Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
Some how i managed to damage the input ports (microphone, headphone) on my laptop. When I plug in a microphone to the microphone jack, and wiggle it around, i get nothing. However, when i plug it into the headset port, and wiggle it around, in one specific spot, i get a connection.
My main question is this.....for me to even be able to listen to audio on my laptop, i have to have that microphone plug in that specific spot....is there a way to bypass this hardware setting to where I can get sound on my laptop speakers without the ports interference.
To get audio and microphone use, i have purchased a USB adapter...however, i would also like to just listen to audio on my laptop speakers
You should have sound from the speakers at all times until headphones are plugged into the jack, the jack then overrides the speakers and allows you to listen using the headphones. If the speakers aren't working, it's because they're being overridden by the damaged jack. The only way to correct this is to replace the faulty jacks. You could get a set of external speakers, the con is they're bulky and inconvenient.
