    Actually, my norton anti-virus free trial just expired, and I have no protection right now. Do you think it's a virus? And, should I purchase and re-new my norton subscription?

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Often device failure in a laptop would be a driver problem as in your concern of no sound. It is very rare for the sound hardware to go bad specially in a Sony.

Even if there are no problems (yellow or red marks) under the "Sound, video and game controllers" in your Device Manager, it is possible that:

  • IRQ conflict. Pls verify that the IRQ assigned to the sound device is not shared;
  • multiple instance/installation of the sound driver. Verify in Device Manager, View tab, Show hidden devices. If there are any multiple drivers/installation as indicated by #?, delete/uninstall all duplications and reboot;
  • if a clean/fresh/single install of the driver would not be corrective, then in some extreme cases, a re-install of the OS may be required;
  • as earlier stated, hardware rarely go bad but do occasionally. The correct procedure would be a replacement of the motherboard, an alternate workaround is to install a USB ported sound card. There are even some USB keyboards with built-in sound device such as the IP-Talky (KIP800) of A4 Tech.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back the exact model number of the Sony, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

If it works via headphones, then the problem definitely is the speakers of your portable system. It may be shorted or you may have a loose connection. In-short, you need to have it replaced. Bring your portable to a repair shop and have it replaced.

Dimension 4700 my headphones work fine but i cant

Are you have the headphones and speakers both pluged in? When you plug in headphones the speakers get muted. You need to change your sound settings back to your sound card if you use usb headphones. The plug on the front of the 4700 also automatically mutes the speakers.

Peavey minx 110 no sound from main speaker but headphone jack is ok. speaker wires are attached ok.everything on the board appears to be in good shape.amp powers up and all controls work great through...

Inside the headphone jack is a built in switching mechanism. It is there to cut off the sound to the speaker when you are using headphones to practice quietly. For some reason or another it seems as if this is no longer working correctly. One of the causes of this can be bad solder joints on the circuit board where this jack is located. Another cause is a failure of the jack itself. If you are capable, Take the circuit board out and have a look. Hope this helps.
