Hi, bit more info needed. OS etc and whether you are using on-board sound or have a pci sound card.

PS - forgot to ask - what were the recent sound problems?

Hi Thanks for response - basically there is no sound - it doesn't matter whether I plug in speakers or headphones...nothing!!! Speakers themselves are OK though. Appears to be issue with speaker socket itself - ie the green one!!

I am not scolding you - just providing you with the information.

Right - back to your sound problem - it is very rare for the actual sockets to become damaged, this is more likely a fault with your software or audio hardware; unless there is an actual reason for you suspecting a faulty socket? You have not said whether your sound is 'on-board' or if you have a PCI Sound card fitted.

Hi, just a quick post to say that it could be something very basic that Technotiger may have overlooked. You say you tested your speakers, I'm assuming, on another PC or something. Is the sound turned up on the PC? On the bottom right corner of the PC look for the sound controller, and check that it is turned up and the mute box is unchecked.

If you are using a sound card, check the settings for this also.

Hi, nothing overlooked, just waiting to hear what sound system we are dealing with, there are plenty of things to be checked when I know whether it is a sound-card or on-board.

Im sure nothing is overlooked just yet as we have very limited details.

I think first we should check for any driver issues.

Swebby,can you first check Device Manager please:

Windows key + Pausebreak key / Hardware / Device manager any yellow exclaimation marks ?

Also run Everesthome click here then look under Motherboard/Motherboard name and post its details here.
This maybe just a driver issue and easily rectified.
