There is no sound when i play a dvd

A few days ago when I played a dvd my notebook didn't register sound. The picture is fine just no sound. My notebook plays all other sounds such all my downloaded music,video game and audio cds. I check sound levels and some even suggested that i do a system restore, but sound levels were fine and the restore didn't help. At this point I completely lost and really need help.

Dear User,
Good Day!
Hi, Please try to eject your DVD then get a soft cloth and wipe gently the lens. Try it again... Be sure that the device is detected in your software...

My "FN' key does not work.

Hi there,

my guess would be that the function and f10 key haven't been mapped to eject the cd/dvd drawer. Go into settings and check under keyboard and maybe under keyboard shortcuts.

In regards to the cds playing and not dvds, this could be 1 of two things.

1. The firmware isn't working properly. Go onto the dell website and download any drivers for your computer.


2. The lens for the dvd is broken. This is more likely. Since the cd's and dvd's are read by different lenses they generally fail one at a time.

This will require you to bring your laptop in for servicing.

Hope this helped.

I have no sound when I play a DVD on HP Pavillion laptop..

This could be a codec issue. Try playing a DVD in VLC just be careful that it does not insert itself as the default player for everything.

Rebooted Windows on HP DV2120us and now Applications arent workin

It sounds like your drivers aren't installed. If you go to and click on click on Support and Drivers, enter in your model info you can download the drivers and install from their website. Drivers are programs that let your computer know about certain hardware. There should be a driver for each piece of hardware, video, sound, etc.

Prblem playing back DVD

The problem is most likely the DVD player itself not the software. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Update this if that does not resolve the problem.
