    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.

Hello. My Head phone jack is not working. I have a Sony Vaio Laptop and the speakers on it are working fine. When I put the head phones in it I don't hear a thing. I've up dated the drivers and it seems to...

Sounds like your headphones may need to be replaced. I'm assuming they don't work with anything else.

Try cleaning the plug with a lightly dampened paper towel and use a can of compressed air to clean out the jack on the laptop. If that doesn't work, try another set of headphones.
