    I figured that wouldn't be the problems but I'm sure it does happen.
    How old is the laptop? Do you have a set of computer speakers or any other speakers (not headphones) that you could plug in to it? Maybe the sound card/motherboard is just broken..
    Edit: you said it is only a few days old, maybe see if another set of external computer speakers or using the port as an auxiliary port for a stereo or something if it works, maybe using headphones with a mic acts screwy in the port? Although I've never had that be an issue.
    If it's only a couple of days old call the laptop manufacturer, that never hurts.

    Not a problem! Let us know what they say/do/if they can fix it.

    This may sound dumb but did you plug them in all the way?

    You know...such an obvious question and easy to assume he did, but one that shouldn't be overlooked at the same time.

    I didn't contact my manufacturer yet but I think I will now because I did a full wipe on my computer and reinstalled all of the drivers and still no help, so I assume it's a hardware problem.

    Yeah that's odd. Just make sure they at plugged in all the way, literally the only thing I didn't think to try. But it does sound like a possible hardware defect.
