Dropped my Laptop, sound doesn't work

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My desk collapsed and the laptop fell with it. Everything seems to be ok except the sound isnt working. Onboard speakers don't work; external speakers dont work; and headphones don't work. Looks like I need a laptop sound card. Any ideas?

You could try one of those fancy USB x-fi ones.

Not only do you get to have sound back on your laptop, you get Xtreme Fidelity audio! [/sarcasm]

Seriously though, you could look into one, not sure how well they work though. Reviews ftw.

I guess you don't have any warranty? Is it the speakers that are broken or the sound card portion of the motherboard? Test it first. Then see if a USB x-fi card or express slot card wil solve the problems.
