comment Script to change Computername/hostname causing bizarre Terminal behavior
Great! Very pleased to be able to help. I've written an answer. BTW, I feel that @MorganR deserves some credit here too, but sadly I don't see a way to do that in the bounty system...

comment Macbook Pro Sound doesn't work after Yosemite update
Your second screenshot says "Digital Out". Is there a light shining inside your headphone port? In which case, the port is stuck in digital out mode (which I believe has no volume control).
