My son has a HP DV4 laptop computer with a damaged earphone jack. In order to hear, he has to hold the plug up against the jack.
I think replacing this jack will require major surgery, in that the whole machine has to be disassembled to get at the jack.
I had until recently a desktop computer where I could assign functions to the various jacks, such that they could either be inputs or outputs. I wonder if there is a way to reprogram the mic jack to be the headphone jack, because it is still in good condition.
Does anybody know how this might be achieved?
