Hey guys, this machine was working fine but now the front and back audio jacks stopped working. It's internal speaker is working fine so everything points to the audio jacks hardware, just checking to see if anything can be done to know for sure?

Boot a live linux disk and see if the jacks work or not.

Could be a bad chipset for Ethernet or PM does not have the driver in it's kernel if you are booting an older version. Boot Mint 18.3 Cinnamon and see if it detects Ethernet.

Doesn't work but I tried another pc and same deal so maybe there's something up with the wired powerline adapter I use so let's focus on the audio issue for now please?

So it works in Parted Magic but not in Windows? I would reinstall the Audio Driver. If a Realtek HD audio driver open settings and select Disable Front Jack Detection.

 

Some Realtek HD managers are OEM specific. You can find the icon in Control Panel using Large  or Small Icon View.
