Did you undertake a "repair" of the XP installation..?
You should repair the existing installation using your original install disk But don't use the Repair console option, Go past this option until the install program tells you that it has detected an existing installation and would you like to either repair this installation or re-install from scratch.. Choose the repair option. Once this has completed, you should then install the mainboard drivers and then, go to Windows update and install ALL the required updates.
This method ensures that the old mainboard drivers are removed and the new ones, including updates are installed. If this fails for whatever reason, you may have no choice but to undertake a full re-installation of XP including a format of the drive (sorry)..
Then, once you have done this, you will need to re-install MS Office again as the repair of XP will overwrite some of the data and DLL files belonging to MS Office..
Booting up on the Windows XP CD will allow you to format your Hard Drive & install Windows. You may need to check your BIOS settings to ensure that you can boot from a CD, if you have never done that before. The motherboard CD may contain drivers for such things as video and sound or network, and these may not function at full capacity until the drivers are installed. Most drivers can also be downloaded from the manufacturers website if the CD is not available.
Next up select Windows XP Professional as your operating system. Now click, "Drivers." The first result should be the Realtek drivers, which are what you're searching for. Download them. Once they finished downloading open the file and the drivers should be installed automatically.
If there's anything else I can help you with, let me know. If this solution solved your problem, please rate the solution.
Every time after formating the hard disk and doing the fresh installation of windows, you need to install the driver i.e. in motherboard CD that you are got with your motherboard. After installation of all driver; the pc will work smoothly.

Hello folks, If you install another program like Nero xxx. Nero adds or can take away window media player's format from playing certain codec’s. Any program installed like burner software can do the same. This is a software issue. To help fix it download & install codec's from this site. This should help to regain sound for DVD formats. http://www.free-codecs.com/K_Lite_Codec_Pack_download.htm Free download. Other items. Some PC's can loose DVD sound in windows media player 11. Check that you're version of windows is up to date. Last ditch effort. Insert the DVD & open windows explorer. Right click on the DVD drive & see what the format is. (Ex: ***.vob, ***.mp4, ***.divx). Than search either Microsoft or Google for the matching codec's. Download & install it from the web. Suggestion. Use only one playback software program. Bouncing between programs is not suggested. Find which looks & sound best for you & uninstall the others if not needed.
If by chance non of the above has helped or fixed this issue, please list the program you are using to play DVD's & the format of the DVD.
