My Gateway laptop internal speakers were working fine before I plugged in my headphones. after I unplugged them the speakers would not work. I restarted my laptop 3 times, and I also made sure that the volume was not muted. I also tried a system restore. Is there anything else I can do?

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.
EXTERNAL SPEAKERS: If your are plugging speakers into your headphone jack and they dont play, but you plug headphones into the same port and they work fine.. then it is the external speakers.
INTERNAL SPEAKERS: But if you are using the speakers in the laptop, then your speakers are probably bad. Try some software settings, but probly just bad speakers. Could also be that the speaker cord inside the laptop came unplugged from the motherboard. In which case you would have to take the laptop apart and plug it back into the motherboard.
1. Please plug in a set of speakers or headphones known to be in working order. a. If the known-to-be-in-working order speakers or headphones work, your existing speakers are faulty. b. if the known-to-be-in-working order speakers or headphones do not work, your existing speakers are fine, and your sound card is faulty.
Nothing is wrong. Most computers automatically turn off the internal seakers after the external seakers are connected. Go to cntrol pannel and see what you can do under audio options or some such equivelent. Check back with more problems,
hope this helped/helps.
