OK, so here's the deal: I have a G61 HP notebook pc running Windows 7. A few weeks ago I noticed that sound was not coming out of my earphones plugged into the output jack at the front of the computer. The sound only emanates from the inbuilt computer speakers, even when the earphones are plugged into the output jack. Also none of the 3 lights on the front of my computer work. The 3 lights are: Power Light; Battery Light; and Drive Light. Anyone help?
I have run a Windows update and all drivers are current. I have also put the microphone setting in Sound to default but still the problem persists. I did have some work done on the computer a few weeks ago and the problem may originate from that. The first work that was done by a technician was to put in a new fan in. The second thing that I did was to buy a new original HP battery so that my battery would always be at 100%. Before I had a battery that was a copy and therefore unreliable. Battery works fine now and the icon always says fully charged.
Any of you wiz kids out there throw some light on all this?
