Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario CQ50-140US Laptop ?

Normal headphone jack does not work I have a Compaq Presario C50 laptop and it seems my headphone jack isn't working. The speakers work fine, but whenever I plug in my headphones, sound continues to go to the speakers. I've downloaded drivers, etc, to no avail. My laptop was also JUST IN for repair 3 weeks ago, and they replaced the motherboard. Do I have a hardware problem that must be fixed by "professionals" again, or is there some way I can fix it myself?
