Sound from external speakers only - internal ones kaput?

  polymath 17:01 25 Sep 2013

My laptop's internal speakers recently went straight from normal to no sound whatever (from any source), while the volume level still fluctuates as expected in the System Tray Volume Mixer. External speakers work fine. Is this a simple case of the internal ones giving up the ghost? (The laptop is 6 years old).
