CPU’s front 3.5mm Headphone Jack not Working

Asked By 70 points N/A Posted on -

I assembled a new PC with the Motherboard being of Gigabyte. The CPU has 3.5mm headphone jack in its front as well as at its back. I usually watch movies in my PC and if I plug the headphones at rear side the wire is short to reach my ears. So when I plug it in the front 3.5mm port there is no sound coming from it. It even doesn't recognise the dvice. I have checked the cables. All are attached fine. Front USB ports are working but headphone port is not. Please help.

Hi Debrajbartels,

I am sorry to hear of you are having these problems.

The scenario you have described is quite common among computer uses.

As it stands it seems that the driver software for your front 3.5mm jack is not installed.

In order to get this jack working, the driver needs to be downloaded and installed.

To find the right driver for your motherboard please visit:


Here you will search for the drivers for your specific motherboard.

Once you have downloaded and installed the drivers, your 3.5mm jack should be working fine.

Thank you
