Plug a pair of head phones in the speaker jackon the computer and play a video or some music.
If the head phones cut out also, you can rule out the speakers being the problem.
If the head phones work properly, its time to get a new pair of speakers.
Now , If the cutting out is caused by the computer , it can be a bunch of things
1. not enough bandwidth in steaming audio or video
2. video driver issues
3. codecs in your players
4. spyware
5. other programs you have running in the background
I would attack the last first, turn of everything but your media player, empty your temporary internet files and cookies, check for any updates or hotfixes for your media player, and check for video driver updates.
Hope this short guide helps you . Please post here again if you need further assistance and please rate the assistance at the end.

Gateway dx4840-11e. During video can hear music but not actor voices. What to do?


do you have the sound set to surrond sound? What it sounds like is that it is trying to play through surrond speakers but you dont have them, which is why you can hear the music and not the actors voices. click with the right mouse button on the speaker in the bottom right of your screen, then click on sounds , now click on the playback tab in the sound window, click on the sound device shown and then click configure, choose stereo and choose two speakers. Continue to the end then try to play the video and see if you can now hear the voices. If you cant then you maybe missing codecs needed to play the audio correctly. Please state if this is a movie you have downloaded or a dvd film on disc etc

Tip

To connect a music player or other audio device to your laptop


<br />If your laptop has a line-in jack, follow the instructions above for connecting a music player to a desktop computer. But to connect a music player or other audio device to most laptops, you'll have to plug it into a microphone jack. To do so, follow these steps:<br /><br />Click to open Sound. <br /><br />Click the Recording tab, click Microphone, and then click Properties.<br /><br />Click the Listen tab, click the Listen to this device check box, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Click the Levels tab and make sure the Mute button looks like this . If the button looks like this , click it to turn on sound for this connection, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Play some music or other sounds on your device to test the volume coming through your computer speakers. Select the slider under Microphone, drag it right or left to increase or decrease the volume of your audio device, and then click OK. You might also want to adjust the volume on your device.<br /><br />Note<br />If you hear noise coming out of your speakers, try reducing the volume on both the music player and in the Levels tab. The microphone jack is designed to receive sound from a microphone, which is different than sound coming from a music player

Will it harm my laptop to listen to music on it every night all night?


No, it will not harm your laptop, it might harm your ears if you listen to it too loud through headphones. The only possible damage could occur if you listen through the laptops speakers, too loud and constant would adversly wear out the speakers.

I need to know if my computer needs a sound card or speakers. I have a Dell, Model MTC2 July 04, P/N F556 rev A00 c


The sound card is integrated and of course you need a speaker to listen songs or watch movies or etc...etc... If you have a speaker and you can't hear any sound, then there must be some settings you need to configure, you can refer to this troubleshooting tips (click here), open the link and read the instructions on Page No. 31 of the document.

If you need further help, let me know with more details.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

When trying to play torrent movies on my computer, I get picture and background music and sound but no voice.


Is this every torrent movie you try and watch ?

The site you are getting them from might just be full of junk. There is no reason you should get music/sound but no voice.

Try downloading VLC Media Player.

Note: Downloading movies threw torrent sites is Illegal.

you need to update your codecs.  a codec is a Coder/decoder hence the name.  the file is coded at one place and your computer has to decode it.  First off you have to find out what file isnt playing correctly be it a divx, and avi, an mpeg, an mp3 , an mp4 , a wav...... and on and on.  once you figure out wich one is messing up do a google search for the codec.  example divx = bad then search "divx codec download" and follow the links till you find one you can download.  scan it for virus then install.

should fix the problem.

Can you hear sound through the headphone port? If so then it's possible the speaker wire came loose on the inside. If not, then it's most likely a motherboard problem and you should contact ACER for warranty service.
