Recently a part of my headphone jack got stuck in the plug and so I can't use that plug anymore. I am using the audio plug in the back of my computer now but it's definitely made for a different form of audio like speakers. I'm wondering if there's any way I can program this plug into outputting the same kind of audio the front plug would. Thanks.

It sounds like you're using the "line out" jack, and I don't know of anyway to use software to convert it to standard audio.

Im not sure if you can configure it to work that way. You may want to try getting a USB audio device which will give you a high quality headphone jack right out of your USB port. You can get one of these at geeks.com for around $5

Thanks, vb. That's much better than paying geek squad to unjam it I'm sure.

If you can see the broken piece and it is hollow, mix up a small amount of epoxy
I say epoxy because I don't believe superglue gel has the tensile strength
Get a drop on the end of a toothpick and push it carefully into the broken piece
Don't push real hard or you will deform the pin and make it harder to remove
Let it cure for a day and pull it out
