Audio Problem with Headphones.

I recently had a repair shop work on my Macbook (problems with the fans/overheating) and ever since I got my computer back, I've noticed that when I plug my headohones in, the audio shuts off completely and any music or video I'm watching will freeze. As soon as I unplug the headphones, the sound will work and the video will resume.

I'm baffled -- any ideas?

I belive the logic board you just had replaced for the over heating is defective and you need to take it back and have it replaced again.

I have a constant beeb beeb ----beeb beeb---beeb beeb from my speakers or headphones but not from the computer tower when the speakers or headphones are removed. Is this a audio problem with PC or a virus?

Hi there
A couple of points.
Many system boxes no longer have built in speakers, and if they do they are very simple and simply used for POST errors and other alarms eg CPU fan failed, overheating etc. If there is a pattern to the beeps, you need to check against your BIOS codes to ensure nothing serious is happening.
If your system is working completely normally otherwise, then I would suspect an audio problem, which might be resolved by removing and re-installing the audio driver from the disk supplied.

Lucas it seems that the 3.5 mm jack is a bit unglued from the motherboard surface. Try to move the jack in different positions and see how that evolves.

Reboot the machine and press either F2 or DEL to enter in BIOS.

Under one of the settings ( it's in advanced -> fan settings. in my current bios ) You should be able to choose what percentage the fan speed runs at.

If this doesn't help, some serious hardware damage may have been done when the laptop overheated.

Installing software will not not fix the issue. Most of the information on these types of programs are all visible in the bios under hardware status anyway.

hope this helps,

When audio jack is plugged into mac a high pitch whine is heard across speaker system

I'm thinking it could be a feedback loop. Maybe for some reason when you plug in the headphones it does not turn off the speakers but ramps up the mircophone. Clean you your jack to make sure it detects the headphone plug right and turns off the speakers. If that doesn't help you may have a logic board issue. If you want to replace it yourself, Here is an Macbook Repair Guide that shows how to open a Macbook. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Macbook Repair.

My hp presario v2000 battery/fan does not work

The fan most likely needs to be replaced. When the computer overheats as a safety feature it shuts down. If you do not know how to replace the fan take it into a repair shop. The does not seem to be the problem.
