How do I fix my broken audio out port?
Or at least I think it is broken.
For the past couple of days, I haven't been able to produce sound from my computer's audio out port. At first, I thought it might have been my keyboard (Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2013), but I tested it w/o all the wires connected, and nothing. The only sound that does come out of my headphones (and it comes out of any type. I've tried some cheap earbuds, iPhone headphones, and a Turtle Beach (X12) headset.) is a crackling noise. (The noise crackles to what sounds like 3-5 steps, which is odd, but it's all it does which is why it is hard to explain.) It only happens when I have something with audio playing.
The audio port (and my headphones) worked perfectly until the other day.
Any suggestions of how to go through with this?
