My Inspiron 640m's earphones output has become gradually looser over the years, and now it's not working anymore. I tried disassembling the laptop to try and fix it with no success. It is a problem for me since I mostly use earphones when I'm using it.
A possible solution to that would be to reconfigure my laptop so that the microphone input can be used as a phones output. I'm pretty sure it is feasible, since when I connect earphones in it while music is playing, I'll be able to hear the music through the earphones for a split-second before I get a popup asking me if I want to use the port as a line in or for a microphone. I think it supports stereo playback as well since I could hear tell the difference between the left and right channels.
I looked for Sigmatel Audio drivers and got the latest ones, but I couldn't find a way to reconfigure the ports.
Does anyone know how to achieve that?
Thanks in advance,
