broken audio jack
I don't know if this is the right place for my problem? A few months ago while I was in the process of moving I had my compaq presario 6027us on the dinner table temporarily. One day I came home from work to find that either the kids or my cats had been playing behind my computer. I noticed that I was not getting any sound from my headphones that I had plugged into the factory audio jack. when I looked behind the computer I was I found that someone had broken the headphone jack's metal prong half way down. It had broken off at the first little plastic ringlet on the jack. So to make a long story short how do I get the broken off piece out? I don't want to have to buy a new sound card. I would rather not send out to compaq/hewlett for a new part. Has anyone had this problem before?
