I have a Sony Vaio laptop. One night I hooked up my speakers to the outlet on the side, and couldn't hear anything. I jiggled it around, but only when I pushed it in and held it a certain way, would the speakers work. I took it out and inspected the outlet, to see that half of the plastic rim was broken. How would this be fixed? About how much would it cost? Is there anything I can do? THANKS!

There are audio -> usb adapters. should only cost $5-10 maybe less.

I don't think you will be able to fix this on your own.

Could you provide us with some pictures or more descriptive words?

If you are lucky the sound board is seperate and you might be able to replace it. otherwise you might be able to get a jack and resolder one in but I think either may be beyond what you want to go through.... If that is the case you may want to consider the suggestion above from rocknrollcows.
