Yea finding the socket is going to be near impossible. I will live with the speakers it has, it was a garage sale laptop I found real cheap. Thanks for the help it is cool there are people out there that realy know their stuff. This is almost as good as my lcd inverter problem I had and some guy told me to solder some traces together to make my screen work and it did work. It all helps the community which is cool.
