Sorry if this is the wrong forum, it's kind of ambiguous in that a microphone is an external device, but my issue in question is in regard to the microphone input jack located on the case itself.
A few times where I have walked away from my computer, I have accidentally yanked at the inputs on the front and it got to the point where the microphone input was really sensitive, and I had to get it in exactly the right position to be recognised by the computer - something I could live with.
However, it went a step further tonight and the computer is recognising me put a jack into the microphone slot, but I'm not actually hearing any sound when speaking in to it (through Skype, and Windows' "Listen to this device" feature). I have tried the same headset on another laptop and it's fine.
I want to avoid using the rear slots of the motherboard, because I have out outputs from there, and it's a pain having the wire all the way around the back.
My question is, is it feasible to replace the microphone input located on the front? if so, what do I need to buy?
Thanks a lot
