Help dvd sound wont work!! on my gateway fx7020 with vista

by phoenixrage / April 25, 2008 1:28 PM PDT

My dvds sound wouldnt work with windows media player or windows media center. The picture would show but there wouldnt be any voices only some music and background noise for some reason. I already tried to change the settings but it still wont work. It did work once when i put on the subtitles but they get annoying so i turned them off. when i turned off the subtitles the voices were also gone and left me with some weird background noise thing. pleas help thanks.

Which Vista?

Not all play DVD. Try VLC PLAYER to test if that works.

Have you looked in the audio settings section

of your control panel, FP? It's possible that the volumes for some frequency ranges are set too high, while most of them are set low. The other possibility that comes to mind (to a non-Vista person; I'm on XP Media edition) is that the system is set to be muted, and somehow the activation of subtitles is also suppressing the mute setting.

Hope this helps! -- Dave K.
