It sounds like the cable going to your soundcard has come loose. Without that cable connected only video will play.

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

I'M HAVING TROUBLE WITH THE SOUND ON MY LAPTOP.WHEN I PLAY A DVD THE PICTURE SHOWS BUT NO SOUND.HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!


mcdevito75 here, It may be the sound track on the DVD itself, try another DVD and see how the sound is. If the sound is OK without any DVD being played you simply have to adjust the sound while playing DVD"s either at the speakers or with the volume control on your key board.

Thanks for the response. I installed the audio cable but still no sound. Any other suggestions?? Checked the device manager and it tells me that the dvd is functioning properly.


First guess, ensure the speakers are powered, double check all connections. Ensure that all audio drivers are installed in the device manager, or try installing the drivers for audio from Dell's website. You can search via your Dell service tag to provide drivers for your PC.

Ensure the volume control for Windows is turned up and not muted, and ensure the volume on the speakers.

Are you trying to play an audio CD from the DVD drive? If so, it may require a 4 pin analog cd audio cable which goes from the DVD drive to the sound card.

I can't hear voices when i play a dvd on my computer, just background sounds. i've tried many different dvd players (windows media, apple, etc) and have also checked my settings for mono or stereo speakers...


You should also check your DVD playback software and make sure that you have it set for desktop/laptop speakers and NOT for something like 5.1 or 7.1 surround etc.

DVD plays partial sound


Check your speaker connections it sounds like you have a 5.1 or higher sound system. 5.1 means left front speaker, right front speaker, center speaker, right rear speaker, left rear speaker and subwoofer.

Voices in movies all get channeled to the center speaker (you can usually hear it a bit from the right and left front speakers as well). If your center speaker is disconnected or not working, you will only hear the background sounds.
