Re: I have no sound on my DVD but my CD's play fine...
Hi Sir, The problem is with the codec that is require to play
sound.You can resolve this by playing your DVD in another player like
VLC media player or you will have to install the latest codec pack
which supports major Audio and Video formats.
Following are the links to download both the VLC media player and K-Lite mega codec pack- Download any one of them and install on your system.I am pretty sure this will resolve your problem.

If so and even if so, you need to have an audio cable installed connecting the DVD drive to the Sound Card in order to get sound when playing a MUSIC CD or DVD player from that drive. So double check that inside of the PC.
Next, go into the Audio Settings in the Control Panel and make sure sound is not muted.
Is the driver installed properly try that if that is already done perhaps there is a special program it requires rare but not unheard of if you have a disc with the card see if it has a audio program with it.
Try going into the control panel - Sounds. Find the different items that can have sounds. There you can select a sound and play it. Do you hear it? If so, it's not the computer or card setup. If you don't hear any of the sounds there, it's probably the sound card (either hardware or drivers). The CD plays through the soundcard so it's not likely the hardware.
As to the keyboard control, that's likely HP specific drivers that are missing or wrong. If you reinstalled Windows on this machine - you may not have all the original drivers that came with the machine, especially if you downloaded them from HP support. Sometimes those "special" functions are hard to find.
heres a suggestion go back to xp service pack 2. service pack is very easy to use and more compatibility than sp3. right now my 10 pc's are all xp sp2 and they have no problems about the sound.hope that helps
Call IBM/Lenovo. For about $60, they will provide a complete set of "Recovery CDs" for the ThinkPad. That software will include a DVD-player and the correct sound-drivers.
Or, check IBM's "support" web-site -- you may be able to download the correct drivers.
