Windows 7: Headphone output messed up after disk defrag

Headphone output messed up after disk defrag

I (manually) defragmented my C:\ drive, and now the headphone jack doesn't work. When I plug in headphones, I just hear a constant static buzz and no audio. I've tried this with 2 separate pairs, both of which worked just fine on this computer before the defrag, and I've also confirmed that they work on other devices.

Apparently the drive is set for automatic defrag once a week, and apparently it did an automatic defrag 3 days ago with no issues. It's the manual defrag that seems to have messed up the jack. As far as I can tell, though, the defrag didn't cause any other problems.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Well I don't know if I can help you or not because a defrag should not and I don't believe can interfere with your head phones.
Filling in your system specs completely would help others help you.

Thanks. It doesn't make sense to me either, but that's the only thing I've done.

I've updated my system specs at least partially. I'll have to do some digging to figure out some of the others.

Disk defrag stops analyzing at 62% and doesn't go any further. So I downloaded Defraggler and ran it. It worked but it wouldn't defrag down to 0% fragmentation, It still shows 4% after defrag.
