    will short circuit in audio output damage the motherboard?

    Could anyone tell me if a short circuit in the audio output would damage the motherboard or the on-board sound card? i had a set of headphones plugged in and one of the channel was short circuit due to ripped wire, could anyone tell me if this would do any damage to the onboard sound card or the mother board? thank you so much! oh by the way my motherboard is asus p5q-e

    plug in your desktop speakers to the same jack and see if you get sound from both channels.
    If so, then I would say you got lucky.

    Re: will short circuit in audio output damage the motherboard?

    power surges rarely damage properly designed power supplies. Typically, a power surge bypasses power supply to enter motherboard directly. Supplies more often fail due to manufacturing defects and due to humans who don't first demand written specifications.I also had a debate on the same issue with my colleague and he says that a power supply failure damaged his motherboard. He therefore speculates that all power supplies can damage motherboards.

    In Reality; If a power supply damaged a motherboard, then failure was created by the human who did not first demand written Numerical specs. Power supply should never damage motherboard nor anything else inside a computer IF power supply contains circuits. Circuits that were even required and essential 30 years ago.
