Video but no audio with DVD

Acer Aspire 363 laptop came with this installed, had it for 1 1/2 years, never had a problem. Yesterday, any DVD I tried played video but no audio, although discs all worked fine in an older Acer and in my TV player. I've re-booted, re-installed driver and software, run virus scans, and can think of nothing else. Anyone have any ideas?

    Oh yes, CDs play fine in same drive, streaming videos and mp3s play fine - only DVDs have the no-audio problem.

    I have already tried to update my software and that still hasn't worked. I just get the dvd playing and I can't hear anything.

    Audio works with Cd's and online video's, but the dvd shows video without sound.

Aspire 5515 dvd wont play sound


Does the laptop play CDs?
If so then when you start a DVD and before you play the movie, go into the audio setting and configure the speakers for laptop stereo speakers.
If you cannot hear music from the CD then check :-
1. The audio settings, volume not set to minimum and mute is not ticked (enabled)
2. Device manager - sound device is enabled and working, if not re-install the sound driver.

I can't install my audio driver


I apologize, You may try going to the offical manufactor of your audio. From what it looks like when I visited your laptop's manufactors website http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acer/bin/acer.html#app=2766&9e7c-selectedIndex=0&3386-selectedIndex=2&bca4-selectedIndex=1&bf37-selectedIndex=1&4f90-selectedIndex=1 it shows that your laptop does not have a audio driver install for your specific laptop running Windows XP. So I would please recommend you contact Acer over via phone the number for Acer is 1.800.816.2237. Is there anything else I can assist you with?
