Your headphone needs replacement. You need to either look on here, or other websites that will give you help on how to open and solder it. if you cannot solder then i suggest you send it somewhere. it is not that expensive to get it done.

I cannot figure out how to hook my creative vision to computer

A manual for Zen Vision M on this site:
There should be:
1. an adaptor to put in the bottem sleeve of the player
2. a cable one side mini format USB for connection to the adaptor
and the other side normal format USB to fit into your computer
[see page 7 of the pdf manual]
If not provided you should contact the seller.

Earphone and speakers causeing problems

Plugging anything other than the proprietary earbuds into that jack can damage the headphone jack. No one i know of has successfully replaced the headphone jacks alone - call Creative and see if you are still in warranty, because that player will need to be replaced

Creative zen media player 16 gb

im confused what version of zen you have.

For a Zen, all you have to do is boot into Recovery Mode, select "Reload Firmware", download the US firmware version, and install it.

Zen Vision: m does not load past the Logo screen.

After you turn on the player, put your ear up to the back side of it and keep listening for about 2 minutes. If the hard drive eventually stops spinning or makes a repeated clicking noise over and over in a repeated pattern then the hard drive is bad. It sounds to me like that is the case. You will need to get the hard drive replaced. You should take it to a technician, or you can also do it yourself, but be careful. The parts inside are delicate and easy to damage.

Creative Zen Vision:M

I can't say this will work for you, but I had exactly the same problem (I think the clicking noise has something to do with the hard disk being slightly dislodged - possibly after dropping it?). I found that giving the side of the Zen a sharp smack on my knee sorted it out.
