Hi there,

I use Windows Vista, 32-bit.

Yesterday the speakers on my Dell laptop stopped working. I tried restarting the computer, no change. Tried plugging in headphones, and here's the weird part:

Sound works FINE on headphones, but doesn't come out of speakers. I went through the control panel to sound (Conrol/Hardware and Sound/ Sound) and tried to fiddle around with things, but that didn't help at all.

hi,,, right click on the volume icon in the tray select sounds and make the speakers the default device,,, if this does not work then click on start menu ,,, type device manager into search box,, click on it when highlighted,,, in d/m click on sounds video and games controllers,,, when in there uninstall the drivers for your sound devices and restart the pc,,, fresh drivers will load on start up,,, then see if the sound works,,, if not then your speakers could have gone west :huh:
good luck.
