    Hi,

    My audio headphone jack is not working anymore and I want to use my line-in as my audio out. Since I don't use them that much. So I can use headphones/speakers again.

    I have tried programs like LineIn, MIDI config and SoundSource but they don't fix my problem, any other software suggestions?

    My secondary (hardware) solution is the IMic from Griffin, or somthing like that.

    thanks Alex

    It's an input so it won't function as an output. A USB audio card should do the trick.

    This is a hardware issue, not a software issue. Short of opening up the computer and re-wiring it, there's nothing you can do to make the input function as an output.
