    When you insert headphones do you get sound from the headphones and speaker
    simultaneously? The internal speakers should cut out with headphones as the
    socket has a switch which disconnects the speakers when headphones inserted.
    Looks like there is a problem with the switch which is unusual.

    Unless the socket you are using is a microphone socket?

    yea, it must be a problem internally then, because its definately not
    the microphone jack...and yes, the sound comes out of both at the
    same time...one time the sound from the speakers cut out, but it was
    very strange, because the sound on the computer was muted, but it
    still came out of the headphones, and i could only adjust the sound
    through windows media player or whatever program i was using, because
    if i un-muted the main volume control, the sound came back out of the
    speakers...but i havent even been able to get that to happen
    again...im guessing then, that there is something wrong internally
