Default PC won't recognize headphones

Just broke a pin in a cable for my subwoofer so my speakers don't work any more. I do have headphones, but I can't get the computer to recognize them. They make a sound when they are plugged in, but no audio. In the sounds and devices section, it also doesn't show anything. I am not sure if the pc does recognize headphones in this area though. Any thoughts?

I don't know, how do I find this out? I wasn't able to find it in control panel/system/hardware but I may have overlooked it.

...Uh it says no sound card found, but...I mean I'm pretty sure I have a sound card. Whatever came in the PC anyhow, it is an old Sony Viao.

Download and install this:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu...id=934&os_id=7

And it should fix it.

After I accept the agreement to download, it brings me to a directory with nothing in it.

Ok,These are direct from the manufacturers website (Not Sony,the manufacturer of the sound card it self)
