SOLVED No sound when playing movies from the dvd player

A friend gave me a Gateway laptop that no longer getting sound when he plays movies from his DVD player. It does does music from CD's as well as anything already on his hard drive. He told me it did play sound in the past. His computer's battery is bad and he often just turns the computer off without shutting it down and whemn he turns it back on it periodically runs a disk check. How can I get the sound back?

Thanks for any help

    You can confirm this with something like VLC. check if you have sound playing DVD's with it. What are you using to play anyway?
