Windows 7: Laptop speakers work, headphones of all kinds don't.

Laptop speakers work, headphones of all kinds don't.

.... yet it all works fine on my Arch Linux installation.

Anyone have any ideas? I thought it was because my headset was effed up, but it turns out that all kinds of headphones just don't work with it. I can't really comprehend the problem because my laptop's built in speakers (which use the same device) WORK PERFECTLY FINE! All settings are default as usual, I tried reinstalling the Realtek driver, restarted many times, etc. No dice.

Thanks

As I said, Arch Linux has 0 problems on the same computer, so it's not the jack.

Edit: I'm almost positive the jack is busted. The reason it works fine in Arch is probably because it chooses to use the Astros over the USB (which they can do) rather than using the 3.5mm jack like I do on Windows since that lets me mix Skype with actual games. So for now I can just run it over USB, unfortunately that means I don't get DD7.1 or mixing Skype w/ games anymore but it'll do until I can get this replaced.
