Question Front & back audio output jacks malfunction

Sep 25, 2020
After moving my desktop machine, I haven't been able to get sound on my headphones using either the front or back audio jack. It appears as connected in the Realtek HD Audio Manager but I all that comes through are some faint snaps/crackles. This issue has persisted for over a week now. I've confirmed the headphones work on other devices of course. There also doesn't seem to be any loose cabling on the board from what I can tell, though the back panel is mounted directly on anyways. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Any ideas?
