How can I get sound on my laptop, I have a DVD in and the picture is ok but no sound. Aged pensioner and not very good with computers

Try a CD and a few other DVD's that you know are good. If they all don't work you may need to re-install the CD driver or the audio driver. You should be able to download them at the link below:

Show to install sound device driver in windows xp ?

  • 1 Insert your driver disk into the CD/DVD ROM drive. The disk should automatically boot. Then follow the on-screen instructions. This usually entails clicking on "Install" or "Install Sound Driver."

  • 2 Read and use the "Add Hardware Wizard." Click the "Next" tab. Windows XP will scan your computer for components.
  • 3 Scroll down the list to "Audio Drivers" or "Sound Drivers." Then click "Next." Select the "Finish" tab. Another window will appear.
  • 4 Select the "No, Not This Time" option on the "Hardware Update Wizard." Click "Next." Choose the "Install from a List or Specific Location" button. Then click the "Next" tab again.
  • 5 Place the sound driver disk in the CD/DVD ROM. Point the "Search Option" to your CD/DVD ROM or download folder. Click the "Include This Location to Search" box. Type in the path to your download folder or select the "Browse" option. Search through the computer to choose your download application. Click "Next."
  • 6 Wait until the file installs. This takes approximately two to three minutes. Turn up your speakers and reboot your computer

    My computer is not detecting the cd burner

    Hi lexrelt,unfortunately .. the cd burners either work or do not work.
    I am assuming you have the correct drivers installed for your model.
    if under warrenty, I'd suggest to approach your vendor to replacement CD burner or have one shipped out.
    The majority of the cd and/or dvd burners for laptops are hot swappable. if a replacement part is shipped to you .. then just push the eject clips underthe laptop to eject the cd burner hardware and replace it with a new one.

    How can I get my dvd player to work. when i put a dvd or cd in the player there is simply no response.

    you need to install the dvd decoder for your media player...

    but if you have a dvd burner software installer..just install its player and just play the dvd by that player and it will work...

    example of dvd burner : nero dvd burner, cyber lind dvd solution, etc.

    If you cannot see the speaker icon in the taskbar, click on Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices and tick place icon in the taskbar. That's if a driver has been installed for your sound device which is a creative sounblaster I think.

    Cd burner

    What programs can I use to burn or create CD's on my computer? If you're running version 10 or higher and have a CD/DVD burner drive installed in your computer you can create audio CDs using it.

    Computer DVD Support
    CH000885, CD or other disc tray does not close or opens by itself. CH000901, My CD or DVD is skipping. CH001014, Can a DVD burner also burn a CD?
    What hardware do you recommend or what is the best? What type of burner, CD-ROM, computer, DVD, fan, hard disk drive, monitor, motherboard, mouse, printer, sound card, speakers, and/or video card does.

    Computer CD-R help and technical information The CD-R drive does not actually create pits on the CD, instead the burner creates reflective sections on the CD causing the computer's CD-ROM laser to.

    Good Luck, Read and follow instructions.Please dont for get to Vote/Thank You.
