That front panel jack option is probably a feature included in some Dell software that you installed on the computer. Go to and find the audio drivers and install all of the drivers that look like they would apply to your system.

    It is a Dell Inspiron 1526 & the question is -- Can I purchase speakers that it will support so my husband can hear the music being played on the DVD in the computer's drive?

    That is in most cases possible and advised because most of laptops have very simple audio functionality and quality.
    You have three options
    1. Buy an amplified speaker set(there are several different kinds and combinations) that connects to your laptops "Line out" audio jack(The green one, the pink connector is for the mic.).
    2. Get a USB speaker set, which connects to one of the USB connectors on your laptop. Usually not difficult to install.
    3. connect your laptop to a micro stereo system or a home cinema or even a TV! This option requires a little more knowledge of audio/video functionality, but is not very hard for someone capable of following instructions!

    Wish you success!

    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.

    go into msconfig and then click on the startup tab. Click on the button that says disable all and then apply the changes. Let the laptop reboot and when it gets back into windows try to go into hibernation mode again and see if it still reboots on you. If it does then its an operating system issue. If it doesn't reboot on you, then go back into msconfig and only enable the programs that you feel you need to run when windows boots up.
