If you see speaker icon in systray right click and open volume controls.
Be sure to uncheck all the mute boxes in every channel you are using (main, wave, synth, cd, linein etc.)
Let me know if you already went to this step or if it`s ineffective if you want any further support by me.

When I want to watch a movie I have no sound or volume.


Rita Manchette,
If you have sound in the computer but not within the movie,check to make sure that the program playing the movie is not muted. If you have no sound on the computer at all click the speaker icon on the taskbar to make sure the sound is not muted. If that does not resolve the issue you may need to install the audio drivers back into the computer.
Thank You,

How to watch movie from computer to tv


The easiest way to get your movies onto your TV may be to directly plug your computer into your set. Many computers come with video boards that output via S-Video, DVI (digital video interface) or even HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface). If your television has an input that matches your computer's video output, then you can simply plug one into the other and enable your television as a second display through Windows Control Panel or, on a Mac, System Preferences. Moving your PC within cable's length of your television isn't always convenient, however.

Computer shuts down watching netflix.........1/2 way into a movie Dell Inspiron 1525mj


The most likely thing is that you need to adjust your power savings settings on the computer in Control Panel. Watching a movie doesn't register as "activity" to the system so if you are set to Sleep or Hibernate after an hour that would typically cut you off half way thorught the movie.

You can change the power savings settings or every 30-40 minutes move the mouse around or click the keyboard etc. to restart the timer.

My Dell, recently got into a problem like it shuts down itself, only when i watch online movies. I started watching online movies eight months back but did'nt have this problem till last week. Its a Dell...


Without knowing anymore specifics, I'd guess to say that's its a heat related issue. Especially since it's summertime now and you're on a laptop. Note that when viewing online movies, especially if you choose hi-def over std-def, your laptop will use much more horsepower and thus create more heat than if you were just cruising the internet or working on an Office application. And when viewing a movie, you're doing this consistently for an extended amount of time. Eventually, your computer reaches a temp(usually specified in your computer's Bios) where it will either shutdown or restart in order to cool-off.

To verify and understand this, please perform the following steps:
1) Close any open programs, especially any internet browsers, and make sure your antivirus isn't performing a full scan.
2) Right-click on the taskbar (or hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete) and select 'Task Manager'
3) Now click on the 'Performance' tab.
4) Take note of how much 'CPU Usage' you're using. For example, I'm on a laptop, at idle, and it says 3% CPU Usage.
5) Now, open up your browser and go to where you watch online movies but don't start any videos yet.
6) Take note of the 'CPU Usage' now. Currently, I'm on Hulu and on average I'm at 8% CPU usage.
7) Now, start watching your online movie and take note of the 'CPU Usage'. For me, it jumps between 40-50% on std definition and 50-60% on hi-def.

So what's the solution if it's heat related, well for a laptop your best bet is to buy a laptop cooler (look for reviews online). I recommend any retail store or buying online from NewEgg, Amazon, or Buy.com. Also make sure any vents from the laptop aren't obstructed.

Now to keep a better eye on your laptop's temperature, I recommend the following 100% free, no spyware, no viruses, no adware programs:
(Note: after you install one of these, you may want to repeat the steps above and take note of the temps during each step)

HWMonitor

Real Temp
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/Real-Temp.shtml
Core Temp
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Windows-Widgets/Widget-Miscellaneous/Core-Temp.shtml
CS Fire Monitor (CPU Usage tray display, etc)

Good luck!

Display problem in d620


The question there is that, is the original operating system of the dell d620 is windows xp or vista, because it wont work properly if the drivers of the system is not installed, especially if the hardware is for vista but there is a workaround try to find the drivers of your system for xp on support.dell.com

Sorry, another problem


You need the correct codecs to play DVD's. The codec needed can be different for different DVD's. Just install K-lite codec pack. That should work fine.
