    Have you checked the volume in control panel and adjust it?
    Or have you either plug in the jack to correct slot?
    try plugging in to different slot and see what happen.

    Btw is the plug in front of the computer or behind, also whether your computer is new or...?

    Are you using onboard sound, or is it a separate sound card?

    Check in your device manager for any yellow question or exclamation marks next to your sound devices.

    If that all checks out ok, there`s a chance your sound card has failed.

    If the soundcard has failed, you can`t fix it. You didn`t say whether you were using onboard or a separate sound card.

    If it`s onboard sound and it`s failed, then you`ll need to purchase a pci soundcard.

    Regards Howard :)
