Right side of headphones isn't working. Pretty sure my PC is the cause.

Hi.

 

Yesterday, I wanted to listen to some msuic, but my headphones only played sound from the left ear. I tried plugging them into my phone, and the music played fine! So I came to the conclusion that my PC was the cause, but I have no idea what to do to fix that. Has anyone encountered a problem like this or knows how to fix it?Thank you!

Do you have both front and rear jacks, if so try the other jack.  If not it can be a job getting at the jack to possibly fix or replace.

I have both front and rear jacks, but I never used the front ones cause they don't even work (I plug in the headphones and the computer doesn't even know they're there).

Front probably never got hooked up to the board, look up your mother board it should have a provision to hook up front jack.  May be as simple finding the wire and putting it on the correct pins on the board.

Checked my motherboard, apparently it's a 775Dual-VSTA. I tried looking online to see if I could find instruction on hooking those front jacks up, but couldn't find any. Also, could the problem be software related? How could I check? I'm a bit scared to unscrew my PC and start doing stuff there, I'm not sure a 14 year old is qualified to do such a thing?

Page 11  Item #24  you will see it marked as to its function, IMO the plugs are of and just inside the case.  Look for a set of wire coming out of the front panel, the push on connectors will have abbreviated makings.  The header #24 will have corresponding markings, maybr get a set of older eye balls on the issue.
