Audio coming through with crackling noise

Robert Andrews

Running Windows 10, I had a mic plugged in to the port on the front of my computer and accidentally had the volume cranked way to high. The speakers made a loud popping noise, and sound stopped working completely in both my front and rear audio jacks. Sound wont work in windows 10, but when i boot into XP, the rear jack works (Half works, thats where the crackling noise comes in). I know its not my speakers, cause i tried them with another computer and they work fine. Did i wreck my audio jack somehow?
