DVD/CD Volume level dropped after running Region 1

  Cluelessone 16:03 10 Dec 2008

Ladies and Gentlemen your assistance please:
Sony Vaio FJ3N running XPsp3:

Put in a Region 1 DVD and was prompted to install Interactual Player2 to give full functionality/access to the disk. Foolishly agreed. DVD subsequently ran, but I needed full volume to hear it and it had changed my screen res……

Tried to change the screen res to discover usual 5 settings were now reduced to 3!

Uninstalled “Interactual Player” to no avail. Finally completed a system restore. 5 levels of screen res now returned, but still need volume level at max to hear any CD/DVD properly. Other Windows sounds not associated with the DVD/CD play at normal levels.

The only other thing of note is that my DVD region is now 2 with no changes left..

Any tips?

It is set to max on Windows Media Player if that's what you mean.....
