    NOTE:
    I fixed this myself:

    I upgraded from 10.5.8 to 10.6.0 (issue did not get fixed), I then ran updates and updated to 10.6.8 and that eventually fixed my problem. Updates where breaking for me so I had to run 1 update at a time otherwise my Mac would just crash on reboot.


    _______________________________________________________________




    Things I have tried:

    Reboot
    Safe boot
    Command, Option, P, and R
    Repair Permissions
    Delete the BezelServices preferences file
    Pluged standard headphones into the headphone jack
    Turned Bluetooth on and off again
    Reinstalled the 10.5.8 combo update


    I opened the terminal and ran
    Code:
    ps -ef | grep audio

    and the only two options are


    Code:
    0     169    1    0    0:00.1    ??    0:00.3   /usr/sbin/coreaudiod
    501   327   314   0    0:00.00  ttys000  0:00.00  grep audio
    I then ran
    Code:
    sudo killall coreaudiod 


    but coreaudiod won't die and stays running no matter what.



    Mac OSX
    Version 10.5.8
    MacBook6,1




    where do I go from here?

    I've had this odd problem on a 10.5.x iMac. It's annoying as all get out, but a reset of the systemwide audio preferences usually clears it up. These files are in /Library/Preferences, all start with com.apple.audio and all end with .plist. (Oddly enough, this same fix works perfectly on 10.6.x through 10.11.x!)

    You'll need to reboot after moving / trashing the files.

    I tried this. I only have one file
    Code:
    com.apple.audio.AudioMIDISetup.plist
    and it won't re-appear in the "prefrences" folder after I move it out and reboot. :C

    Any other ideas? and thank you :)

    It's been a long time since I last used Leopard. The files in question may very well live in a different place. Try the Audio folder inside /Library, if such a thing exists. Is there a folder called Audio inside Preferences? Look there too.

    The Audio folder that I have inside /Library is just filled with empty folders(I am new to mac are there "Hidden Files" like in Windows?). Except for the folder "MIDI Configurations" and that only has the file "Default.mcfg"

    There is no audio folder inside of Prefrences sadly

    Just in case there's someone else looking :)

    Mac OSX 10.5 & 10.6
    From old notes >

    USB Speakers not working
    I deleted the com.apple.soundpref.plist from the MAIN LIBRARY -PREFERENCES - (not the users library).

    Again in the same PREFERENCES folder I went into the AUDIO folder and deleted com.apple.audio.DeviceSettings.plist and com.apple.audio.SystemSettings.plist
