If the piece cannot be removed, I am assuming we will have to replace the audio jack input. Can we replace only the audio input, or does the entire motherboard need to be replaced? If either of these is the case, can anyone recommend a reputable distributor of either of these parts for an HP A000. I have been checking on the internet for hours, but unfortunately, I do not know enough about computers to know about compatibility of audio inputs between manufacturers/models of computers.
My boyfriend also mentioned that he might be able to get a sound card. Will a sound card operate the computer's speakers independently of the audio input? If so, can anyone recommend any sound cards?
Any help that can be offered is GREATLY appreciated!! Thank you in advance
