Currently on my notebook computer I just have two audio ports (one for headphones and the other for a microphone). The microphone port works fine however, my headphone port is damaged somehow. When I plug in my headphones or my 5.1 speaker system, it will produce sound but only if I push down on the end of the cable where it is connected into the port. Without anything in the headphone port, my computer will not play any sounds. So to fix this I will plug in my headphones and then put a paperweight on the end of the headphone cable right next to the port on my computer and then sound will be produced. When I look at the port it seems to be really loose inside. My question is though, since my computer will not play sounds without that port being pushed down...If I buy this-> CREATIVE AUDIGY 2 ZS NOTEBOOK PCMCIA SOUND BLASTER CARD, will my computers sound go through the card instead of my headphone port. Will the sound be re routed to the card instead of the damaged port. Or does my loose headphone port need to be working inorder for sound to come out of that card. Any help will be appreciated!
