No audio

If this is a desktop make sure you plug the speakers into the correct port and that the speakers are turned on and the volume is up. Also check the Audio and Sound Properties (Volume Control) to make sure the volume is turned up and not on mute.

Try downloading and installing the VLC Player, it comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve many issues with sound.

Try using VLC as your player. Go to and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

Also if this is a desktop, you can always purchase a pci sound card that goes into one of the available pci slots for less than $15.

I need video controller driver(vga compatible) because i can't play videos i download from the internet

This doesn't sound like a Driver issue, sounds more like you do not have the proper codec(encodes/decodes video)installed. Download This is a free video player. This player has a huge variety of video codecs pre-installed.

Hello volovending, it 'sound' like you done a "Great" job on building your [First] Computer, Congradulations! Now, one of the "Most" important things to do is "Run the CDs that came with the Motherboard, Keyboards, Mouse, DVD Player, and Graphic Card; if you have brought them 'separately,' ther should be one for {each item}. If you brought the [Package] as a "Bundle Item," then the "Motherboard CD should provide most of the Hardware and Software Drivers" The Drivers are needed for the CPU to 'communicate' with the Computer Components, or 'simply' put; Work Properly. These instructions should help fix the problem. 1. First, "Shut-Down the Computer. 2. Un-Plug the Computer from the "wall power outlet." 3. Next, Plug the Computer back into the "Power Outlet." 4. Restart the Computer. 5. If the Computer startup without any trouble? Continue! 6. What {Type of Operating System} did you install? Example: Windows7, Vista, or XP...? This is just a ? Its not that important just yet. Important: If you have "Downloaded the CDs Hardware and Software Driver? If not find the CDs; try to 'use the CD Tray to Downlaod them. If you are having a problem with the DVD Drive? Do the following. 7. "Shut-down the Computer again. 8. "Unplug from the (Power Cord) from the outlet." Note: You will have to remove / disconnect (all) the [Cables] and Power Connections from the DVD Player. 9. Reattach all cables and wiring, plug the Computer back in, and "Restart the Computer" 10. Try "loading the CDs for all the Computer Parts, again. Once you have "finished loading all the Drivers;" restart the Computer again! If all goes well? Then your Computer should work fine. "I hope this information is helpful? Thanks for using FixYa, paul7of9."

Cant play dvd in my computer

All you need is the MPEG-2 codec.

Download and install VLC Player. It includes MPEG-2 (and many, many other codecs). The program itself is free and works great.

I suggest you give the actual player a try. It's way better than WMP. If you decide you don't like it, just leave it installed. WMP can use the codec that VLC comes with to play DVD's.

DVD Sound Missing

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.
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.

Good luck all!

No Sound when I play a DVD, but I do have sound when I play a Music CD

Are you sure your player has got the right codecs to play both audio and video of the DVD you have burnt?

PS: Try installing the Ace Mega Codecs Pack just to make sure you have all the codecs. (Remember though that this software will install all the required codecs as well as the unneeded ones...the ones maybe required in the future probably)
