How to fix an audio jack on a laptop? / What's your diagnosis
If somebody could help me out...I'm pretty sure I blew something up when I plugged the output of a guitar amplifier to the headphone jack of the laptop because since then, when something is plugged in that jack, (speakers or headphones) nothing comes out. When nothing is plugged in, the sound correctly comes out of the two internal laptop speakers. Does anybody understand what happened
Tips for a great answer:
and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Acer
Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support).
Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating
system when requested. Download and install the Audio drivers.
Try the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve many sound and audio issues.
Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and
in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes).
Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download
and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's
a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats
and media. It's totally FREE.
Maybe your speakers on the laptop are bad or the
cable that connects it to the motherboard is loose. You will have to
take the laptop apart to see. You can always buy a set of usb speakers
that plug into your usb port. Try Tiger Direct at:
When the site comes up type: laptop usb speakers in
the search box and click GO. Sort the returned results by Price Low to

have you tried this control panel sounds and
audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop
down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to
expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device
(enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps
