a KNOPPIX live
boot disk on one of the drives and playing a DVD on the other.  That
would provde a hardware check with a different operating system.
