I fried the headphone jack on my HP P7-1549 desktop today, by removing the soundblasters cable from it while one of the few speakers linked to it was still on. It made a buzzing sound and since then the is no sound or very little unless I crank it up at maximum. A few years ago the same happened with an older pc and I succeeded to remap the headphone jack to any of the 5 others on the back using win7's regedit and old Realtek drivers : https://www.sevenforums.com/sound-audio/2197-realtek-hd-changing-jack-output-reassignments-fix.html Since then no one seems to have found a way to do the same with Windows 10. I would love a programmer to make a simple software to choose which jack to remap easily. Anyone can lend a hand? My only workaround for now is a little usb drive with a portable soundcard, but I hope it's temporary.
