    External Speakers Not Working

    Does anyone know of a possible explanation for my external speaker port on my Dell laptop to suddenly stop working? I know its not the external speakers themselves b/c I tried connecting a different set and they also won't work. The sound is coming out fine from the built-in laptop speaker. Both sets of external speakers work fine connected to a different laptop. So I'm assuming its the port or some setting within the laptop that somehow got changed. Any ideas?

    Thanks for any advice!

    I would go to Control Panel and then Sounds speech and audio devices. Then click Advanced Audio controls on the Left and see if anything is muted,

    Cool

    turned out I was having a "senior moment" and had the speakers plugged into the mike port!

    So sorry to trouble anyone who read this.
