I'm running XP on a 5 month old HP Pavilion dv9009nr laptop.

I've been placing the laptop on a tilting laptop tray. The notebook has the headphone jack in the front and was interrefering with the bar on the laptoptray that prevents the laptop from falling off the tray when used at an angle.

Now, when I plug in a headset, the speakers are not cancelled out and there is no sound from the headphone.

HP wants me to ship it to them for service...How will I ever exist without it for 5-10 days?

I've kept it backed up and am expecting to ship it to them.

Is there any alternative?

Not sure about that for laptops.

Since they're going to take it in, do so. It also be a good idea to check to see if there is anything else wrong before shipping it out.

no real other option unless you want to void your warrenty and solder a new connector on the motherboard (unwise, very unwise)

When you get it back, I suggest you try an adapter like this to keep the strain off the board
Right angle plug

why won't my laptop work?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
