Hi, My friend has an Advent laptop (Vista) and the sound doesn't seem to work? There are no yellow exclamation marks in device manager so im stuck. The icon is not muted. Please can i ask for some help?

Presumably it has worked in the past - have you checked the sound drivers?

Hi, Yes, a speaker was already highlighted and said it was working. Im playing a youtube clip and the equalizer icon next to it is moving as if it is playing but still no audio?

Hi, I've just plugged in some speakers to the audio jacks and sound came out. Ref Drivers- there are no exclamation marks in device manager?

I will find out if the audio was working in the past. One thing- the 'left' button below the touch pad has not worked since i have had the laptop from my friend? Any possible connection?

Then the hear phone jack needs a new one as all it is, is a mechanical switch that changes from speaker to phones when you plug a jack in. just spring contacts in side that is stuck on phone contacts

woodchip - If sound comes out from the audio jack/headphone jack why would a new one be required.

Several possibilities - duff internal speakers or wrong configuration eg default set to head phone not speakers.
