Same port as what you use your speakers for, if you have speakers on that system, or the front of the case.
And despite Slamman's ramblings. Realtek audio and Windows 7 works just fine. No idea how anything he said helps with the problem.

Secondly I said Win7. I have no idea about 8 and frankly I couldn't give 2 rat s**ts about 8.

I'll agree with Wolf on the point of letting us know what computer you're dealing with, In my case, however, it's a known Asus made motherboard with a Realtek sound /codec chip, you can find this out with hardware detection like Astra, 64 bit and 32 bit are covered by Realtek's driver, as I recall, Windows 2K, XP, Vista, 7, all supported, so it was dependent on the year I believe, since I didn't bother to match the chip's model to the driver, and I got what I needed
The color coding is really just a simplified aid, it's entirely likely to change from system to system.

Orange is mic in.
And I know he's talking about headphones, he said that at the start with....no guessing required. What I don't know is where exactly he's plugging them in at on his system; the front or rear ports. Thus I'm trying to get as much detail as possible.
We know the headphones themselves works just fine because he tried them on a laptop, as he also mentioned to start with.
And from the way you made it sound is if the green jack also works as not just the front but also the rear speakers, which is wrong.

Try the required driver, because I know in more then one case, Windows uses an HD audio driver now, but it's still generic even from MS.
Should add, it is optional to mute when using headphones, not a necessity

Should supplement use with Window's own VOLUME control on the task bar, for example, there maybe, when properly installed, two audio task bar icons, one with the proper driver, adding more features and full support
We need to know more about the specific mobo and what support came with it.

Can I assume that your sound card is seen correctly by Windows? You have a speaker icon in the system tray and if you tried to play a video or audio file it'll play just fine, minus the part that you can't hear it.
Do you have speakers connected as well and if so do those work?

Still, sadly lacking in information on the hardware, give up a bit more to go on, I assume the problem still exists, front and rear outputs?

I really wish you just give more details as much as possible so I don't have to ask so many questions.
OK so let's do a run down here.....
The OS sees the sound card correctly and has no problems playing audio. But when you plug in your headphones into the green speaker port in the back there is no sound at all. And I hopefully can safely assume the main volume within Windows (the little speaker icon in the system tray) is all the way up.
How many audio ports do you have in the back?
What is the speaker configuration set to? Control Panel->Sound->Playback->Speakers->Configure
What sound card do you have? Control Panel->System->Device Manager->Sound...etc...->??
I'm using "sound card" as a universal term to mean the audio device be it an on-board or PCI/E physical card.
Now then if he does have a physic card as well as on-board audio and his system is set to use, let's say, the physical card but he's plugging into the on-board then yes that's a problem. And hopefully with my last inquiring we'll find out what "sound card" he has and hopefully there will only be 1 listed....not including the HDMI port(s) on video cards.

It would make a difference if you're using the computer's normal audio jacks, if there's a card, it can have ports to front panel assignments in a case, but the motherboard has it's own output jacks, so everything is basically an enclosed architecture
