I just updated many of my drivers for my WinXP Compaq 2580 Presario Laptop. My speakers were working perfectly fine earlier today, now after the update, I can't hear anything. I have tried troubleshooting, and still nothing. Even when I try roll back on my sound device it doesn't work. I have expanded my Volume Control and nothing is muted. Another wierd thing is that when I plug in headphones I can hear sound, but when I unplug them, I hear nothing. Please reply with any info or help at all, thanks. I love you!

Well the fact that there is sound at the head phone jack is good!!

Have you expanded the volume control icon to see if ANY functions are muted or turned all the way down?

any luck? i have the exact same problem, except my problem started when I plugged in my headphones, since I took them out my laptop speakers are no longer working. I can hear fine through headphones but no sound is coming out of the speakers.

i have an Acer Aspire 3002WLCi laptop, bought second hand last month. any help is appreciated!

F44,

Your problem sounds like it is a failure of the headphone jack?

When you plug in the jack, the male plug pushes open a small switch that cuts off the external speakers. If the switch fails to return to the original position when the plug is removed, then...no external sound.

This will be hard to verify or repair without opening the case!
