    (This doesn't necessarily need to go in this forum section but I could not find another section which best fit it.)

    I use an (Alienware) laptop and while moving around accidentally pulled the headphone wire, and like all laptops the hole is located on the side. The metal bit bent very slightly but ripped off the small plastic ring around the hole and (I think) shifted something inside it.
    I now have to use the any of the surround sound connections because the headphone one does not detect anything.

    I want to know the easiest and quickest way to fix such a problem. I have tried calling the support line, and they should transfer me to the corporate support department (ordered internationally through a local agent; on my previous support call they transfered me and explained why), but they refuse to do so and I think they do not understand me.

    Please help me, this is very irritating..

    Can you post a picture of the damaged part?

    Typically with Laptops there really isn't much fixing you can do. Practically the entire thing is one piece.
