Solid State Drive (SSD) Full ¶

Bad or No Audio ¶
Speakers on the device are either not playing sound or playing corrupted sound
Corrupted Sound File ¶
Ensure that the volume on the device is not muted or that the media is indeed playing the correct sound. A good way to test whether the audio issue is from the media file or from the computer is by alternating the sound output from the speakers to headphones. To do this, plug a pair of headphones into the headphone jack, play the audio file, and listen to the output from the headphones. If sound comes out of the headphones, the problem is with the device's speakers. You can replace them using this replacement guide.
