My 2 year old tripped over my headphone cable which was plugged into my Acer aspire 5315 and rather than just pull the cable out its pulled the inside of the onboard sound card. it still works but now if i plug my headphones/speakers in it still plays through the lappys speakers aswell which does not help when im producing music late at night.i do have a USB sound card but it is really impractical. i am not bad with a soldering iron and am happy to do any repairs by myself but just need to know

Audio/Video questions Hi everyone, I've got a t180 and I'd like to hook it up to my 5.1 receiver. The t180 is specifically the UA380B, as far as I/O goes, there's a headphone and mic jack on the front, and on the rear there's a mic/line-in/speaker out as well as jacks for rear left, right, and subwoofer.  My receiver has inputs for optical, digital coax, and regular RCA red/white. What's the best connection I could make from the computer to the receiver? Does the PC only output analog? Is there

Also sometimes there is a hum as well. To troubleshoot, I have changed the cables and tried different CD's and DVD's. Was wondering if the sound card may be lose or wearing out. It is Conexant AMC Audio. Thanks
