Is the dvd a retail dvd, or a copied dvd? can you play music cd's ok? if the sound is stuttering, you may have too many other programs running. Check the systme tray amd close down all other apps and icons. most likely a problem with the laptop needing more memory to play the dvd. also try another dvd player like vlc or divx.com, or xvid.org for updated player codecs.

Distorted, scratchy sound with Toshiba Satellite


OK, I would restore or recover the computer to manufacturer's original specifications and automatic update to the latest sp3.

Then, I would reinstall your virus protection and see if it's better.

Scratchy noise?


Are the speakers old? The only thing that can make a random scratchy noise on the speakers as far as I know is a dirty volume knob. Try turning it all the way up and all the way down (with nothing playing) and see if that helps. If it does, blow them out with some compressed air. I'm thinking your issue is probably software / driver related though, does the scratchiness happen in other programs? WinAmp? Windows Media Player? .. if it does, you've narrowed it down to a driver-related issue, go to your sound hardware's manufacturer website and download the latest drivers.

Sound scratchy


Seems to me that the first thing you want to do is find out if your problem comes from the camera speakers/output, or if it records them scratchy. Take one of the "scratchy" cassettes, and play them on another device to see if it transfers bad audio. If it does, then you're worst off offcourse, more of a repair. If it doesn't you can decide you don't need a repair, as long as it does the job. Good luck
