I was working happily, listening to Melanie’s Estate Sale at a low volume from my MacBook Pro’s speakers when the sound went out with a sharp but not loud “pop.” Whoah. This sucks. Now I can’t get sound out of my speakers. Gonna have to bring this back to Apple. What a waste of time.
Update: I turned the MBP off, removed the battery and power cable and let it sit a while. When I brought it back up, there was sound. Yay!
