    I managed to fix it, there was some setting in Volume Control's advanced settings that muted the internal speakers that I unchecked

    Forgive me for double posting, but I took a screenshot of my volume control configuration that made my internal speakers work again.

    I still can't get mine to work, though by the responses to this topic, this must not be a very big problem for most people. I really don't think my speakers could be broken, i only got my laptop a few months ago and even then i hardly ever used my internal speakers. I just had them working a week ago too. Well i guess i'll just wait till someone who knows how to fix this problem has their speakers malfunction too. If anyone has some information it would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    edit: i reinstalled the sigmatel high definition audio codec driver, but there are other audio devices in my device mamager, perhaps those need new drivers? lets see, there is one called "audio codecs", "legacy audio drivers", "legacy video capture devices" "media control devices" "sigmatel high definition audio codec" and "video codecs". are any of theese relates, and if so, where might i get drivers for them.

    Just found this old thread via google. I have the same problem. I have a Dell E1505 running XP. The headphone jack works but the internal computer speakers do not. Here's what I know:

    (1) it's not the speakers. I've swapped an identical set of working speakers.
    (2) it doesn't appear to be a software or driver problem. My settings look identical to those of another E1505, and I have tried re-installing drivers several times.
    (3) The MB is not fried. HOWEVER, the jacks themselves are soldered onto the MB. A metal piece inside one of the jacks, the one into which I plug my headphones, seems to be permanently pressed into the side of the open cylinder into which I insert the phones. Now, when you insert headphones, the speakers automatically turn off. Is it possible that my (our) problem is that the MB is fooled into thinking that headphones are always plugged in, due to the metal having flattened within the jack? (I hope that made sense.) If so, is there any way to replace the headphone jack without replacing the MB? It seems like it's a non-removable piece of the MB. I have no experience soldering computer hardware.

    Many thanks for you help!

    This thread is older than the internets themselves. It needs to die.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    EDIT: Please don't post in two-year old threads. If you still have this problem, create a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
