I don't know which model computer you have, but on all of my older computers the only headphone jack on the front of the system is the one on the CD-ROM drive. That jack will only ouput sound from a music CD playing in the CD-ROM drive. If you want to hear sounds playing from your sound card (i.e. music playing from files running on your hard drive), you need to plug the headphones into the speaker jacks on the sound card, or use a splitter and switch so that you can direct the sound either to the headphones or the speakers.
