I was wondering if anyone else had this issue.. and if they were able to fix it.... I have a Acer Nitro 5 laptop, and the only time i can hear sound is when i have headphones plugged in.. is there a fix to this, so i can hear sound without them

    When you right click on the speaker icon at bottom right and choose Open Sound Settings, what does it display for the Output Device?

    So they should be working... Is the volume level for the speakers set to mute or very low?

    IIRC there's a check mark you can set when the headphones are first plugged in to use it always or never at plugin. Check in Sound Settings to see if that can be set back.
