Re: dvd player produces no sound just picture.

Tom, the issue is with expired codec of your player. This is a software level issue. Two solutions: 1. set your system date to Nov. 15, 2006, then try playing it again. or... 2. download the codec from ***this should solve your issue***

My Computer's sound is not working

Please open control panel open sound settings, now check the properties , increase volume and set.
Open device manager and reinstall sound drivers. Also check if any of your media player is faulty. If so un-install and reinstall. If this wont solve restore the PC to an earlier setting on the backup/restore window.
If none of these work it is possible that the audio section hardware or a possible corrupt OS.

My DVD player in my laptop is not producing sound, only picture. I have an Acer Aspire 5738z. The sound works for everything else just not DVD. Would be grateful if you have any advice for me. Thanks

If you are trying to play the DVD using Windows Media Player, click on this DIRECT LINK for the K-Lite Codec and install it. This will let you play your DVD correctly. Please let me know of the outcome and we can try something else in case it does not work. Thank you and regards.

My PC doesn't produce sound from any file or program on internet, for example when I download Winamp media play it doesnt produce sound but you can see that the music is playing

First check you dont have a red line through your speaker on your toolbar. If so click it and "UN-mute it.

Open volume control.

When the box with all the sliders opens up click on OPTIONS (top left)

Make sure that Volume controls, Wave, SW Synth, CD PLayer, Line IN, and MIC all show on there and that the volume sliders are about half way up.

Make sure noe of the sliders have ticks at the bottom, if so UNTICK them.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else unles you know you want that item)

Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.

You should now have sound out of the speakers.

No sound when playing DVD

Here is a simple way to find out if it is the program that you are using or actually your computer. What I am going to do is list a link at the bottom for you to install and try and watch your movies on. This is called VLC it is a movie player with a bunch of different codec's. You can think of a codec as a way to translate the designed language of the movie into audio and video. Different movies are written in different ways and not all programs have all of the correct codecs. But anyway VLC is jammed packed full of codecs. I use it personally, never had a issue it works amazing. This is my quickest and easiest solution.

No sound in Vista Media Centre

Hi Nickluck
Depending on the OS and Drivers, DirectX version I presume 9c, check your AverMedia TV card, in other slot PCI, and reinstall drivers, if required. Should work.
but, drivers, too for the Video Card, if Nvidia? download the latest.
Good Luck
