I can see the pictures Ok but get no sound when I try to play a DVD on my HP Compaq laptop. I can hear music Ok so presume it's nothign to do with the sound card. I've checked the regional setting for the DVD and the laptop and they are both the same.
any ideas please?

Which OS and which DVD player software you are using.

In the meantime, VLC Player should suffice until we sort this out.

"Vista Home Basic" does not come with a DVD player.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
