When I went to plug something into my headphone jack I only get a muffled sound. I can't hear anything much only a light, muffled sound. Is there anyway to fix this problem?

    You'll probably either need to get new headphones or to take your laptop for repairs. If it's still under warranty, you could have the seller take care of it or send it to the appropriate repair site. -- Tom

    Check to see if your headphones have their own separate inline volume/mute control. I had a pair that I'd mute accidently if I leaned to close to the desk. Check your sound settings in the control panel and make sure it looks ok. You may have a test sound feature. Lastly do you get sound thru the laptop speakers? If not you may have a damaged "sound card". With most thing being integrated these days that's a repair you cannot fix yourself and may be costly.
