Laptop sound channel does not work -any suggestions?

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Gary Glencross, Sep 25, 2004.

  1. A few weeks ago the audio of my laptop (14 months old) began to crackle.
    Now, all of a sudden, the left hand stereo channel does not make any sound
    at all. There is no sound through the laptop speakers or when using
    headphones. There is nothing in my setting to suggest that I have changed
    anything.

    Is this likely to be a hardware fault. Can a sound card burn out or
    something and would it have this effect?

    Any suggestions?

    Sounds like the audio hardware crapped out. Since this is usually integrated
    onto the laptop mainboard, it will not be a cheap repair if the unit is out
    of warranty.
