Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.
\015\012The issue you are experiencing is caused by faulty hardware. The sound card is integrated on the motherboard and may be experiencing issues. You mentioned that you can only get it to work when you move the slider manually? If this is the case, then you will need get your laptop serviced and have them check the sound card.
\015\012Do you hear crackling or any popping noises coming from the speaker? If you do, you may be experiencing a blown speaker. These can be easily fixed but you must look up the part number and order the replacement speaker.
\015\012Please let me know if you have any questions. Glad to help!
