    Hi


    I broke off my 3.5mm cord for speakers in front headphone jack. Ive tried everybody everybody has said everywhere (im pretty good with computers but just had half my teeth out, i physically can take pain killers and i cant think) but cant figure out how to shut off the front jack as it thinks something is plugged in and wont let the back register anything. I am leaving the country in 48 hours have no time to get fixed before go and to what point i just need right now so i can put a movie on for my boy to go sleep. any help asap would be awesome! thanks

    :)
