Hi,

i am not sure why the speakers to my dell e1505 stopped working on thursday afternoon. they were working fine on wednesday. i tried to re-install the drivers, but that didnt help me. the volume is not muted, and headphones work.

checked the device manager and there are no yellow triangle exclamation points next to anything.

dell e1505 winXP sp3

any suggestion would be appreicated

Did you try the speakers on another computer?

Please forgive a silly question, but have you checked to make sure sound isn't muted (it happens more often than you'd think).

i dont think so....when i run the diagnostic test, there is sound from the speakers after doing a little bit of digging, i discovered that the headphone jack has a sensor in it, and when that sensor is pressed down it mutes the speakers...i think the sensor is stuck in the down position, this would make sense because i had an external speaker attached to my computer on thursday right before it stopped working. do you know of a way to test this theory?
