The speaker/headphone jack on my Dell Inspiron 6400/E1505 seems to have stopped working. The internal speakers continue to work, but anything plugged into the jack has the effect of muting everything. The external speakers I did have plugged into it still work when connected to another device, so that isn't the problem--and, plugging headphones into the jack has the same effect.

What can I do to fix this problem? This computer is no longer under warranty, by the way.
