Default No sound from headphone jack?

The headphone jacks on the front of my case arent giving out any sound. What should I do?

One are you sure you have the jacks set-up right. 2. do you have sound at all if not make sure you have your sound driver installed.

Jumper settings, 100% positive. Take the jumpers out of the F_AUDIO panel to use the front ports. Check the motherboard manual to make sure.

Hmm I pulled out the jumpers that the mobo manual listed but still no sound. Any clue on what the cables inside the case look like, theones that run from the case audio jack to the mobo? Having trouble figuring out which ones they are.

are you talking about the headphone on the CD drive? If so, you need to hook the cable up from the back of the drive to the sound card or the CD-IN on the MBD if onboard audio (probably CD-IN on the sound card, too). Its usually 3 little wires.
