Hi, I am a very confused mac user from Denmark. My speakers doesn't work?
When I go to System settings and then to Sound, it says that the computer is muted, and now (for no reason) I can't turn the sound on again. I really don't know what to do, so if you could help me, please do.

    There was a problem with the headphone jack getting stuck which tells the computer to route sound to it rather than the built in speakers. If you look in the headphone jack, do you see a light on inside?
    If so, try inserting the headphone plug a few times and see if that un-sticks it. If not, try using either a toothpick or other non-metal type pick(plastic) to reset it.
    DON'T get too aggressive doing this, so as not to do more damage. While doing this, have the speaker volume set to medium, so you know when you get it.

    Otherwise, take it in for repair.
