Easy solution is to get a USB headset. I'm pretty sure you can get a decent logitech USB headset for < 30$.

Difficult solution is to CAREFULLY disassemble the chassis on your laptop and repair the broken port (you'll likely need some soldering skills, but these ports are not too complicated/tiny to work on by hand if you are careful).

edit: If your laptop is still under warranty, I would just get a USB headset. Not worth voiding your warranty to save 30$. It's probably a bad idea to attempt to repair it yourself, but it can be done; laptops are not easy to take apart without breaking stuff, and are even harder to put back together; and soldering isn't something you want to learn to do on your laptop's motherboard.
