Why is my sound icon grayed out?

When I try to adjust the volume, the icon is grayed out. When I reboot, there is no chime. And when I go into the sound settings, it doesn't show an output. I have tried resetting the PRAM and the SMC.

Do I have to replace the speakers?

Any help would be appreciated.

does it work with headphones connected? is there a red light on in the headphone port? if so, its stuck in digital audio mode... otherwise, its likely to be either a faulty with the logic board, or a possible software glitch. naturally its easier to start with the software, so try doing a clean install (on an external drive if you don't want to do one on your internal drive)

Mr., how can I do a clean install? Thx!

If you are running 10.7 or later, you can boot to the recovery partition by booting the machine while holding the 'Alt' key. then select the recovery partition.

If you are running 10.6, you'll have to use the original install disks that came with the machine

Plug your headphones back in.

Play a bit of sound through them (e.g., a song), then stop the sound.

Make sure Preferences is quit.

Launch Preferences and open the Sound pane.

While the Sound pane is open and set to Headphones, pull out the headphone plug from the jack.

It will reset itself to "Internal Speakers" and you are good to go...

this should work.as it worked for me

This worked for me— but only when I did it using iTunes, which was the last thing I had used with the headphones before the sound went out.
