Windows 7: Sound card problem - headphones work, notebook speakers don't

Sound card problem - headphones work, notebook speakers don't

Hi all,

I just bought an old Toshiba A210 laptop and I'm dealing with a couple of (minor) problems. As the title says, I've tried every conceivable control, I can't get any sound from the speakers. No hissing sound, nothing, completely silent. Headphones work fine though.

I checked device manager and drivers, it's a Realtek driver, I went to Toshiba and saw that I have the latest driver for Win 7.

Any ideas what kind of problem this is? hardware probably?

This laptop had Win 7 Ultimate installed over Vista.

I probably need to try some nice USB speakers anyway though

Thanks!

Considering its a used laptop, it wouldn't surprise me that one of the reasons it was being sold is the speaker problem.

Yes, but I knew about this problem when I bought it.

Open the case and see if the connector has just come loose for the internal speakers. Usually the headphone jack assembly is a separate small board and sometimes the speakers are connected there.
