hsingbora,
Welcome to SF. Try making and unmaking the connection with the headphone jack. Also blast some air into the female socket. I also like to use a little contact cleaner on the jack, just a little and make and unmake connections a bunch and see if that free's up the spring contacts inside.

Try the rear mic connection and report back. If this is the rear connection then try the front.

You need to install the drivers for the onboard audio. At the moment it is using the default Windows audio driver.

Make and model of the motherboard would help. Then we can point you in the right direction for which driver you need.

Looks like this should be the motherboard,

Mercury-pc.com

and it has the IDT audio on it. You can get a driver for it from here,

Mercury - Expect More

No idea if it is even for Windows 7 or Vista, but if it is only for XP it should still work, You may have to use compatibility mode,

Compatibility Mode

to get it to install if it is XP only.
