I have a lenovo thinkpad. I don't know exactly which, but a month or two ago i managed to mess up my keyboard on my laptop. So i bought a bluetooth keyboard, and put it on my laptop's normal keyboard.

Today i was just doing some stuff online, and when i wanted to watch a youtube video there was no sound for me, i went to the taskbar clicked, rightclicked the audio icon, tried unmuting and muting still no sound, did the FN + F9 command and it showed me that it wasn't muted yet it still was. And i've looked on google and on other forums for solutions, i think i might be the only one who managed to press a key and make it work on a broken keyboard and not make it work again. I can hear sound when i plug in my earbuds, so pretty sure if i were to plug in stereos or anything like that i would hear sound. But i want to hear sound from my laptop.
Sorry if i didn't give alot of information, i'm not that old and not that great at english.
Thanks for reading.

Hi

The only solution is to either use an external keyboard or replace the present keyboard.
