When I plug in some speakers to my laptop, everything works fine for about 4 hours, and then out of nowhere the speakers just stop working. When I unplug them, th internal speakers work just fine. It's starting to get real frustrating, I tried every other speaker I can find, including headphones, but they still won't play for about 5 more hours, then after that they stop again >.<

The laptop speakers should only be cut out when the externals are plugged in. This is done by a little switch inside the jack. If it will not switch back and the external speakers still work fine then I would say that is definitely the problem. There is not much you can do if that is stuck. All the switch really looks like is a strip of metal that is like a spring. When you push the plug in it pushes this to the side and disconnects the internal speakers. The jack is mounted on the main board so you would have to locate the proper one and solder it on or replace the main board. Short of going that far I would see if inserting a jack a few times will get it to spring back. If there has been any spills on the laptop or it is gummed up inside you can use proper electronics connector cleaner. This is risky as it can damage the plastics but doesn't take much at all to work. I would look inside the plug and see if you can see debris or gunk. I'd also try knocking it. This is literally knocking around the switch like you are knocking on a door. You don't want to hit it really hard but just a few short sharp knocks will loosen things up with out causing damage. If you knock like the landlord looking for rent money then it might ;-]
First check that it's for sure caused by this water. go to control panel>system>device manager and see if everything is working fine. Look for any question marks missing drivers etc.. Next I would advice you to plug some speaker phones in slot on laptop and see if you can hear anything through them. If you do it means that speakers themselves are the problem. Maybe connector somewhere or little thing like that. If you can't hear anything through speaker phones you are in trouble. If one of the chips (possibly south bridge chip ) got wet and that's why you get this trouble you may get a lot more. Take the battery out and try and blow it with hair dryer or something. I would advice taking it to the service after you have done everything....
try these. remove ac adapter and battery. press and hold on the power button for 15 seconds. plug back ac adapter and battery. download the latest bios for your system from the manufacturer's website. if still same problem try a system restore from the time when everything was working fine. try an external speakers check if the audio jacks are working. if all fails replace mobo. if external speakers ok then replace laptop internal speakers.
Fred if you get sound to your headset from the same port you get no sound for your speakers, it is the speakers and not your headset. Are there any speaker lights on at all? If not maybe your power supply for the speakers is bad.Try a different set of speakers in the same computer and see what happens. If they work, the speakers are bad. Otherwise you have some strange connection problem.

i have this too. my speakers are altec lansing. but using headphones and plugging them in and thats the only way i can here. it would probably work for you. I think if you buy speakers the sound will work out o them.
