Re: MY laptop speakers (internal ones) have broken
Go into systems and see if there is a yellow exclamation point on the soundcard if so just update the drivers.
Also go into the control panel and check to see what the output hardware is.
Usually it's a setting if both the headphones and the speakers dont' work then it's just a matter of somthing to do with the software.
I've never heard anyone blowing their computer speakers plus if the headphones don't work then it's definatly a setting that got changed.
I have a feeling it's in the properties of sound and the output is not correct or it is empty.

You may have accidently turned off the internal speakers, the options need to be changed, or the sound volume off. Go to the lower right were the ICON of the speaker is located. Right click and select Volume Mixer. Look to see if under Speakers, the internal option is available. Make certain the slide (volume) is up all the way and go from there. Check all options there and if no sound after all of that, you may need to update the sound drivers from the manufacturer.
if you sound comes on when external speakers are plugged in chances are its not a driver issue
you internal speakers could be blown
if they were blown you would still hear distorted sound coming from them
is you internal speakers on mute?
or maybe on really low volume
you can also go into my computer
right click on background
and if you dont see anything with yellow question marks over it
its not a driver issue
im almost certain its a volume issue with your internal speakers
There was a problem with the internal speakers with this model. Firstly, try a pair of external speakers plugged into the sound port, if these work , the issue lies with the internal ones.
If there is no sound through the external speakers, check that you have the sound driver installed, that the volume is set using the FN and F keys and that the sound icon on the desktop bar does not have a x through it indicating it is disabled.
You can download an updated sound driver from the Dell site, although i think Windows 7 comes with its own sound driver for this.
If the problem points to the internal speakers, you have a few choices: Return the laptop to Dell under warranty (if it is under warranty) Try to obtain a set of internal speakers and replace these Takr the laptop to a computer shop and get them to check the internal speakers and repair if necessary
distorted sound from external speakers or internal speakers?
isolate please. remove external speakers if you have one. just troubleshoot on the internal speakers alone.
uninstall the audio drivers. install the latest one. if fails. download then flashed the latest bios.
run diagnostics extended test to check the internal speakers. if also fails then replace the internal speakers.
I have a 700m, so I'm real familiar with the system. I see one of 2 possibilities. The headphone jack has a switch that disables the on-board speakers, if that is stuck or broken, then the jack/switch must be replaced. (Big hassle)
The other is easier to troubleshoot, then connection from the speakers to the MB goes through the Right hinge cover. Take the hinge cover off, check for broken wires (I has one, ***** to splice too)
