uhh...ripped off? and when you mean no sound, do you mean that the speakers on the laptop dont work?

is it possible to replace the jack?

if no, then i guess you could get a usb sound device, and a pair of speakers, or something like this

Listen to my music! and random/funny videos XD

If it's a fairly new laptop, it should have an PCMCIA port.

i dont want to get an external or a pcmia, i want to be able to use my laptop speakers. im just wondering if anyone has any knowladge of the dell laptop motherboards the headphone jack had like 5 or 6 solder points i just want to try and figure out which ones i have to connect to trick it into thinking the jack is still there and send the signal to my speakers.
