i recently snapped a head phone jack in the panel on the front of my pc. because of this my speakers dont have sound because the the jack is now muteing the panel as it should. i unplug the audio cable from the mother board conected to the front panel,but stil no sound comes from the speakers. i`ve read than u can disable the front panel so only the rear panel is used. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Presumably a desktop computer -- open the case and follow audio lead from the front panel to the motherboard -- you can usually just pull the connector.
i tried to get the broken jack out. the wires going to the front panel are all sealed in a plastic unit. so i cant get behind it and because the jack snapped of inside i cant find anything to hook it out with as theres no space around the edge.

See if you can find a drill bit fine enough and bore into it (gently)
