11/26: Help. Is there a simple fix for this? I read thru all of the related threads but not sure there is a definitive fix. I've read thru every thread and done everything folks have suggested. Has anybody figured this out, is there a simple fix?

Its been over 2 weeks since I am using the laptop and the audio jack problem has not reoccured. Its been working fine since the fix (pulg in and out the head phone for about 30 times).

Here's my solution (this has happened to me when I plug in the headphones and THEN wake up the computer - and I have no sound in my headphones):
Click on the speaker icon in the desktop. Mute, then unmute.
Wow, of all the things to actually work this did it for me. Thanks for the tip

I don't know if this has anything to do with the problem, but I was watching a video file (movie) on a USB thumb drive the other day in the A stand mode and the audio was fine through the built in speaker. Sometime yesterday I noticed the built in sound had stopped working. I also know there were some Windows updates that ran between the time I removed the USB thumb drive and the time I noticed the sound had stopped working. My instinct is the Windows updates stomped on something, as I've seen Windows Update introduce sound problems then fix sound problems on another system.
Someone suggested unplugging and plugging in headphones several times, but my system was registering the plug and remove correctly even though no sound was coming out of either source.
Someone else suggested uninstalling the Realtek driver, so that is what I did just now. The uninstall asked to reboot, and now my sound is working again without having to adjust any other settings.
Thank you, community!
