Power on, Press Delete or F2 key depends on your Bios Manufacture (often Delete) to Going to Bios Setting. Find Integrated Devices or Browsing in this Topic to find out the setting for Sound and Enbable the Front jack.

Do the earphones work from the socket on the rear of the tower?

If they do, it's possible the fron socket is not wired up at all, or incorrectly wited to the motherboard.

Look inside the case and see if you can tell that the sockets are connected to the motherboard.
