Sorry about not replying sooner, I've been really busy lately. I finally got a change to speak with my brother that gave me this computer and he said that there is no cable hooked up for the headphone port to work on the front of the computer and that I have to use the one on the back.
Thanks for your time though.

I think I'll just buy a USB Gaming Headset.

Is the headphone jack on the front part of the case itself?
If so then the cables should be inside the case somewhere near the front panel.
You will just have to find the corresponding connector on the MOBO.

To answer your question, the headphone jack is on the CD Drive, not the case of the computer. I googled up a picture really quick to show you what I mean.

I did some more searching on Google with different key words and I came across this post on a different forum:

The headphone jack on the CDROM drive will only provide sound from an audio CD in the drive. If you want general computer sound to come through the headphones you'll have to run them from the jack on the back of the PC.


If that is the case, then I suppose I'll just have to use the jack on the back of my computer for headphone sound. I never knew how the one. Perhaps I'll look for a headphone extension cord, or something of the sort. I think you and I have figured out my problem though. Thanks for the time and support.

Yep that would be the answer.
I think you can purchase a extension for the Headphones for less then 15 dollars for a 10 foot cord.
