My speakers work but my headphone jack won't
The Solutions that will mostly work :
1) Go to sleep
mode - wake up ! - tada !! the headphone jack will work again .. I know
it sounds crazy.. i had the same problem..
(ie speakers onboard worked while headphones jack didnt work) usually restarting solves any problem, but this time even a restart did
not worked while putting the laptop on standby(sleep) mode and waking
it up worked !!
2) If the above does not work, uninstall the
sound drivers from device manager - restart the computer - then let
windows detect appropriate drivers by itself. Sometimes the Sigmatel
drivers(which are provided by manufacturer) do not work well compared to windows
vista's HD sound drivers. May solve the issue... Do not worry doing
this, in the worst scenario you can always download and reinstall the
dell drivers from dell support page.
Please update on firstname.lastname@example.org if the problem gets solved..
