Well a quick explanation is this dvd audio is much much cleaner that lets say mp3's. herefore it is going to be toned down. It is like listening to a tape in a cassete player then turning on Dolby NoiseReduction so there is no more hiss. This is normal. Just how Dvd's are made and the quality that goes into the sound!

Dolby surround sound will not work off the speakers in the laptop. You would need to plug in external speakers for the true experience. That may be why you are having such low volume as it is trying to send some of the noise to various speakers that dont exist. Change your speaker config so the laptop knows you only have stereo speakers.

Your sound card built into the laptop could very well support dolby, but unless oyu have the proper speaker config it just wont work :thumbsup:

Grinler is right. First you need to find out if your sound card supports.Dolby digital, DTS or reg Dolby surround. If you have alot of inputs on your audio card you probably do But if you only have one or 2 probably not. Like I have 7 but that on a SB audigyzs. And placing 2 extra speakers does not mean it is "surround sound" it has to be properly transfered through each speaker to cacth what sound belongs where.

I think im confusing both of you. Ok i have the support for 5.1 surround sound 7.1 and so on on my card. I just dont have the speakers. Im planning on getting some though. Its ok i see "you have to have the speakers to get the quality".

I do see what you are saying though. My laptop has setting for many different types of audio speaker such as:headphones,5.1 surround sound and many others. Just that i have to have the speakers to set it. Right now im confusing myself (lol)
