Front headphone output distorted

ProDesk 490 G3 MT
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

There is a hissing, fuzzy, distorted, static noise when I connect any headphones to the front headphone jack even before any audio is playing and as soon as the volume is above 0. The problem goes right away as soon as I connect the headphones to the back auxilary output instead and the sound is crisp and clean. I have had the issue with older HP desktop pc's too, but had hoped it was a thing of the past. Is there any way I can make this noise go away without risk of losing my warranty?

 

I need to use the front output since my headphones will not reach the back when I am wearing them in my chair.

 

I apologize for submitting this under 'notebook audio'. Should obviously have been 'desktop audio'.

 

Please reply to this thread instead:
