I am assuming that the "front" port you mentioned is on the case. I would make sure that the cable from the soundcard to the front of the case is connected properly. The odds of two soundcards having the same issue is remote. Good Luck

The sound cards have a front speaker jack and a rear speaker jack and on both sound cards I can't get the front speakers to work but the rear speakers do work that's my problem I don't think it's the cards but I'm not sure what it is.

In Sound Properties, do you have 4 channel or surround sound mode enabled?

Since most sound card ports are line-level outputs and impedance protected, it would be very difficult to actually damage the port itself.

What sound card?
Which version of Windows?
What speakers?
Any other pertinent hardware details that you can share with us?

Have you downloaded the latest drivers?

Also, many sound cards have multiple functions for some jacks that are software selected.
