Thanks Randy. I've done that but when I go to Playback Devices there is no headphones icon to select. Any idea why that would be? And how can I enable headphones when they are not there to be enabled?

Hi Randy, thanks it's actually worked in the front jack this time, but only after I rebooted the laptop. Interestingly, the headphones still don't appear as an icon to select on the task bar ... but it works and that's all that matters! Thanks for your help, much appreciated.
