Mark,

The computer is most likely stuck in the digital output mode. If you look in your headphone jack, you will probably see a red light. Most searches for support will suggest a toothpick to disengage the tab inside the headphone jack.

Others have had success by inserting a 3.5mm plug in and out repeatedly until the tab releases and the computer no longer thinks there is a plug in that jack.

Here is more on that.

Good Luck

Frank
