i dont think there is any problem with the jack because when i ran the diagnostics program from a usb bootable drive there was sound from the speakers and didnt seem to have any problem ?
but its really confusing because in windows and in linux enviroment im not getting any sound

and i just checked the playback option in the speaker icon. I am only getting the "Speakers" also there is nothing dissabled

Ok, select Playback Device again and single left click on the "Speakers" icon, the "Properties" and "Configure" button becomes active.

Go to Configure and make sure it's set on Stereo.
Now backup and go to Properties What tabs to you have General, Levels, Enhancements, Advanced... are some of the possibilites. Go to Enhancements and Disable all Sound Effects, reboot. Next under advanced set to 16-bit 44.1kHz.

If you have a levels tab, try bringing up some of the levels to see if any one of them affects the speakers.

That's about all I got! This problem has been posted before but I never knew if a resolution was found.

I was having trouble with my speaker and headphone sound after using my TV as expanded display and used the Windows 7 trouble shooter to correct it. Worked like a charm and am I happy because the problem had me baffled.

You can try checking all the sound devices in Device Manager maybe something has been changed. This was the solution in my laptop but it runs xp pro. Also you can check to see if Dell has any updates that relate to sound and run those updates. Then lastly you can try a restore system to a point when you know the speakers were working.

I'm back to that freakin little micro switch. I believe it's stuck in the headphone position even when the jack is removed. How many times did you try making and un-making the headphone jack? Wait you ordered external speakers and they connect via the same headphone jack? and the headphones will work but the speakers won't?

Finding it will require opening the laptop up completely and it's not recommended without a manual and even then it could tax your wits. Is this the only headphone/speaker jack on the laptop. You may want to give a sound card a try they aren't that expensive and could even improve the sound?

I fixed it!

I fixed my no sound problem! Thanks to Aphelions post which got me into the speaker icon, try this: rt click on speaker icon (lower right of screen), and you see tabs: General, Custom, Levels, Sound Blaster, Enhancements, Advanced.

Click "custom" tab. In that tab I had "PC Spk Mute" checked. How was it checked? When? I have absolutely no idea. However, after months of no sound, I unchecked this little box, and voila, there is sound!!
