Windows 7 - Sounds coming out of built-in pc speaker but NOT out of headphone jacks (front or rear)

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?

if you try to click another speakers option in your list and click Set Default and then Apply. Test sound afterwards
