Hey

it seems to me that you have a hardware issue with your laptop either a cable is unplugged or there's something up with the built in audio card. In any case you will want to bring this laptop to a certified professional as disassembling and reassembling a laptop is much harder compared to a desktop PC. That said if you feel you are up to to the challenge and it does not concern you that you may damage your hardware you can certainly find a tutorial on how to disassemble your laptop and replug all the necessary connections which i feel is the issue with your laptop.

Just to confirm, could you plug-in a set of external speakers to see if you don't have any issues.
If shaking it corrects the problem, there's a good chance that there is a loose connection with your speaker. Unfortunately, with an embedded speaker system, there might not be a lot you can do.

I wouldn't shake your laptop too much, you may end up with a bigger problem than occasional loss of sound.

Good-luck.

Yeah that's a very good idea JC, I never thought of that but yes you would indeed be able to deduct wether it is the card or the connection that is faulty. One more thing it could be the card's IRQ but that is unlikely as this is a laptop and everything is embedded i think it is a connection issue.
