Software may turn off access to your analog speakers - this happened to me. I would check this possiblity out before trying to swap hardware. 1) Right Click on the Speaker ICON on your Task Bar. 2) Click on Playback devices 3) Select Speakers from the Pop Up window, labelled SOUND 4) IF there is NO checkmark in a green circle, beside the SPEAKER ICON, Click on the SPEAKER ICON. 5) Click on Set Default This puts a checkmark in a green circle, indicating that it is the Default, Device, beside the Speakers Icon. 6) Click on Apply 7) Click on OK
