I had the same problem on my hp dv6000 for a while. Headphones would work just fine but the built-in speakers stopped working. At first i thought there was no way it was a sound card problem b/c if it was the sound card, neither the headphones or internal speakers would work... but i updated and reinstalled drivers anyway. no luck. Then i noticed the speakers would sometimes work for a second when i removed the headphone jack. I then knew it was a short in the jack connection or just a bad connector in the jack. Sooo, I just plugged in the headphone jack a bunch of times and after about 20 seconds the speakers were working just fine and i haven't had a problem since! Sounds crazy but it worked for me.
hope this helps :)

I told my daughter she probably didn't have any sound after she had her headphones plugged in the other day. But try argue with a 7 year old. On he 10th attempt of taking out the headphones it worked just fine. Thanks so much.

Hi Everyone,

I hope someone can help me. I currently have a HP dv6310nr and running windows XP. All of sudden my internal laptop speakers stopped working, but my headphones still work, but at MINIMAL volume. I have it on maximum volume and it's still very low. I guess I have the same problem as everyone else presented, however my problem still persists when inserting and removing the headphones jack.

Any other suggestions on how to resolve this problem? Like Bizi said, it can't be the sound card because the headphones still work. Please, any advise will be appreciated. Thanks!

Dear bizi,

Your solution is really nice. But my problem is little different. I have a HP Laptop. I was watching movie at that time my cell phone rang. I first pause and later close the movie. Later when I finished my call and try to play that movie again. At that very moment I found there was no sound coming out from my speaker. Then I connected the head phone and found the sound is perfect.

Please help me.

Regards,

plagha

This is incredible...the solution of unplugging and plugging back in many times worked!!!
Just when I was about to give up after the 30th time or so...I finally heard sound coming from my laptop speaker - just a glimpse but I kept on about 10 more times and it worked....Thank you so much for the simple solution! It was so irritating to be tethered to my laptop at work. Bizi, your simple solution posted 3 years ago has still helped us in 2011. Many many thanks to you!

Thanks...
After 1 month without laptop speakers finally work...
The problem was the same, I can hear with an external device (headphones or speakers) but the laptop (HP Elitebook 8440) speakers didnt work...

I plugged the headphone jack maybe 25 times and work...

Same solution of 4 years ago...
