Question about Computers & Internet
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.

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:
(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".

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.
