Question about Dell Inspiron E1705, Intel Core 2 Duo T5300 , 17" WSXGA+ LCD, 1GB DDR2 SDRAM, 256MB ATI V... PC Notebook
This is the strangest thing I have trying to resolve for weeks. The sound is fine when listening to anything from the internet or stored on the hard drive. But when watching a dvd or listening to a cd through the laptop speakers, the sound is distorted and scratchy/skipping, the video is perfect, but when I attach my external speakers, the sound is fine again. I have tried the trouble shooting, reinstalled codecs. I did not knowlingly install any programs, it just started one day when I went to watch a dvd.
This could be a couple of Things.
First if it,s DVD Player related. it could be that The DVD Player, needs the laser Head Cleaning. Any dust-grease or similar on the Laser head, will cause Distortion. The second option is the DVD Player itself. Some DVDs are removable Drives. with An eject Rom button underneath the Laptop. This will enable you to remove. Check the drives connection Pins At the rear of the Drive. ** Clean with a Bud/Swab moistened in lighter fluid/Meths** replace the Drive.
The other possible problem would be with your Laptops Sound Card/ Board if Fitted.
Finally The problem could be related to a motherboard Fault i.e Bad earth or other internal Component Fault.
Go simplist first ( clean the DVDs Laser Head.
Then Remove the actual DVD Drive if Possible. ** Check Connections At rear** Ensure that the drive has not been dislodged from its connector to laptop mainboard.
Regards And Good-Luck.
