So today I unplugged my earbuds and plugged my head set in to my front audio jack (I already had the microphone for the headset plugged in) and as I did so I showed that I didn't have a microphone plugged in and I couldn't hear anything so I unplugged my headset from the audio jack and plugged my earbuds back in to see if I could get sound from them and I still couldn't so I uninstall and reinstall my onboard sound car drivers and turn my computer off and back on and it's still not working but when I put my audio plug half way in the jack I can hear and when I plug it in completely I have to pull down on the plug it self for it to work properly and if I don't I can't hear and it shows that I don't have a microphone plugged in either.

Sounds like the 3.5mm jack is in need of replacing:

Basically the connectors are not making contact inside the jack without applying sideways tension.

Some case manufacturers can send a new one for replacement, or use a standard one that can be bought online:

Edit: If replacing it isn't an option, but before replacing the whole case, you can also look at 3.5" or 5.25" bay kits for front audio.....or just use the back outputs and run an extension, of course.

I would call TK and ask them with the specific case make and model number, which to use (or if they can send/sell the spare part).

You can also take the case apart and separate the solders. Once you have it off/out of the case it should be pretty easy to identify. then just solder the new one in.
