You are connecting external speaker from your TVs headphone socket I thinks. It is quite normal that the internal speker will cut off when external a headphone is connected to the headphone socket. OK.
When doing this, you need to adjust your settings in the control panel for the audio. Usually it's defaulted to block sound when you plug in headphones. Make sure you are plugging them into the correct audio output, but it shouldn't play sound from both the headphones as well as the built in speakers.
When you plug the headphones in what happens is that inside of the jack the internal speakers are disconnected and the sound goes to the headphones. If both are playing either the jack is not inserted far enough or female plug is loose or defective. Replace or repair the female plug.
Since the majority of laptops do not have multiple sound outputs you will need to buy a couple of headphone splitters.
Plug the first Y splitter into the laptop headphone port and plug one of the input cables going to the speakers in one arm of the Y. Next, plug another Y splitter in the remaining arm of the first Y. This will provide you with the other two inputs that you need. Plug the remaining speaker cables into the other Y arms.
From there it is simply controlling the speakers using the laptop volume and/or the speakers volume. You will not have fader control on a 3.1 or 5.1 speaker system but it will give you what you are looking for.
I have this same configuration at my office using an IBM laptop and a 5.1 surround sound system.
