Muffled or No Sound?

by DestinyHasArrived - 7/28/09 5:35 PM

I am on a laptop right now.

I have been using my headphones for a long time now. They are great quality headphones. All of a sudden, my headphone just went haywire. The sound went muffled. I tried to see if actually worked again if I actually "tapped" it a couple times. The sound came back and muffled back again. Tapped it some more then finally it was working. Except, it then came to me that there was no absolute bass whatsoever. Then, the sound was then muffled again and basically now I can't hear anything at all!!!

If I pull it out and leave it 3/4 of the way, it works fine but sometimes one of either the headphones side stop playing music for 2 seconds. When I plug it in all the way, there is either muffled, or no sound at all.

I need great help and if you assist, I thank you.

My specs:
HP Pavillion dv6000 Series
Windows XP Professional SP2
intel Dual Core 1.8 GHz
2 GB RAM
8400m GS
Realtek HD Audio
160 GB
