This problem is very vague but the speakers don't work. I tried plugging in headphones onto the computer and heard sound so I know its a problem with the speakers. I believe everything is plugged in correctly as well, and the power was turned on.

Check sound from headphones. These models have been known to have bad headphone jacks that make the unit think there are headphones plugged in even when there isn't. Sometimes just plugging in headphones and unplugging them will fix it for a while.
If the head phone jack works its more likely to be the problem, if you use the headphone jack a lot the connections inside it can get worn or bent out of shape--engaging the headphone jack should shut the speakers in the unit off.
Other possible reason is a bad speaker or connections.
This is the normal way for this laptop ..leave it always with the headphones on selected in that list ..cause if the main speakers don't work well there is no point in using them ..This way you will run whatever yo will plug in ..speakers or headphones..The only setting difference in headphones and stereo out ..is that for headphones will but the speakers of the laptop when plugged in ..This way it will even help you if the speakers are making weird noises cause they are damaged ..
Those speakers are meant to just plug into a sound card or onboard sound device or any sound device that has headphone jacks e.g. iPod. They don't provide feedback to the PC, so there is absolutely no need for drivers, which is why you don't see them in device manager. Think of them as a glorified pair of headphones.
you think you have a sound card installed but you don’t see it under the Sound, video and game controllers category, expand the Other devices category and check any devices listed

should be a round jack for it on the back of the computer. If it is a universal
serial bus (USB) cable, it will plug into any USB port on your
Make sure your headphones are not plugged into the line out
(headphone) jack of your sound card or computer (unless you want to be listening
with headphones rather than speakers). When you plug in headphones, most
computers automatically cut the sound to the speakers.
If these steps don’t solve the problem, check the information that
came with your computer and speakers or go to the manufacturer's website.
Check your system if you are able to hear sound using any headphone..if you are able to hear sound from headphone then the problem is with your dell speakers,else you need to update sound drivers for your system...Thanks..
There are 2 volume control buttons on the laptop. 1 turns it up 1 turns it down. Try turning the volume up. It may be up high enough for you to hear with headphones but now loud enough to be heard through the speakers.
