Hm.. Not entirely sure. Maybe try going to the control panel and hardware and sound (might be under something different if you have XP or earlier, I am looking at my laptop but I have vista, but wherever your sound settings are) and look at the settings and make sure everything is working and all. If you haven't restarted since the problem started, definitely try that. Otherwise, all I can think of is maybe reinstalling the audio driver. On my computer that is called SoundMAX. On yours it is probably different. So that's all I can think of. I'm not sure that any of that will work but those are some of the basic things I would start off with doing if I were having the same problem. If you do reinstall the audio driver, be careful doing it. It's not like it's something that's really likely to mess up your computer or anything but you don't want to like uninstall and not know where to go to reinstall because then you really won't have it. So, yeah. That's all I've got. Hope it helps.

hi,1. first of all please check whether the mute options is checked or unchecked.2. After that go to device manager and check whether audio drivers are there or not. - Try to plug in the headphone and check whether the sound is coming or notIf there is no sound coming out of your speakers, but the headphone jack plays sound, there may be something wrong with your speakers. If this is the case, you can either use headphones or external speakers, or attempt to use the laptop's warranty to get HP to fix the speakers. Plugging and unplugging a headphone from the jack several times has supposedly caused some users' speakers to start playing sound again. 3. If the drivers are not there then go ahead install the drivers from the hp website by using the product of your computer.4. If the problem still exists then try to update the bios of your computer with the l latest version.5. Try to run the recovery of the computer and check after that.
sounds like it can be the hardware. try to uninstall and reinstall the latest audio driver then configure your speaker settings and volume settings. if this does not work, you may need to get the audio card or motherboard replaced.
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.
First try the headphones in a different machine, such as an mp3 player or cd player to make sure the headphones still work.
Try going to the start button, then settings and control panel. Then select "Sounds and Audio devices" Down at the bottom you should see "Speaker settings." Click the "Advanced" button and then select stereo headphones.
Then, place the headphones into the green audio jack (or the headphone jack up front if you have them), play some music, and then gently wiggle the jack to see if some of the sound makes it into the headphones. If not, try slowly pulling the headphones out of the jack while the music is plaaying. you might find that the jack has slipped a little and may play only if your connector is slightly pulled out or more firmly pushed in. If his helps, then your audio connector is loose and you should replce the sound card. If the card is on the motherboard, you can disabled it when you put a new card in.
If the sound is coming you have installed the driver properly
try to change the head phone jack , if doesnt help it could be the problem of your head phone socket. because when you insert the jack , circuit inside the headphone socket closes and your outside speakers will be off
