    My DVD player in my Acer Laptop will play audio CDs OK but will not play sound on a DVD. The picture is OK. All other sounds are also OK, I can play music on I tunes and my system sounds work fine. I have tried doing a windows XP System Restore and that made no difference. I have looked in Device Manager to see if there are any problems showing, but everything appears to be fine. The default device for playing DVDs is Realplayer or Windows Media Player, and neither of them will play DVD sounds.

    The DVD is a TSST Corporation CD/DVDW TS-L532A.

    Get Picture but no Audio from DVD player, yet it will give me Audio from my CDs. I have removed and re-downloaded my players but no help. All my settings in the Control panel says no problems. Check all my external wiring it's OK.

    I'm having the same problem. I have an Emprex DVD burner which plays audio CDs and it plays the picture on DVDs, but there's no sound with DVDs. This is true in both Showtime and RealPlayer. I have downloaded the K-lite codecs pack and it didn't help.

    Am I supposed to do something with K-Lite other than just install it? I can't make head nor tail of their so-called "instructions", which are all about how some notional graph has roots and leaves.

Tom, the issue is with expired codec of your player. This is a software level issue. Two solutions: 1. set your system date to Nov. 15, 2006, then try playing it again. or... 2. download the codec from ***this should solve your issue***

I removed realtek audio player from my computer not knowing what it is? my itunes does'nt play now. HELP Please.

You need to install your loptops audio driver or restore it to the point where sound is audible on your loptop.To restore your os or drivers to it's original state, you need to click on ( start ). Then click on ( All Programs ). Then click on ( accessories ).Then click on ( system tools ). Then click on ( system restore ). And the last thing you'll do is to select a recently saved restore point that you think your computer was working properly before it encountered this problem. Have a nice day and i hope this could have a positive outcome.

I have been using Cyberlink Powerproducer Express for many years which after producing the appropraye files, it passes down to and opens Cyberlink - Power Producer 2 Gold to generate the DVD. For some...

If recently you have made any hardware or software changes eliminate that and then check how it works.
Do system Restore to a previous date when your computer was working fine to do that go to Start - all programs - accesories - system tools - system restore select a date when your computer was working fine follow the on screen steps.
if you have win vista then start-search type system restore and do the same thing.
If this doesnt helps try to uninstall and reinstall the software.

No sound when playing DVD

Here is a simple way to find out if it is the program that you are using or actually your computer. What I am going to do is list a link at the bottom for you to install and try and watch your movies on. This is called VLC it is a movie player with a bunch of different codec's. You can think of a codec as a way to translate the designed language of the movie into audio and video. Different movies are written in different ways and not all programs have all of the correct codecs. But anyway VLC is jammed packed full of codecs. I use it personally, never had a issue it works amazing. This is my quickest and easiest solution.

No sound in Vista Media Centre

Hi Nickluck
Depending on the OS and Drivers, DirectX version I presume 9c, check your AverMedia TV card, in other slot PCI, and reinstall drivers, if required. Should work.
but, drivers, too for the Video Card, if Nvidia? download the latest.
Good Luck
