My sound on my laptop works fine but when i try to play a movie on it the sound is messed up but the movie plays fine whats wrong with it?

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.

Whenever I play a DVD, the playback seems a slow both sound and video. Not sure if I need to clean it or what? I have a Lenova 0769 running XP Pro Version 2002 SP 3.

If it is your cd-dvd rom, or your dvd's, your movies would skip, freeze, like any other movies players such as a scratch dvd played on your home dvd player. So,
did this happen before any updates to your o/s, such if you are using windows media player to play your movies?? If not, it could be a software issue, where some updates will bring your programs up to date, but uses more cpu/memory and even your GPU (graphic processor) and thus cause your movies or video to play back slowly because your computer hardware is underpower to handle the up to date versions., or it could be vise versa where your program will needs an update to the newest version to play. (Usually like adobe, java to watch youtube or online videos). You might want to see if you can play with another program and see if you get different result, or maybe undo your update to previous version.

I have the Netbook and just bought an external DVD so I can watch movies on my flight to England.... Movies play fine, but there is no sound!

Control Panel -> System -> Hardware tab -> Device Manager

Click [+] next to DVD/CD-ROM drives, double-click the drive in question.
In Properties tab, make sure the box is ticked next to
Enable Digital CD-Audio for this Device

Hopefully you'll have sound after this.

Computer is slow, delay in processing

Well firstly,

you telling me that you took out the CD while it was in major use (data transfer onto computer) triggered A LOT of issues; like the ones you have now.


- Run Defragmenter (this WILL help if you have a lot of fragmented files; incomplete CD copying may be a part of it too)

- Check your devices; they may have been altered (Go to right click My Computer --> Manage --> Device Manager --> find the devices that are acting up)

- Run Disk Clean up (The files from the CD that were not successfully copied may have left some large temporary files on your Hard drive)

- Check your Sound drivers and Sound settings

Hope I helped

The sound to cd/dvd movies doesn't work

Are you playing a video from the Internet or something you put in your CD/DVD drive?

Go to "My Computer" - right click and go to "Properties". See if anything has a yellow exclamation point. If this is by your sound card it means there is a problem with the driver.

The first thing I would recommend if you do not have any yellow signs there is to go to your sound card in the list. Right click and delete it. Restart your computer. When your laptop restarts the "Found New Hardware" wizard should appear and will automatically install and update your audio drivers. You might need to have your original Windows CD.

Give me more information and I should be able to help you if the above doesn't work.

Reformatting an Acer Travelmate 2310

Enter the first recovery cd, and choose the option to format the hard drive and install a fresh copy of windows. Then enter the second recovery cd when it asks. It should have an option of formatting the drive when you put in the recovery cds. There is not that much that can go wrong, since you want to delete everything anyway. Hope that helps :).

HP Pavillion dv6121tx 15.4" notebook problem with DVD


It sounds like a hardware fault on the drive itself. The laser and focussing mechanisms are different for CDs and DVDs. The fact that the drive can read DVDs fine suggests that the laser and lenses can no longer focus correctly to deal with CDs.

Replacement of the drive would be the only fix, although you might find it a lot easier to buy an external USB DVD drive.

Various issues can cause drives to occasionally balk at writing optical discs. These run the gamut of physical, hardware, and software troubles.

Inappropriate or dirty media may be to blame. Make sure to match the type of recordable disc to the drive, and check each disc for fingerprints or other contaminants. If a disc is dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft cloth in a straight line from the center hole outward. Try a quality optical drive cleaning disc if you suspect dust contamination on the drive’s laser lens.

Some discs don’t perform well with certain drives, even within their rated speeds. Try recording at a slower speed and then with a different brand of disc. Also, on PCs, verify that the temporary file storage area on the hard drive used by the burning software has enough free, defragmented space. Allocate at least 5GB for a DVD (9GB for a double-layer [DL] disc) and about 1GB for CD burning.
