A couple random thoughts...

Make sure it's the MacBook and not the speakers. Plug the speakers into an mp3 player and make sure they work.

Aside from the above, I'm not sure how you would perform a detailed diagnosis of the problem, but I can offer you a $50 fix in the event it turns out to be an internal hardware problem...

I use an external USB sound card with my speakers attached to it. I didn't like plugging in the 1/8" jack everytime I used the MacBook at my desk. I already was plugging in a USB cord attached to a USB hub. So I bought a USB sound card and added it to the hub. Now I have real speakers and all my USB accessories running through a single cord.

I use a Creative Labs Soundblaster USB card. It's $50 from Amazon, Circuit City, Best Buy etc.
