Well ive got one here for ya!
My PC has a set of audio plugs in the back, and then a green and red one in the front.
Whenever i plug the headphone into the green socket in the front,
it plays out the headphones and does not play out the main speakers!
That is until . . .
The green audio jack suddenly broke off and dissapeared!
Real Bummer, but i thought 'yeh i can get by just using the back plug', right?
wrong! it still registers that the headphone is in or something and wont play out the main speakers!
soo i was wondering if theres a way to tell it that theres no headphones in or something??
If i crank the main speakers up to full, i can faintly hear music!
ive already tried uninstalling the Realtek sound driver and that so yeh!

When you state it broke off, are you referring to the the jack port in the case? If so you can open the case and unplug the jack port from the motherboard. This may also require you to unplug the mic port that is right next to it, since it is not uncommon that two share a common plug to the motherboard.
You need to open that case anyway to make sure the plog does not rest against the motherboard and short the motherboard out.

I would take Aklan's advice as fast as possible. That broken piece may move around. If you can look at the back of the socket, having opened the cas, maybe the piece is still sitting there and you can poke it out. If so, there would be no need to unplug the device.
