First unplugged everything and put the desktop on a table. Then took two thin bobby pins and took the painted round tips off with a pair of pliers. If you have tweezers, then you can use them instead of Bobby pins. Now gently worked a pin on the top and one on the bottom of the piece that was stuck. Then wiggled it forward, and put the pieces back into place when they slipped out. Try this two to three times you will get success.

Yes, that’s normal. If something is connected to the jack in the front panel of the CPU, the jack at the back of the CPU that connects directly to the sound card will not work until you remove the plug connected to the jack in the front panel.

If the plug broke and the other piece was left stuck inside the jack, you need to remove that piece inside the jack to restore sound. If you can’t remove that piece stuck inside the jack, another way to restore sound is to disconnect the cable of the jack in the front panel from the motherboard. This will disable the audio jacks in the front panel.

Usually, the cable of the front panel audio jacks is bundled with the cable of the front panel USB ports. The end of the cable is labeled. You just need to check carefully which of the connectors belong to the audio jacks so you won’t accidentally disable the front panel USB ports.
