5.1 audio mix in media players

Hello Geeks! I'm writing on this site in hopes of finding a solution to an "odd" problem. It came to my attention that while watching a DVD in 5.1 sound in the "Videolan" media player, the voices were removed and I was left with only the music and sound effects. And see, to me- that was wonderful! However, I had to do a complete system restore (this was because of something unrelated). And now, while using the media player, voices are there but are very faint. I want it back to how it was before.

I'm posting here because I KNOW that this is not specific to Videolan. As, before the system restore, the "no voices" effect happened in windows media player as well.

I've experimented with my speaker options and funny thing- I can get the 5.1 audio mix to PLAY CORRECTLY (as in, everything at a normal volume level)

But, as I sometimes enjoy the music used in films, I'd like to try to get my computer back to how it worked before the complete system restore.

If it helps, I'm on a HP laptop, with windows xp.

please help me get rid of those annoying voices :)

Some DVDs have separate audio tracks that contain only the background music and sound. Have you tried changing audio tracks?

Thanks for responding! Yes, I have tried changing audio tracks and of the DVDS I've tested, none have that function. But, as I said- somehow, with the 5.1 audio mix on, the voices were removed. So, I'm trying to get that back.
