Check to make sure the output device is set correctly.

Click Start, type Sound in the Start Search box, and then click Sound in the search results at the top of the Start menu.

Click the Playback tab. A check mark is displayed next to the default device. For most users, the default device is Speakers.

Click the item that you want to set as the default device, and then click Set Default.

Click OK to save your settings and to close the Sound dialog box.

How is the headset connected? USB, or in the green port?

If the cable is long enough, try plugging it into the port on the back.

I think there may be a way to set the front port as the main sound output, but I'm not sure how.

yes


EDIT: Well accidentally i kicked the power cord and pc turned off, when it came back on, i turned on my game. and a minute after i turned on sound came on through my headphones and it now works. So whatever is going on it works for now but i would still llike to try to figure out the problem in case it happens again
