Problem w/ headphone jack in front of PC tower (hardware/software problem?)

I put my headphones in last night to listen to some music while working, and I realized that the right channel was out. Now, since the headphones were a cheap set of Sonys I just assumed they were the problem. I put in some earbuds to troubleshoot, and sure enough the right channel was down on those, too.

We've got a Dell running Win XP sp2. Could this be a software issue, or is is probably hardware?

Thanks in advance.

the cable connection from the jack to the motherboard/sound card may have fallen out.

check the internal connections to the jack and to the mobo.

Alright, thanks...I'll give that a try. I guess I should have mentioned that I do get sound out of the left channel and both external speakers.
