The DELL site is the safest site to get your drivers. ALWAYS try to get drivers from the original manufacturer first.

Speakers are not working in dell inspiron 6000


Please connect an external speaker or headphones and check if you get sound. If sound works then the issue is with the onboard speakers in the laptop.

If sound does not work with the external speakers or headphones then the issue could be with the sound card driver or settings.

Internal speakers do not emit sound but I can hear w/ headphones


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)

Laptop dell inspiron 1525 sound only when headphones connected


If you can here sound in headphones, but not through the speakers, most likely the phone jack switch is bad. The whole jack needs replacement.
Also, in some cases, it could be more then that, like Audio CODEC chip on motherboard is bad, but lets assume the best.

Headphone jack does not work


It could be a broken or cold solder on the motherboard OR the circuit on the motherboard is defective. Either way the motherboard has to be removed from the laptop to fix or replace it.

Dell Inspiron 6000 PC Audio Ports Damaged


You should have sound from the speakers at all times until headphones are plugged into the jack, the jack then overrides the speakers and allows you to listen using the headphones. If the speakers aren't working, it's because they're being overridden by the damaged jack. The only way to correct this is to replace the faulty jacks. You could get a set of external speakers, the con is they're bulky and inconvenient.

Laptop speakers stopped working


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.
