I usually hook up my laptop to my stereo via a cable from the headphone jack, but now to use it, or headphones, or anything through that jack, I need to kind of ... wriggle it around a bit, or else I either get no sound, a faint sound, only foreground sound, or only background sound. Its really hard to get it in just the right spot for normal sound, and if I accidentally poke the cable or something and throw it off sync ... well, its really frusterating. =/
I'm looking into an external sound card, but before I do ... any suggestions?
FYI : I've got a Toshiba Satellite A15-S127, a little over a year old. 256MB RAM, 30GB model.
