     Hello, I have a desktop PC and 3 hours ago something awkward happened : my headphones, 2 years old, literally blew up and my computer shutdowned. I was pretty sure that the headphones were the only thing that brok and the computer shutdowned so it wouldn't do damage to the motherboard and other components. I tried my mic ( that is separate from the headphones ) and it didn't work. After that I tested it on a laptop and it work, same thing with another headphones.

      From this moment I though all my back jack ports are broken. Is it possible that even the front ones are broken ? The back ports are from the motherboard. A sound card would solve the problem or something else happened that can be fixed in another way ?

you don't have a lot of options.

you've done the obvious - reboot the PC.

have you plugged the headphones into the front port to find out, it's the only way you'll know.

next would be to reinstall the mobo audio drivers.  long shot but worth crossing off the list.

 

if the headphones were the 3.5mm jack type, try the USB variety.

and as you state, an addon sound card would be another option.


Instead of reading this, why not do a backup of your PC.

You won't regret it.

Can you explain a little better what you mean by blew up?

Well, I was listening to music as always and at one moment there was a really loud sound, like an explosion. At that moment my pc shutdowned and the headphones are now broken.

Did it explode, as in disassemble into many fragments/catch on fire? Otherwise the loud noise was probably just part of whatever error it was that caused the PC to shut down.
