    does anyone know if the sound connector strap from the motherboard to the in,out,misc, holes for sound ever go bad? the sound was working good and then it just quit. i pulled the sound jack from the speakers out of the inline hole some and the sound worked again, then it quit. If i move the sound jack around, sound tries to play. but then it just makes a noise. i plugged the speaker jacks into the headphone slot in front of the computer and the speakers worked, but now they don't work anymore either. thank you in advance for any replies.

    You may want to try another set of speakers or headphones first. The jack on the CD-ROM is independent of the cable that goes to the soundcard - the only exception to this is if the Audio CD is being played digitally. I assume the sound cuts out even if you play other sounds - like MP3 files and such?

    this may be what's wrong, i bought a cheap pair of speakers (new) at the flea market and they could be bad, i'll check it out and let you know, thanks
