    I have the same prob. no sound from on board speakers, and when the mic
    or sound jack are wiggled I can SOMETIMES get sound, I believe that the
    computer had external speakers attached then someone tripped on the
    cord JERKING the connector all to ....well you know, how ever no one
    will fess up to this.

    I would like to try to replace the jacks (both are one unit, soldered
    to main board) however I can not find a vendor for the parts,
    (sound/mic jack)

    I also need an illustrated parts breakdown to take the dog gone thing
    apart without breaking anything. any and all help appreciated.

When you insert the headphone jack into the green socket it separates a silver tab and cuts power to the speakers. These things never break. The only other options to why headphones have no single is they are either muted, or the sound is pegged down.

To check the sound levels on any computer, click or double click the speaker icon in your system tray near the digital clock display. If you don't have one, let me know. This action brings up the sound levels for all sound enabled devices on your system.

First, check that Master is not muted by a check box selected or the volume slider all the way down. Next look at the Wave slider for the same thing. If you are playing back a CD, look at the CD slider and then the volume control in your CD App for a mute box check or volume slider there pegged down. That should cover the sliders. For the mic you will notice a slider for it and that its muted by default, there's a reason but its related to feedback loops in sound, that's all.

Next, open Control Panel, click or double click on Sound and this opens several property sheets, the first one shows the built in devices for your laptop, each of the three should be filled. There at times a page for setting mic response to your voice. If you see a setup for your mic recording go ahead and run through that just to set the microphone sensitivity.

If it still does not work for you, I'm not sure what to say. I'll give it some thought so don't rate this until you hear from me again.

    The blade inside the jack that normally separates and cuts off sound to the onboard speakers and allows sound to the headphones may be bent away from their normally closed resting point where sound from the speaker would then be powered. All you need to test this is to insert a paper clip end into the jack and short the open blade with its normally closed resting spot, as you have found by wiggling the plug.

    Me, I would modify a dental pick from a hardware store and insert this to grab the sperating blade and pull it in on the jack barrel. You can probably pry this housing apart and do it that way too.

    Or, you can create a barrel shaped wad of aluminum foil and insert that into the plug to do the same thing.

I have a dell inspiron 6000 laptop - the mic is not working properly The mic port appears to be worn inside the computor as we cannot get a good connection. New mics do not fix the problem. How can I fix...


It could be damaged and you would need a new soundcard, if new mics dont work. rubbing alchol wont either so i would say if u dont want to get a new soundcard get a USB mic. hope this helps and please vote!

Speakers are not working in dell inspiron 6000


Please connect an external speaker or headphones and check if you get sound. If sound works then the issue is with the onboard speakers in the laptop.

If sound does not work with the external speakers or headphones then the issue could be with the sound card driver or settings.

In my Dell Inspiron 6400's right speakers are not working. Also the mic is not working. If i connect an external mic its working perfect. Pl help me with the speakers & mic. Thanks a lot !!


Hi. I use exactly this PC. You have to realize the mic is inbuild and not easily seen. Your external mic is also ok. About the right speakers, you'll have to check the connection on the motherboard..most likely one of the i/c has an issue. It is a rugged system and will last. Not to worry

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