    Hissing/Crackling in headphone audio

    Alright, so my issue is that there's a slight hiss and occasional crack when I'm listening to whatever. The hiss is only slight because I fiddled with the EQ until it wasn't as loud. I can still hear it, but it's not as much. My question is; Is this a hardware issue, or a software issue? And if...

I observed that the other drive would not have...

    Hello, I tried to remove my PATA HDD (fujitsu mhv2060ah) from my laptop and one of the pins broke off. According to this schematic: Pin number 44 broke off. I turned on my laptop and everything went fine, slow as usual. Was this pin important? Will it change anything. Thanks in advance.
