    Don't know what a jackson amp looks like, but the lead is the right one for mot people. 3.5mm stereo from the PC to 2x phono L+R jacks.

        Start out simple in your testing...hook up headphones or whatever to the PC audio out...does it work?

        Plug your cord into a cd player or something and test the cord/amp setup.

        If you tested your computers sound output, and your amps audio input...then your homemade cord is the problem.
