Having problems with your Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop ?

Broken headphone jack

\015 I stepped on my headphone cord and the tip broke off inside the jack. I can't get it out, and my sound won't play through my speakers. I tried changing the settings in my sound card options and switched off the option that mutes speakers while headphones are in, but that didn't work (even after I restarted). The sound was working last night after the headphones broke. Only after I restarted did I encounter this problem. How can I get my speakers to play sound again?\015

Answers :

You should be able to get it out from the inside on the card. Do you have a sound card or is your sound on the motherboard?
