Hey there, have you tried this?

1) Plug in headphones or external speakers into the line-out jack

2) Shut down the computer

3) Perform an SMC with the speakers still plugged into the jack

4) Boot up

5) Disconnect speakers

SMC? , the weirdest thing is: this problem solves itself when the battery dies and i conect the AC and reboot the mac, but the problem still there when i plug in my headphones o.O
