Are the DVDs movie DVDs or other software. If they are movies then you probably have to install a program to view them such as PowerDVD or the free VLC media player. If the computer cannot play original software DVDs then it could be a problem with your DVD players laser lens and has to be replaced with a new DVD drive or you can buy an external USB one. Hope this helps.
You must install DVD player in your PC first, i.e. Power DVD. You can download the installer software from these links, but this is trial version, you have to buy to get the full version, or you can search a crack but use it at your own risk :
In Acer computer you should have Cyberlink PowerDVD software, please open the software and follow the below mentioned steps
To update the Cyberlink PowerDVD software:
1. Connect to the Internet. 2. Open the Cyberlink Power DVD application. 3. Click the arrow in the upper left hand corner of the window next to Cyberlink PowerDVD. 4. Click on Update Now 5. Follow the prompts to install the update.
Note: The update process may have to be repeated more than once to ensure the latest version is loaded on the computer. Reminder: Blu-ray protection software prevents Blu-ray movies from being displayed on both the notebook LCD and an external monitor at the same time.
If there are no hardware issues most probably the following are the reasons:
1. Check whether the Media Player sound is not muted.
2. Check whether the systems sound is not muted.
3. If you encounter sound problems only with dvds most probably there is no driver issue, but there can be a codec issue, install the latest version of media player and if possible install a better dvd player software.
Google AVS DVD player a freeware.
Usually when you insert the DVD you should get an autoplay menu that asks which program you want to use to play the DVD (such media player etc)
Acer usually has a bundled software that allows you to watch DVD movies it could be called WinDVD ,PowerDVD choose that program to play the film.
If you are running XP, you will need to install a DVD playback application. IN VIsta, DVD playback is native to WIndows, in XP, Dell used a program called Cyberlink PowerDVD. You can either buy PowerDVD on line or download a free DVD playback application from places like Download.com. I've had good luck with the AVS DVD player here:
