    Searching for "3.5mm stereo audio jack" on www.mouser.com should help you locate a replacement part. Another option would be to buy a $20 USB sound card. Newegg has several to choose from.

    Thank you.

    Mouser.com does not have part. Thank you for the site advice.

    DigiKey.com does not have part. Sent photos to Seth.

    USB add in card won't work with Laptop Mobo.

    The problem I'm having is the 3 solder points at the rear of the sound jack. I can't locate a part in this style. I would like a direct replacement. I can't find a dead motherboard on ebay.com at a cost effective price point. New boards are not cost effective.

    I need some more help or suggestions on locating part.

    USB sound card will work just fine as long as there is an unused USB port on that laptop. XP, Vista, 7, and OSX all support USB sound card without loading any additional drivers. I understand that you might not want to use a USB port for this purpose, but if you can't find the correct replacement part, using a USB sound card is the next best option.

    I realize that tnis is an old thread but I ran into this same problem last night. I could not find a replacement so I went old school and repaired it. I wrapped thread around the jack for a little support and then I used JB weld to rebuild the jack housing. it was stronger than the original when I was finished.

    USB sound cards can be used with an extension cable, they are at USB 2 standard
