Sound card problems? driver installed but no sound? SOLVED kinda

i have a VIA AC'97 Enhanced audio on-board card but i have no sound coming through it. Windows 7 has found the driver but i still get no sound out of the rear jack but i do get some out of the front but you really have to wiggle the plug and even then it only works for a few secs. so is that a hard-ware issue or a driver issue?? any help is appreciated! if it is driver can some one lead me to the place where i can download one that might work.

ok i did some testing with an ubuntu live cd and the sound problem was the same. so it is a hardware issue that has broken on my computer.
