Disabling a headphone jack in a laptop

Rotting MeatRotting Meat Registered User regular
My friend's computer has no sound, and I'm trying to find a way to fix it. She was carrying her laptop around while listening to music via headphones. Computer drops to the floor, landing on the headphone jack. Since then the headphone jack doesn't work, but also the computer speakers do not play music. I'm assuming the computer still thinks a headphone is attached and is turning off the laptop's speakers; how can I get around this (or at least test it)? (Windows XP)

Is there something in device manager to disable a headphone jack and restore sound via the speakers? Any other options to try?
