    So my MacBook has recently lost it's ability to output audio through the built-in speakers or another device. I'm quite frustrated as I watch and listen to tons of multimedia, and not being to hear a thing is quite sad.

    When I hit the volume up/down keys, all I get is the on screen audio level indicator and thats it.

    I've restarted a few times already, resetted the PRAM as well as the SMC and nothing improved. I want to try avoid taking it to the Genius Bar as I'm really not going to have the time to do so this week, and I believe there is a simpler solution.

    Thanks.

    In System Preferences>Sound>Output is there anything else but "Internal Speakers" selected? You probably already checked that but these little things can be a pain sometimes.

    That fix did it! Yeah the output was set to something else.

    Thanks a lot. :)

    Sadly not all problems are so easy to fix but I have accidentally changed enough settings (or the ghost in the machine has) that I always check that stuff first. Glad it was simple :)
