I cannot hear any sound on my computer whatsoever. And I think I know why. One day I was listening to music on my desktop through my earphones. I guess I was in a hurry to go somewhere so I quickly ripped out the earphones from the jack.
When I got back I realized that the tip of the earphone-jack connector was broken off and--even worse--it was stuck inside of the jack!
So my problem is that my computer is still recognizing the earphones (which are useless now!) which automatically stops it from playing through the speakers.
I have tried to get the tip of the earphone out of the jack, but I don't think I can do that without opening up the computer (which I don't want to do because I don't have the know-how).
So here's my question: Is there a way to stop my computer from automatically using the earphones, without taking them out? If there is, then how?
