X201 Internal Speakers Stop Working

I am having a problem with the internal speakers on the X201.  Basically, the speakers just stop working.  I could be in the middle of playing a song and the speakers pop and then go out.  I have to reboot the system for them to work again.  Headphones still work despite the fact they go out.  


I am thinking this is a fault with the IO Assembly board, but am not sure..  I have reinstalled Win7 clean with updated drivers and still see the same problem.


Another interesting thing is I keep getting the disconnect/connect sound ( like you are plugging in a usb device ) at random times.  That always seems to correlate to the windows AUDIODG process.


Any ideas?

Re: X201 Internal Speakers Stop Working

As you have already reinstalled the Operating System and drivers are also updated.


I suggest you to update the BIOS and check


If then also the issue persist and your laptop is in warranty then you can contact the support center.
