This problem might be hardware or software issue. I am providing below the steps to eliminate any software related issue, viz. Drivers Issue. Please uninstall the Audio Drivers from the Device Manager and restart the computer to load generic Windows 8 Drivers. To uninstall the Audio Driver from Device Manager:

1. From the Start screen press the "Windows Key" + X. If you have a mouse, right click the bottom left side of the screen.
2. Select "Device Manager" from the menu that appears.
3. Expand "Sound, video and game controllers".
4. Right Click the device listed here.
5. Click "Uninstall".
6. Restart the computer and check if the audio jack is working.

Do reply with results.
