Question about Televison & Video
I have an Acer aspire 9423 laptop with philips DVD-RAM SDVD8821. When I play dvd's the sound is awful -it used to be OK. If I copy the DVD to the hard drive and play it from there its fine. I use power DVD but have also tried vasrious othr players eg VLC media player, winows media player -all with the same result.
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.

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.
