Did it work under Vista?
Double check the connection and wiggle the headset connection. Pull it out and insert it a little at a time listening for audio to come through.
If it doesn't you may have a broken solder point on the inside of the system on the motherboard.

Ok just a thought but have you checked in the volume control in Win7 to see if the headphone volume is turned down or muted?

Hmm Win7 seems to be a little more of a pain to fix this.
Right click on the volume control down by the clock and go to properties or Mixer.
See if there is a headset volume there or a master volume.
Also does your headset have a volume control on it?
