So for some reason, my sound card isn't working properly all of the sudden. I'm not sure if the problem originated because I recently updated my OS to windows 8.1 or what, but the jack where i plug into for sound (the green one on the rear of the computer) isn't working for my external speakers anymore. I'm quite sure the problem isn't the speakers since I tried using three different ones and none of them seem to be working. I tried checking the settings and according to my computer, everything should be working fine, but I can't hear anything. I have tried using my headphones that can be connected to a usb slot and that works fine, but whenever I try using the green audio port thats when I have trouble receiving my sound. What can I do to fix this?

Install drivers for your sound card.
Your USB headphones use their own onboard sound device.

How do I do that? I thought my sound card was already installed since they were working fine about a month or so ago. Should I just uninstall it and then simply reinstall it? I just wanna make sure thats all I have to do because last time I tried that for my display adapter I couldn't see anything on my monitor until I had to jump through some complicated hoops to get it working again.

Go to the sound card manufacturer's website, download the drivers for your sound card, and install them.
