Question about Dell Inspiron 700M Notebook
I have a Dell Inspiron 700m. My laptop speakers have always worked unit recently, when i used some headphones to view a training video for work. After removing the headphones, the laptop speakers did not work. I do get audio from the headphones when I plug them back in to the laptop. Thanks for any help. Mike
Hello fadesit, It sounds like the headphone socket is sticking/defective. When you insert the jack into the socket a contact is broken to disable the external speakers, when you remove the jack the connection is resumed. Due to the amount of work this will take and the possibility of causing other problems in the process I would check to see if the warranty is still in effect first. If not then the next thing to ask is do you have the tools, mechanical aptitude, patience and ability to risk damaging your laptop to do this yourself? If you want to go the do it yourself route let me know and I?ll post some disassembly instructions later tonight otherwise please don?t forget to rate the posting.

After reading the problems you posted, as I had had the same one, I took my fist and hit around the headphone jack, and guest what, it worked.
It may not work in all cases but worth a try. I'm sure it might come loose again, but the problem in my case was definitely the headphone jack issue and my hitting lightly around that area it seemed to have restored things for now.
Thanks for the help.

Hi I had the same problem what is happening is the speaker wire funs up through the hinge and what happens from open and shutting it so many times is it disconnects you have to take apart the laptop to repair it. would suggest finding a breakdown of it. if you cant find a site the little round pads on the monitor come off and you have to unscrew those and one hidden screw left of the wifi light you have to peel the sticker back. good luck
