I can't get my headphones to work.The speakers are plugged in the back & work fine,but when I plug the phones in the front nothing happens.Not very techie I know but it puzzles me.

is it the volume control just under the cd drawer?

Into a PC that used to have on-board sound.

hi guys - there is no volume control under the cd draw & no I haven't installed a sound card, i am using the one that was supplied with the pc

Are you trying to play a normal audio cd or an mp3/wav, etc disk?

My PC has 2 front mounted sockets that the Headphones fit. Headphones and Microphone. Has yours?

Some headphones have a Volume control on their cable. Have yours?

Are the front ports connected to anything?

Sometimes (often?) the headphone sockets in the front of modern CD/DVD drives are non-functional.

have your headphones ever worked or have they just stopped?

I'm sure (90%) I read somwhere that these headphone sockets will only play traditional audio cds, nothing else, try a normal audio cd (if you aren't already) and see how it goes.
