Audio problem when watching DVDs

Dear all,

I have an annoying problem where the volume when watching a DVD keeps "resetting" to a lower volume when it gets to loud or if its quiet. then slowly increases again.

does anyone know what it is?

I have windows xp and acer arcade.

thanks

actually, i think i might have found the culprit...under "settings" in ACER arcade, the "dynamic range compression" was set to "noisy environment" whatever that is, and the output mode was set to "dolby surround" whereas i only have 2.1 speakers...maybe that was it?
