That is a part of the headphone jack (it is physically broken). you would need to completely tear apart the computer, and then de-solder the current jack from the main board and solder in a new one. The easier cheaper method would be to get one of these: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=usb%20headphone%20jack&sprefix=usb+headphone+ja%2Caps&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Ausb%20headphone%20jack&ajr=2

 

Unless you know how to take apart a computer and use a soldering iron, I would recommend the usb to 3.5mm adapter. (You could bring it to a pc repair shop but it won't be cheap call for a quote first).

 

If you chose to replace the headphone jack: take the computer apart first and order the exact replacement jack. This can be very difficult to find as usually there are not specific part #'s. In some cases you can not even find a new jack and then the main board would need to be replaced.

 

This is an example of a replacement jack (yours likely differs and this is why it is important to order based on make and model of the computer open the computer to verify visually when ordering): http://www.ebay.com/itm/2pcs-3-5mm-laptop-desktop-replacement-audio-jack-Marking-No-31KAB-/221390062811?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item338be044db

I have this problem.  Finally I bought a 'Headset Headphone Microphone Jack Converter Adaptor USB' on Ebay for about $4.00.
