Yes thats the fact when you plug a headphone into any speakers the head phone will be the only one to function the speaker stops thta the circuit technically which will break the connection of power to speaker if you plug head phone

As you stated in your question there are 3 3.5mm headphone jacks connected to the speakers. Green is for headphones, red is for microphone, and black is probably just a line in connector.
plug the green connector from the speakers into your headphone port on your laptop and it should work.
because the speakers are self powered and have a few adjustment knobs on them, you will have to tinker with the volume coming from the laptop and from the speakers, so you don't have distorted, scratchy sound from the speakers when playing music at loud levels.
my suggestions is turn the laptop volume down to a quater of the volume and then turn the speakers up, let the speakers do the hard work and not the laptop..
Most likely its a nardware problem. If Device manager shows the audio driver is working and enabled and when you plug an headphone into the headphone/audio out and you only get sound from the right headphone then the audio amp chip is faulty. If the headphone sounds OK then the easiest solution is to connect a set of powered speakers to your laptop.
take the headphones out play the music full volume then put the headphones in and lower the music all the way down then your volume will be normal and it will only play in through the head phones unless you take headphones out then it will play through speakers
desktops now a days have more than one plug for the speakers. try playing some music and play which hole works.
if there is a 5.1 or surround on the desktop then most likely the light green jack isnt stereo out but rather unamplified signal. thus when you plug head phones into it the internal amp drives the headphones, but wants the computer to drive the speakers.
try plugging it into the black one... or play pick a hole till it works.
An MP3 player is a stereo device, meaning that it works on two channels - left and right. Therefore a 5.1 speaker system will only play on 2 speakers.
However, if you want to use rear speakers as well, just for the fun of it (you won't get any surround effects, both left speakers will play the left channel, and both right speakers the right channel) you can purchase a "headphone Y-adaptor", that normally allows two people to use two pairs of headphones on the same portable music device. It has one headphone plug and two headphone sockets in parallel. Plug it into the player, and to the sockets plug the front and rear speaker cables :)
go to the control pannel, then go to sounds and audio devices, then click the audio tab across the top. under sound playback, choose your speakers as the default device. solution only works like this for windows xp. good luck
unplug your headphones, and plug the speaker cord into that jack. its possible that the speakers you are using require power either by a cord or batteries and without them, it wont play sound. also, possible, your speakers are bad.
Believe it or not, not all speaker plugs, even if they are of the same size are NOT made the same.Some times the "male" PLUG pushes into the "female" socket in such a way that it makes NO connection or does not make the right connection causing the headphones not to work. TEST: play music that u can hear through the internal laptop speakers, and while the music is playing, plug in the headphones. The internal speakers SHOULD cut out, and under normal conditions the music should pass through the headphones. If the speakers cut out and the headphones don't work, your plug is damaged. If the speakers DON'T cut out after u plug in the headphones, your plug is open. Depending on the audio circuit, your audio amp. inside the laptop is going to get damaged. It depends on the WAY the audio circuit was made.
