  1. Hi - new here and hoping someone can give me advice. Have a Dell inspiron laptop and all of a sudden it will only play sound thru the headphones - not the internal speakers (not sure if kids did something or...??) . I am not computer savy - but found where I could run diagnostic at startup and testing the sound - it played just fine with the internal speakers during the test. I have tried all the diagnostic tests that I could find. Is there some type of internal switch that could not be turning on for the internal speakers? Again -don't know much - but can't afford a hefty repair bill. Thanks for any advice I think the computer has sigma tel high def...??
