Only getting certain sounds and not voice may indicate you are only hearing
the back channels.  Have you checked where your speakers are plugged in and
run a test on them?

Why did you reinstall Windows?  Have you run any programs that might have
altered your DVD drive?  Have you checked your settings for the IDE
controllers and the DVD drive in Device Manager?  Do you have another DVD
drive you could try?  Any firmware updates for your current DVD drive?
