    I had to have the hard drive replaced in my computer due to a defect in the drive. Ever since the hard drive was replaced, the head phone plug-in that is on the face of the tower does not work, but the speaker plug-in that is located in the back of the tower, works just fine.

    I cannot figure out what is wrong. The audio driver installed for my system was obtained from the Dell website along with the majority of my other drivers.
    Any help would be great.

    System Information:
    Dell Dimenstion E310 (Desktop)
    Windows XP Professional SP3
    Audio: Intel Integrated Audio

    Do you know if the front panel audio jack is plugged into the motherboard?

    The actual audio plug in is connected to a circuitboard in the front of the tower. Also connected to this circuitboard are the diagnostic lights and 2 USB ports (which function properly). That circuit is then connected via chord to the motherboard.

    I could not find any loose connections, but that front circuitboard appears to be working properly.
    so could something be wrong with the actual headphone plug in (that connects to that circuit) or could it be a driver error?
