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

Re: Dell Inspiron 6000 PC Audio Ports Damaged
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.

Your jack may have been damaged, or the apple mic may not be compatible. Purchase another pc compatible mic to check. Or you could try a multimedia headset with mic that plugs into your usb port. Take a look at RadioShack for headsets, I saw one in a store near me. and they should have them online.
You will need a cord that plus into the headphone jack or speaker out jack on the computer and has rca end to plug into the audio input on the TV.It will look like the one pictured.Please rate this solution.
it could be that the ports where you plug in the charger is damaged. if you have an identical or a known good battery that is charged, try to install that and check if it works. you need a motherboard replacement if the system works with a charged battery.
