    Obvious Things First:-



    Is your volume up enough on the laptop or computer itself



    Is the volume up enough in Windows (Near clock speaker icon)



    Is the volume muted? Icon mentioned above has a small red circle on it?

Speakers stopped working


First check that it's for sure caused by this water. go to control panel>system>device manager and see if everything is working fine. Look for any question marks missing drivers etc.. Next I would advice you to plug some speaker phones in slot on laptop and see if you can hear anything through them. If you do it means that speakers themselves are the problem. Maybe connector somewhere or little thing like that. If you can't hear anything through speaker phones you are in trouble. If one of the chips (possibly south bridge chip ) got wet and that's why you get this trouble you may get a lot more. Take the battery out and try and blow it with hair dryer or something. I would advice taking it to the service after you have done everything....

The microphone jack of my Dell Inspiron 1100 seems to be malfunctioned. When I plug in a microphone, the other side does not hear anything. I tried several different microphones and none of them worked....


Check if the correct recoding device is selected on sound properties, and verify if mic is mute.Test mic using the sound recording program.
Try to uninstall and reinstall the sound driver.
Perform diagnostic on the audio using the drivers and utility disc. if mic is not working on the diagnostic tool then need to replace the sound card.

Earphone plug is not working


do your speakers have their own volume knob? sounds like its turned way down,master volume in control panel under audio devices,also volume controll in the sound card software ,nvidia,realtek,maestro,ect. whitch ever one you have,if they are all turned up ,try turning it up useing your hotkeys on your keyboard,if none of that works,uninstall all of your audio drivers,and reinstall them from the support web site at hp.com,the wires that go to that headphone jack inside are very small,doesnt take much to damage them,droping it a couple times is enough,reinstalling the software is the best chance,if that doesnt do anything ,you will have to go inside,if this only happens when your using the optical drive then disregard everything i just said,and replace it.make sure its locked in securely

Sound Device not working but everything seems to be installed and working


you might want to try going into the bios of your computer (usually pressing delete when your computer first comes on) and looking in there to make sure your sound device is turned on.

Hard drive or fan click?


Very unlikely that you are hearing any fan turn off and on since these are temperature controlled varable speed devices, not serviced by a relay that you can hear.
Some hard drives are audible even when working normally so that is not necessarily a sign of a dying drive.

Check your system settings to see if the drive is set to park and turn off too often.
I keep mine set at 30 minutes so it isn't cycling more than needed or running all the time.
