    So I have had this problem for a few months. It was an issue before because USB audio works completely fine, like my USB headset. My USB headset broke so I bought a normal headset. The issue I"m having is this:

    One of the audio jacks doesn't even read my device when I plug it in, whether it be speakers or my headset. The other one on the back, however, reads it but only reads the left side. And whenever I play a game or listen to music, the speakers or headset just make fuzzy crackling noises. Now the microphone jack in the front doesn't read my mic at all, and the back one says it reads it but still doesn't seem to work.

    Could this be an issue with my motherboard or just the connections of the audio jacks themselves?

    Not quite enough info yet to go on. Is this audio card built into the motherboard or is it a PCI card? Something simple we can try to start, go to the control panel, open devise manager, go to sound devises, click on you sound card, uninstall it then reboot windows. Windows should install new drivers. See if this gets your sound back. If not we'll try something else.
