I am unable to hear anything coming out of my headphone jacks in the front or rear of my pc.  
I can hear sound out of my pc speaker (cd's, mp3's and windows system sounds).
How can I fix this?

jusf tor the record - your jack connectors on desktop have different color and you are using the one with green color, right?
if you try to click another speakers option in your list and click Set Default and then Apply. Test sound afterwards
