Windows 7: Windows 7 Not recognizing Logitech G230 Headset

Windows 7 Not recognizing Logitech G230 Headset

I recently bought a Logitech G230 headset for my PC. I plugged it into multiple audio jacks and I still couldn't hear anything coming through the speakers of the headset. It turns out the problem is that Windows isn't recognizing the headphones. I'm currently not at my home, so I don't remember exactly what it said. But it was something along the lines of the headset not being plugged in. What can I do to fix this? I tried plugging it into the front panel 3.5 mm headphone jacks as well as the ones on the back, also, there's no drivers that come with the headset.

Please help ASAP. I really want to use my new headset!

Try the headset in a different PC, if it acts the same there it suggests the headset is defective.

The only two audio jacks you should be plugging it into is the Headphone jack on the front panel and the GREEN speaker jack on the rear. On the front panel jacks, as this is a custom build do you have the HD Audio connection from the front panel plugged into the motherboard? Has the front panel jacks ever worked?

"Windows" doesn't recognize headphones as a device. The sound chip may recognize it but that's all.
