Need so advice here, if I may be so bold to ask?
Won and collected an inspiron 1300 laptop off ebay yesterday, knowing that the prev owner had dropped it and there wasn't any sound.
The specs of this machine is a pentium m processor, with a 1gb ram, and 50gb memory - I don't know if this is relevent to the question i'm asking, which is -
"What is the cheapest way to restore the sound?"
I've checked the drivers, etc and all ok there. I have however noticed that the headset input socket has been pushed in....guessing the previous owner was using headsets when she dropped it.
My initial thought was that i will need to replace the sound card, but i've since seen that you can get cheap USB Sound Cards, which will enable the use of headsets and a microphone.
If this is the cheapest option and will work on my laptop, does anyone have any recommendations on where to get the cheapest?
Apologies if this post is all over the place, but i don't know much about these things.
