     Theoretically, sysctl knobs do no help to your problem.

     I guess that the outlets on the front cover of your computer case
are incorrectly connected with your motherboard, which maybe affects
the outlets on the back cover at the same time.

     You may try disconnecting front panel outlets from your motherboard
and restoring jumper switches of the front panel audio connector on your
motherboard. Then, try back panel outlets.
