Did you raise the volume level in speaker mode. There is a micro switch in the headphone jack, try making and un-making this connection several times to see if maybe the switch is stuck.

Try using the FN key. Hold down the fn key then at the same time tap the volume up key to your desired level.

Try a quick blast of air to clean the jack. Are there front and rear audio out jacks try both to see that as well.

Give me a bit and when I return I'll play with my laptop and see what settings I find that could help. It's odd how these sound issues turn out to be so simple when you finally find them. Stay tuned !

You will never see the Microswitch, it's something inside the headphone jack, it mutes the speakers when the headphones are plugged in. Sometimes this switch can stick so that the speaker connection is never made when the headphone plug is removed.

If it's a true multifunction jack it can suffer from yet another problem.. when the headphones are removed the microswitch kicks in the digital output instead of switching to the speakers. Macbooks by the 1000's suffered this problem. You could always tell if the digital out was engaged, if you looked in the headphone jack you could see a red light. (optical digital out)

In Windows 7, right click the speaker icon in the task bar and select playback devices... what devices show up? (right click in the PB devices window and enable disconnected/disabled devices)
