Well, since we have no idea what kind of machine you have, it begs the question... are your front jacks even hooked up inside the computer? Have you ever been able to listen to headphones using the front jack?

Have you tried installing the drivers for your sound card.

It's possible the front jacks aren't even hooked up to the motherboard/sound card. Open the case up and see if the wires from the front jacks are connected to anything.
