My laptop recently fell off a table while an audio cable was plugged in to the headpone jack. Of course it hit right on the cable, and busted out the jack. And the onboard speakers bypass thru the jack, so basically I have no sound. I manage the bands songlist (for our cover song learning/practicing), so I really need this. The computer has Windows 7, still works great, except for the sound. While looking into what to do I have discovered that there are USB audio adapters. Looks like this is the solution I need. Has anyone ever used one these? How do they work for you? Thanks for any input!
