Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook

Lenovo T61 audio out connector broken

I have a Lenovo T61. It was plugged into some headphones. I tripped over the cord and it fell (fortunately off a low table, onto carpet, and on its side). The headphone jack bent, and when I plugged a good jack in, it went in easily and no sound. I assume the contact point is no longer touching the jack. Can I open this thing up and fix that part?

Yes, the laptop can be taken apart and the auido/microphone card be replaced. However, opening up a laptop requires removing a lot of parts. Also not every laptop assembles and disassembles the same way. I would recommend letting someone else do this unless you have any experience with repairing laptops.

    Thanks for the comment. I didn't want to get too technical and totally loose you by giving steps to disassemble a laptop, and those steps actaully be in a different order for your laptop. Let me know how everything goes.

If you want the solution to your problem, I need the info off of the bottom of the laptop.

Using Lenovo ThinkPad T61 6458-GW4 as an example;

Lenovo = Manufacturer (IBM)
ThinkPad = Series
T61 = Subseries
6458 = Machine Type
GW4 = Model

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/guides-and-manuals/default.page?

I will then find the Drivers download page for YOUR Lenovo, and the Audio driver.

Don't care what Device Manager states. Need to reinstall the Audio driver.

Post back in a Comment.

I was given "ALTEC LANSING ATP3 MULTIMEDIA 3PC SPEAKERS " However, It is missing the cable that plugs into the "input" that connects it to the PC. I realize I could probably buy one...


The cord you are looking for, that plugs into the "input" of the speaker and the speaker output (green) audio connector of your sound card looks like a plug for a pair of headphones. It will have the same type of connector on both ends, the male connector.

it is a 3.5mm male mini stereo plug at both ends.

Headphones have two type of plugs, the 3.5mm or the 1/4 inch jacks. The headphones for personal audio devices like an mp3 player, ipod or the like have a 3.5 mm, most older and some newer receivers have the bigger 1/4 inch jack for headphones.

so look at a pair of headphones, notice the plug on it, and then find one that has that same plug but on both ends of the cord.

If you need more help let me know, and if you found this advice helpful a "FixYa" rating would be appreciated.
