    Hey guys,

    My internal speakers in my PowerPC G4 just magically stopped working! It recognizes them in system preferences. And yes, the volume is up. I dont know what happened. The headphones do work. I havent tested external speakers yet, but that's next on the list.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks guys!

    Have you opened the G4 for other upgrades? Maybe you accidentally disconnected the speaker connection to the logic board?

    Open up the side door and trace the speaker wire to the logic board and wiggle it to see if it'll reconnect. It could also be possible that the speaker just died...
