Hey guys I have windows7 and when I go to my sound card options the headphones option always says that there is no device even though I have my headphones pluged into the front 3.5mm green jack that is listed in headphones. Any ideas?
P.S. I tried updating drivers.

Did you put the PC together yourself? I'm assuming the front audio jack ins't plugged in right on the interior connection.

right-click on speaker at bottom right


right-click on all the options there and on test


my headphones come under there as speakers (it is through a pass through attached to keyboard)

I did put it together myself. I even have a few cords loose from the case haha so they are probably the problem. For the most part I did a good job, I got everything to fit and work nicely. The wires left over are labeled HD audio (my brother in law said you needed a sound card for that, I personally don't know) then there is the restart button (I plugged this into every available spot on my mobo and it never worked but honestly I would never use it even if I could so I don't care about it). As for the HD audio wire I really don't think there are any places I can put it. I looked for a very long time and couldn't find the correct spot for it.

Right mine shows up as headphone but even though they are plugged into that slot it says "Not plugged in"

Your mobo's manual will have a guide as to where to plug everything in. Plugging them into the wrong places might cause some damage. And the HD audio wires are why your headphones don't work, they run from the mobo to the headphone jack on the front of your case.

That Makes sense. There really is no place for that cord though. I'll look it over again but there is nothing I can find.

Ok I found it.
Now that I have it working the audio sounds great through it however I can hear this light highpitch sound.
It almost sounds like I can hear the mobo operating lightly in the background.

Standard issue with onboard sound for the most part.
