Question about PC Desktops
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.

You may have configured windows as if you have a home theater sound sistem.
Check on windows CONTROL PANEL / SOUNDS AND AUDIO DEVICES and look for the Speaker Settings and click on the ADVANCED button and select the type of speakers you have.
Then, you might check you have connected the speakers to the correct outputs of your sound card, some soundcards have multiple outputs for front and rear speakers and even for subwoofers... check them out.
You might also check if your sound card has it's own audio mixer / effects program. Some cards have a program apart from Windows speaker volume icon beside the clock. Some programs may have configured your speakers for surround configurations, double check windows audio and your sound card audio for Dolby and Surround options enabled and try disabling them.
Hope this helps at least a little!

Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.
