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?
