I have sound when I plug in external speakers but nothing with my built in system speakers on my laptop. I went to device manager, system speaker properties, general tab, TYPE - system devices, MFG - standard system devices, LOCATION - on VIA PCI to ISA bridge, STATUS - no drivers are required or installed. The speakers did work then quit and now do not work.

Very few desktop computers have built-in speakers other than a small beeper on the motherboard, used for error codes at startup. You need some kind of external speakers which you plug in to the output jack on the computer's rear panel. Also, these need to be powered speakers, meaning they have a built-in amplifier. The computer's audio output signal is line level, and too low to drive speakers directly. You could plug in headphones, though, and listen to the computer that way until you get some speakers.
As you said your internal speakers are OK, then may be the problem with the external speaker. Check with another set of external speaker. if works fine then check your previous external speakers connection. if still no sound the neeed to check the motherboard.
Hi. Try plugging in an external speaker just to test the issue. It could be just the speaker of the laptop is having the problem. If you were able to hear the sound from the external speaker then the problem is the built in speaker of the computer. If there is no sound coming out to external speakers. Try to reinstall the driver of your soundcard.
This sounds like a defective audio port. In normal operation, plugging in a headphone plug breaks the connection to the speakers. On your laptop, when you pull out the plug it makes a connection, but only briefly. Unfortunately the audio port is built into the system board. I don't think you will find a software fix for this problem. Your best bet is to get a USB sound device for external speakers.
Nothing wrong with your USB ports. MagicJack has changed your audio and driver settings so it can use the sound system for phone calls. The changes exist whether the Jack device in plugged in or not. You can confirm the problem by uninstalling MagicJack and reinstalling your sound drivers. Should fix the problem. You'll probably need to contact the maker of the MagicJack device for a workaround. Might be something specific to your laptop/operating system.
EXTERNAL SPEAKERS: If your are plugging speakers into your headphone jack and they dont play, but you plug headphones into the same port and they work fine.. then it is the external speakers.
INTERNAL SPEAKERS: But if you are using the speakers in the laptop, then your speakers are probably bad. Try some software settings, but probly just bad speakers. Could also be that the speaker cord inside the laptop came unplugged from the motherboard. In which case you would have to take the laptop apart and plug it back into the motherboard.
if you want to get more sound from your laptop you need to buy external speakers. To get the best result when you are shopping for speakers look for some that take an external power source (AC adaptor that plugs into the wall)
It is possible that:
1. You may have recently installed an add-on/external device such as a multimedia keyboard which changed the audio output from internal to external;
2. The laptop's internal speaker might have gone dead (highly unlikely but still a possibility) - try plugging in external speakers or a headset and check;
3. Most if not all laptops uses a female stereo babyphone jack to connect to external speakers. This jack has a built-in switch that cuts off internal speaker if an external is plug in. If you are using eternal or headset from time to time, it is possible that the switch might have locked to external and does not switch back to the internal;
4. You may have a hardware issue specifically the sound card/chipset. This of course would require an inshop repair which may be better off with an authorized service center. At worst is have the entire laptop replace if it is confirmed to be a hardware issue.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
