You probably ended up setting it up as a headset on the PDA, and Headphones on the laptop. A disadvantage of this device is that it can only be paired with 2 devices at a time: A Phone that uses the mic AND the speakers, and an MP3 player or computer that uses Stereo Audio. To use the mic on the laptop, make sure you are using the Headset profile, and not the High Quality Audio profile. In other words, make sure it's a "Hands free audio", and not a "Stereo Audio". Repair the device to change its services.

I need to replace the dc jack on vgn-txn17p. I need the manual to open the laptop.

If you have to ask "how", you should avoid a heap of trouble by taking the computer to a qualified technician, to get the job correctly, using the correct tools.
