    The sound on my powerbook went out suddenly and i have no clue why. I have gone into my system preferences/sound tab and have all the settings to where they should be, however i noticed that in the output tab there is only the option for headphones. I have no clue if this is normal but I feel i should be seeing the option for internal speakers in there as well. Could that have fallen out? Does anybody know how I can make that an option again? I appreciate any help anyone can give me. Thanks!

    Do your hear the start up chime?

    Do you get sound if you have headphones connected? My powerbook does exactly what your describing. Normally i put in headphones in, it some how fixes it's self. BTW make sure you do a PRAM reset first! Most things like this are sorted out with a PRAM reset
