    Hi

    My MBA's speakers work only when booting (that system sound it does), but when Its logged in, it doesn't, just the headphones, and in System Preferences it only appears that option (the headphone one, not the internal speakers one)

    How could I repair this?

    No Drop Down Menu?

    If not, verify the disk and then check and repair disk permissions.

    From disk utility.

    Is there a red light inside the headphone jack of your computer? There is a common issue where a little switch inside there can get stuck. Sometimes simply plugging in headphones and removing them (quickly if it doesn't work normally) can resolve the issue.
