Well, good luck. I would still try and install that link I posted when you get a chance to do so.

I called them and told them the normal sounds for the computer is fine but the volume for playing mp3's as well as a DVD SUCK! We have both of the BF laptops the walmart HP and the CC Toshiba. The ONLY thing about the Toshiba I do not like is the volume.. No problem with the HP laptop it has Altech Lansing speakers:( We uninstalled and reinstalled some drivers and it did nothing. His advice??? To hook up speakers to it... I told him that will work real well when I am travling and want to watch a DVD!!!!! Mine AND my friends is both the same....Very little speaker volume.

Well, some good news for me -- maybe this will help others. I went back and reinstalled WinDVD from the restore disk and all my sound came back. Then I uninstalled it and same sound problem. I figured it was a Codec problem, so I went back and installed the AC3 file that someone on here posted with WinDVD uninstalled and sound came back, just was a little quiet. I boosted the gain a little in the Codec itself and all is well now. Thanks for the help. Everything is running great now! Adam

When you install it it installs a little configuration program in your Start Menu under "AC3Filter". I went in there and turned the "Master" volume up to 10. I also picked my speaker setup while I was in there. There is lots of stuff to do in there, but not knowing what it's all for, I just left everything else alone.
