Try installing the XP Codec Pack, it should allow you to play DVDs thru Media Player:

And I don't know how you're cleaning the registry, but I suggest using CCleaner-Slim:

Was your sound ever working properly? Make sure you're installing the correct driver.

Copy & paste this address: ftp://ftp.dell.com/Pages/Drivers/optiplex-gx620.html#Audio

"I have tried a couple"

Why would you try a couple? If you're running XP, download & install the XP driver.

Was your sound ever working properly? If so, what changed? Did you mess with the BIOS & disable it? If you're running XP, make sure you get the last audio driver on the list, not the one for XP x64.

So you get the windows sounds but no video?

Does anything at all show on the monitor when you start up the computer? Did you make any changes to the video settings?

If you have both a video card and on-board video, try both ports.

The scan said something about a mpeg-2 decoder. Did some checkin and decided to download the media classic version. I play the cd's on the windows 11 and the dvd's on classic. I also had some registry issyes I had to fix first but it cleaned up nicely. Thanks
