Windows 7: Front input headphone jack does not work

Front input headphone jack does not work

I recently run into this problem. The first time I tried to use it, it seems that the green jack for my headphones doesn't work at all. Plug in any pair and they don't even recognize it being there, as seen in Control Panel.

What might be the problem? The case has a bad jack, or the connector on the motherboard?

Do you have any other headphone to try at the front jack?

Is it in fact... hooked up to the motherboard?

There's a header on the motherboard and a plug from the front panel assembly that fits the header. If it is plugged in, make sure everything is lined up correctly.

Yes it is, that's like, the first thing I did. What concerns me is that the length of the cable is a little short, and the motherboard connector with the pins is really, really far away from it, so that makes it a serious stretch. It just barely makes the distance.

EDIT: Well, those headphones have never failed me in anything until they totally died. They've worked on my iPod, my MacBook, everything else except this.

Does it have a program something like HD Audio Deck to configure it? If so go in there & have it set. On mine I have to enable the front panel.

Nah, it's just control panel that says it doesn't work. I THINK it acknowledges the fact that there's a plug or something there, I don't actually know, I can't get into Windows.
