thanks for the reply. i just wanted to be sure that the problem was that the jacks weren't wired

i'd like to ask another question regarding the jack that is jammed. about a year ago a cheap cord extension thing i got (to size a cord a certain way so that it would fit) broke off while still in my main headphone jack. i have tried picking it out in various ways but only small pieces have come out and the main piece blocking it is jammed far in. is there a way to remove this without having to take the computer in for repair? thanks again

have you tried getting a stick (maybe a toothpick) small enough to fit into the hole...and dabing some superglue on the end of the stick..then sticking the stick into the whole so that the part thats stuck becomes stuck to the stick thereby making it unstuck by the use of your newly sticky stick? (that's alot of sticks)

If you have a very tiny drillbit (smaller than the diameter of the broken jack) and a small wireless handdrill (WOW, you guessed, I am from Holland :whistling: ) maybe you can drill it out part way and jam a toothpick into it and try to pull it out?

Good luck.

The safest way is to remove the motherboard then remove the casing(if possible) or de-solder the speaker/headphone jack from the motherboard.The jack is probably about 20-50c at radio shack

the Jack has switch contacts
Warning,if you place a metal drill or similar you will do more damage than good, permanently.
