Maybe some can shed light on this. I have a XP SP2 system and the sound would go in and out, depending how hard it was jiggled. The board with the mic/headphone jack and hub ports seems messed up so how do I replace it? On the same note the two ports are not hi-speed so data transferring is very slow. Can I replace them with more efficient one's?. It's funny because the RAM/CPU are sufficiently sized. Point me in the direction. Thank you

I guess that I'm not getting a vision of the problem...are you saying that you have a loose connection between speakers and sound card/chip?

If so, that can be remedied by using a PCI sound card, provided you have an empty slot for it.

Ditto with USB...onboard function can be easily/cheaply replaced by adding a USB 2.0 card, providing you have an empty slot for same.

System manufacturer and model?

Na, he meant who made your computer (ie Compaq Gateway HP etc) and the model number of the computer. Or if its custom built manufacturer and model number of your motherboard.

my bad.. it is custom built. I pulled up the device manager thinking to look there and look all smart but that didn't work. Point me in the direction?

SIW is a freeware which will show the make and model of your motherboard, it can be downloaded here.

Have you tried different headphones to make sure that the problem isn't with them?

Those jacks are soldered to the motherboard, replacing those could be complicated. Each one of those jacks has three legs soldered to the motherboard, so you would need a soldering iron, not a gun, a solder sucker to remove the old solder, the specific jack, and solder. It would be simpler to just replace the onboard audio with a PCI card as hamluis suggested earlier.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
