Ahh, yes, with these you have to remove the entire plastic piece with the speaker covers. If you need anything else let me know.

When i move the screen of the laptop the sound goes off

I know the answer to this one from experience, one of the wires to the speakers is broken in the area of the right hinge cover.
Remove the hinge cover and you will see the bundle of wires for the speakers and LEDs on the LCD assemble, carefully inspect the wires and you should find the broken one. If you are VERY careful and have a steady hand, you can splice the wire back together and have sound. Once I fixed mine, I also lightly re-routed the wires to limit the amount of chafing.

My Dell 710m laptop no longer produces sound from the speakers. Headphones work fine, but nothing from the speakers. All sound/volume settings are on. Any advice?

Yes, since I have one, I know where the likely failure point is on the system. The wires for the speakers go thru the right hinge assembly and if you remove the LCD hinge cover you'll likely find a broken wire there at the chafing point (That is where mine broke) so very careful wire splicing and a bit of shrink wrap did wonders.

Right hinge coming apart

This is a normal wear and tear issue with Dell lappys.
You can take off the hinge cover (it's just above the keyboard) and attempt to tighten the hinges down.
If that doesn't work, then the hinges themselves are wearing out, and need to be replaced, so you'd have to contact dell in that case buddy.
To remove the hinge cover, find where there is a small notch or space to the right of it and put a VERY small screwdriver in that notch and pry it up. (MAKE SURE that your LCD panel is completely flat aka. completely open when doing this).
Once it pops out (it takes a little muscle, don't worry it's made of plastic it shouldn't break) then you can keep prying it up until it all just pops out. Now using a phillips small screwdriver (cross head) tighten the hinges (they'll be easy to see along with their screws).
Then, simply replace the hinge cover the same way it came off, put it into the laptop at an angle upwards going into the left side this time, and then just begin to press it downwards until it pops into place. Do this all along the hinge cover from left to right this time.
There! hopefully that helps, but even if it does the hinges will NEED replacing, the dell ones are cheap, and eventually do need to be replaced.

The CMOS battery is located underneath the keyboard as well as one of the two memory slots. To get at it, you have to remove the “Hinge Cover” and then the Keyboard.
To remove the “Hinge Cover” (The hinge cover has the ON/OFF button) follow these steps:
1) Remove the battery and AC power.
2) In the battery bay you’ll see 2 small Phillips screws. Remove these screws.
3) Turn the laptop right side-up and using a small screwdriver, pry up on the notch on the right side of the hinge cover.
4) Lift and remove the hinge cover from the laptop.
5) Carefully lift the keyboard and gently slide it towards the LCD. (CAUTION! The keyboard is connected to the motherboard with a ribbon cable. Be careful not to damage the cable on the underside of the keyboard.)
6) The CMOS battery is located on the right side of a small white ribbon cable. It’s about the size of a small coin.
Hope this helps.

It sounds like the hinge itself is broken. I have a relative with exactly the same problem, her laptop screen became floppy and didnt stay in the upright position. The hinges for the screen are complicated in that they appear to come as a top/bottom part already joined together, and need to be replaced as such. The metal used for the hinges is really flimy and easily snaps. this sounds like what has happened to yours. The problem is that is appears to be not econimcally viable to repair, and your probably better off scrapping it or buying another with say;.. a cracked screen and doing a swap-over of parts to get one fully working one (thats what I did)
