Dell Mini 9 Audio problems - wits end!!
Hi all, I would be hugely grateful if anybody can help with this admitedly old issue!
I have installed Snow Leopard 10.6.1 on my Dell Mini 9. This took several days of blind fumbling. I am not very technical and used many many different tutorials until it eventually worked (more through sheer luck than any understanding on my part). I did this several months ago but have never fixed the fact that the headphone jack doesn't work. I really need to get this fixed as I am taking the netbook away on holiday and need to plug in speakers.
I can't remember (or don't know much) about my original install but the files I kept from it are within the folder "netbookbootmaker 0.8.3 RC3.app.zip" if this helps.
As I say, any help would be greatly appreciated but in the least techie language possible please,
A bit more information: I have tried to install the following kext files, after which my audio through the speakers has also stopped:
AppleHDA.kext & ALCinject.kext (I did this a couple of times using a kext helper which I got from a youtube tutorial.
I have done a spotlight search and found that these are the kexts in my Extra>Mini9Ext folder. I have no real idea what all of this means but thought it might help.

Further to my last post..
Hi all, further to my last post, I now have no audio what-so-ever. I tried a couple of different things found on youtube (installing two kext files) and rebooted but now my audio is gone completely. I ran soundsource and it is showing no output devices.
I am totally frustrated but this is what happens when I start messing around with things I don't properly understand.
Again, any help would be greatly appreciated,
You didn't say what your audio chipset was but you can try this link. Make sure you delete all other audio kext you have tried first and repair permissions. If you don't know how to manually download a tool like kext utility that will do it for you. After you have done that then install above Kext into System/Library/Extensions folder and repair permissions again. Hope this helps and is not to technical
