Windows 7: problems with headphone port and non working speakers Dell Inspiron

problems with headphone port and non working speakers Dell Inspiron

The other day a speaker cord was yanked out of my computer and dismembered the head phone port. When headphones or speakers are plugged in they do not work. The main issue here is when nothing is plugged into the port my laptop speakers do not work. Its as if my computer thinks something is plugged in and has turned off its own speakers.
Im poor and lack funds to pay someone for help. What can I try to fix this?

The headphone jack will have to be repaired (if possible - in many cases it will require a new motherboard). There is a contact in the jack (a "normal through") contact that the sound chip senses. Maybe a computer tech can rewire around that so the speakers always work or if you are lucky replace the jack. Otherwise you are looking at a new motherboard. You will have to weigh having sound against the $$ it will potentially take to fix it.

There may be an option to disable jack detection for your soundcard with the manufacturers audio software. You will have to check with dell whether or not this is supported by your machine.

Depends on the Laptop model. User did not include the model.

The Laptop General Hardware section on the Dell community forum would be the place to go with this. Laptop General Hardware Forum - Laptop General Hardware Forum - Laptop - Dell Community
