Onboard Realtek I/O and front panel I/O not working.

So i have an Asus Maximus V extreme (Regret that decision) and im using the onboard audio chip, its a Realtek chip and it has been working fine (4 months) until now.

I wanted to play music from my music player/cd changer and set up one speaker that was connected to my computer to the music player i have. I just put both the computer speaker wires and music player wires into one speaker and i played my music fine.

When i came back to my pc and plugged in my 3.5mm headphones to the front port realtek didnt alert me that it was plugged in so i investigated and found that it didnt even detect the 3.5mm plug. I then tried the rear panel where my speakers that i used with the music player were plugged into and the rear panel didnt detect it becoming unplugged then plugged back in.

I have uninstalled the drivers, checked the bios, and various other audio ports on the I/O panel but the I/O panel on the front and rear are still not recognizing any 3.5mm plug.

I fear that i may have blown the rear I/O panel due to the electricity going into the speakers from the music player, but that wouldnt explain why my front panel isnt working either....

in windows sound device manager make sure nothing is mutted. then check to see that the speakers are still the main audio device output. realteck has a know bug with amd and nvidia hdmi becoming the main audio output without warning. in the asus or realteck audio in the realteck sound setup on the left screen is two buttons one looks like a cog. click on it and make sure the checkmarks for the front and rear audio are set right.

well i have sound, but the problem is that the I/O panel isnt detecting my speakers as being plugged in and neither is my front panel. Plus nothing is muted. Thanks for helping though.
