    Hello-
    Part of the headphone plug came off in the headphone socket. We've tried to pull it out of the hole but we can't even see it. We can't get any headphones in it and so we have no sound since the computer thinks we have the headphones in.
    Does anyone know how I can get access to what's stuck in the socket?
    Thnak you.

    Sounds like you will have to get 'behind' the socket and push the pin out with a small object...like a needle or straight pin.

    Uh, you open up the case! Your PC is a Desktop unit, so this is not major surgery.

    You do not say whether you are using onboard sound or a PCI soundcard. Either way locate the socket, examine it and remove the broken piece in the best way possible.
