It could be a potentially corrupted movie file or disc. If it is a disc, examine it near a light source to check for scratches; also, consider testing it in a DVD player of some kind, and determine if the audio problem persists. Otherwise, if it is a file, try using another program to play it, or find another copy. If the audio problem persists for all movies, consider changing the program.

SOURCE: DVD Stutters

Most likely, WinXP is forcing your Secondary IDE (master) to run in PIO mode rather than DMA mode. This could come about after playing a scratch DVD. WinXP makes a quasi-permanent change here that you cannot alter with Device Manager.

Here's the solution I found at http://winhlp.com/node/10

To Remedy, use regedit:
Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E96A-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
(note ..96A-E325... is UNIQUE)

Under this key, look for the entry "0000" or "0001" etc. that has the following properties:
DriverDesc = Secondary IDE Channel
MasterIdDataChecksum = ?some value?

Delete the MasterIdDataChecksum line from this entry, then reboot windows.

Verify using Device Manager that the secondary IDE channel is now "DMA mode".

Good luck.

SOURCE: system sound not working on Dell Inspirion 6000 laptop

There are two sides of the problem. Hardware and software. To check whether the hardware is defective:

Try running the Pre-boot System Assessment (PSA):
1. Shutdown system
2. Press and hold on the "Fn" key.
3. Press the power button to turn the system on while holding on the "Fn" key.
4. Run the PSA until you get to the "colored bars". Then press "N" to say no.
5. Should you hear the beep codes, that means that the sound card is working fine. If you don't hear anything, then you need to replace your motherboard.

Now if your hear beeps that means that there's something wrong with the driver and audio settings. Do the following:

1. Right-click on My Computer then click on Properties
2. Click on Hardware then Device Manager
3. Click on the (+) beside Sound and Audio Devices
4. Right click on Sigmatel then click "Uninstall".
5. Go to support.dell.com
6. Click on Drivers and Downloads
7. Enter the Service Tag of your system (found at the bottom of your laptop)
8. Then download the audio driver. Just save it on your desktop first.
9. Restart the computer.
10. Install the driver.
11. Go to Control Panel -> Sounds and audio
12. Make sure that Sigmatel is the default sound device.

Please rate this solution if this helps.

Thanks,

I have a hp elitebook 6930p the sound is not fine. I mean the music is playing fine but the words spoken in songs and movies are not audible I don't know what to do


Laptop's are not known for there sound, the smaller the laptop the smaller the speakers are by design. That said, try different Media players with Equalizers, Real Player, VLC, etc. You can find freeware Media Players here: http://www.filehippo.com/ OR a External Speaker, I use the Bose Sound Dock: http://www.bose.com/controller?url=/shop_online/digital_music_systems/sounddock_systems/sounddock/index.jsp

Windows media has sound no visual when playing


Your media player might be having problems getting the video feed from the USB. try copying the file to your local disk and play the movie from there.

Try messing with some the of the BD settings.

It's under SETTINGS, VIDEO SETTINGS.

Let me know if this helps.

I can't say exactly which one you need to change and don't worry about messing anything up, you can always just change them back.

Let me know which one fixes your problem.

Best of luck!

DVD'S will not play..


Sounds like the unit is bad, or set to the wrong Regional Code. Its not easy to set the regional code and it varies by model. You are better off buying a new DVD player given they can be found for under $30.

Not playing voice but playing music/surround


sounds like you may have a dodgy scart lead.check that none of the pins are loose/damaged. Also check the sound settings on the tv, it may have reset itself to the default sound setting. Or it might just be the audio settings on your dvd player have been adjusted,almost all dvd movies have there own audio adjustments.
