Or can i fix it myslef cuz ive already sent in my laptop in before and im in school so i wont have time to send it in a while. so yeah someone get back to me aight?

  • if you're brave enough to open up your laptop then check to make sure proper contact is being made between the jack and socket.
  • i have the same problem. but i think i may have broken my headphone jack, and might need to install a new sound card even.
     
    anybody have any tips on how I could open up my computer and fix it?
     
    im really trying to not have to spend $100+ on a soundblaster PC card :P
     
    thanks in advance
