    Okay, so this has been an issue for a while, and I've found temporary fixes, but for some reason they aren't working anymore. (playing around with the audio jack)

    I can get audio on my laptop with normal (non-usb) headphones just fine, but I get nothing out of the built in speakers, despite the computer claiming that the speakers are working fine- even showing levels of the audio that SHOULD be playing when I look into it. I even tried to uninstall/reinstall the driver that I think is messing things up, theres no updates for it, and it won't let me rollback to any earlier version.

    The oddest part is I get a split second of audio whenever I click any part of the mixer levels.

    Oh- and I have an IDT audio driver, so it couldn't be the Realtek problem everyone else is having, could it? From whats I've read on this site alone, if it is that problem you'll all simply tell me I'm doomed and to wait for "them" to make an update! (If everyone had this problem for forever now and it hasn't been fixed yet... I get the feeling it's never gonna happen.)

    Anyone able to help me?

    It worked briefly after calling customer support and I drained the power by removing the battery and restarted the computer. They assured me it probably had nothing to do with the driver, but the problem returned right away. Anyone?
