About four days a go my battery died. I took my laptop home, plugged it in, turned it back on, and there was a strange grating sound that was very loud. I turned it off then restarted. Everything seemed fine until I tried to use my audio.... There was absolutely no sound. Not even system sounds works. I checked all of my volume settings, reinstalled my driver from the dell website, all of that, no apparent issues, still no sound. It appears the sound is working, I get no error message, but I hear nothing. And then I plugged in headphones, and realised I could hear sound, but very, very faint. If while watching something for example, someone yells, I can hear they vaguely through the headphones. I am utterly confused as to what this could possibly mean. I have a Dell Latitude C610. There were no sound issues before though the quality never was very good. Any suggestions? Appreciate any help, this is driving me nuts!
