Soundcard Connection Issue

Hi

I've posted this in the cables forum, but thought it might be more visible here :)


On the back of my PC soundcard is a line-out port so as to channel the music to an external source. I've had this connected for a fair while now, and I removed the cable today due to purchasing a longer one. However on removal, a small part of the connector snapped off and I am unable to remove it from the socket. It's annoying because this effectively means I cannot listen to music via my PC.

Any tips on getting broken connectors out?!

Thanks

I've done something similar before...

Remove soundcard, stand it up so socket is facing upwards
Get a very small nail or similar with a flat head about 2mm diameter
Put a tiny drop of superglue on nail head
Insert nail carefully
Wait until you can hope it has bonded to the broken part
Cross your fingers and pull nail out

I like that idea - bordering on genius...
