I have had this problem for as long as i can remember but it never really annoyed me enough to find a solution until recently. I have the HP Pavilion a1324n computer tower which has ports on the front in two different sections. There's a section 3 down (below my LightScribe DVD Writer/CD-Writer and DVD-ROM) and another section just below that which is in a slide down compartment. In the top one there are ports for a SmartMedia/xD, CompactFlash I/II, MMc / SD, Memory Stick / PRO, USB 2.0. In the bottom section there are ports for 2 more USB 2.0's, Headphone and mic, and a couple others I don't use. My USB ports and others haven't had any problems other than the headphone jack. When ever I try and plug headphones in I get no sound out of them, and my speakers don't mute either. As far as I can tell it can't even tell that I've plugged anything in. The speakers I have are the Microsoft digital sound system 80 which hooks up through a USB in the back of the tower. I'm not sure if you need anymore information but I tried to list as much as possible. Anyways, if anyone could help out with this it would be awesome.
