SOURCE: JVC DVD player plays with distorted sound

Do you run your volume flat out? If you do then perhaps you've damaged the cones in your speakers. Some of these 5.1 speaker systems are utter rubbish. They look nice but the speakers are often garbage. Also running speakers at high volume for lengthy periods can overheat the coils and distort the cones.

SOURCE: Using dvd drive makes makes sounds

There is nothing wrong with your laptop. If you are copying a cd and trying to play music at the same time, you are pushing the processor power of your laptop or low on memory. When copying a cd it should rip it without sound to your hardrive, so i assume that your are playing music from your hardrive as well as ripping and this model of laptop i think comes standard with a 1.3ghz processor with 512mb of memory, which can easily be drained when ripping or burning.

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.

PHILIPS CDRW/DVD SCB5265 ATA Device cannot play most DVDs

I'm guessing you may have locked the DVD region. If you right-click on the device in Device Manager and click the Region tab, does it say 0 changes available? Acer won't fix this, and claim you have to replace the drive. Can't find a firmware flash for this drive online, will post back here if successful!

My Acer 9423 has no picture or sound

Try remove ram memories, they should be under screwed cover at the bottom side. After a while put it back, do it very strictly. Make this all on removed battery, and power cable off. You may remove your hard drive too, then get it back. If this doesn't work, you can disassemble and check if the screen cables are well connected. They loose out sometimes.
