Hey,

So on my Dell E1505 laptop there is a sound jack on the side. When I restart it, the sound jack will play sound normally through headphones. However, after a certain period of time, the jack just stops playing. A high pitched whine will take over. If I restart the computer, the process begins again.

I know how to disassemble the computer so I could get access to the motherboard if you needed me to. I'm just not sure what's wrong with it.

Have you tried updating the sound drivers? The dell website should have them.

Sound drivers are fully updated.

I talked to a computer professional and had him look at it. He says the circuit is probably shorting out everytime I remove the jack. I have a solder and am able to access the motherboard (for a fact, since I've done it before). If possible, I'd like to have people help me out while try to repair it.
