1) Check the cables if you are connecting to an external stereo
or speakers.

2) Press control-alt-delete to launch the program manager, and look for other tasks hawking the system. Try increasing the media player's execution priority by one notch (right-click on the task in the task manager, and change the priority to "Above Normal")

VLC player, for example tends to cause music drop-outs when the computer gets busy with other tasks. Make sure the computer is powerful enough to play music on, and don't run big applications at the same time as playing music.

It should be at least a P4 at 1.5 GHz these days and
512 to 1024 MB of RAM

Also make sure that the CD / DVD player is up to scratch
in terms of reading speed, and that it is not damaged or dusty inside.

Finally make sure the CDs or DVDs themselves are not damaged. If so they can often be re-polished by a professional.

The actual data on a CD is stored on the label side, underneath
the label/reflector. The laser shines through the plastic. If the plastic is scratched the laser beam scatters and you get drop-outs and errors. But this can be re-polished. If the label is damaged, however, there is a strong probability that the data is gone. Also CDs and DVDs uses powerful error correction schemes and data re-dundancy to compensate for minor damage.

Dvd play intermittent


You seriously need to think about upgrading your PC. In all honesty I am surprised you can get anything out of your Pentium 3 with 128mb of RAM. This can't even be worked with.

Acer AX1700-U3700A with variable Audio on HDMI


Your problem isnt in your PC, it's because you chose the onboard sound to listen to music etc, which is normal. Unfortunately, you need to choose the HDMI Audio output if you want sound on your TV FROM the HDMI cable. Right click the sound icon located to the lower right side of your screen and choose (adjust audio properties). Now go to the audio tab and click the output device window and choose your HDMI audio output, whatever it may be called. Just pick the one that wasn't selected when you opened it and click ok or apply. Now all audio output is controlled by your Video card lol. Crazy aint it?

Lg dvd gh22lp20 wont read most dvds


I use this laser lens cleaner disc that has brushes on the bottom that can get fog and dust off the lens. It sounds like that may be your problem since it is intermittent.

Feel free to Google "laser lens cleaner" but here is an Amazon link that popped up when I did Google that phrase.

Dvd will not play movies


I'm assuming the system says that there is no disc and you've tried factory DVDs (self made ones can have intermittent results on different burners).

If that is the case, this is probably a problem with the drive's DVD laser. There are two different lasers in most (probably all) combo drives. One for CDs and one for DVDs. You need a new drive.
