SOURCE: laptop speakers stopped working
Hello fadesit, It sounds like the headphone socket is sticking/defective. When you insert the jack into the socket a contact is broken to disable the external speakers, when you remove the jack the connection is resumed. Due to the amount of work this will take and the possibility of causing other problems in the process I would check to see if the warranty is still in effect first. If not then the next thing to ask is do you have the tools, mechanical aptitude, patience and ability to risk damaging your laptop to do this yourself? If you want to go the do it yourself route let me know and I?ll post some disassembly instructions later tonight otherwise please don?t forget to rate the posting.

Looks like there is some problem with the stereo headphone connector. As its a hardware issue, I would recommend sending it to the service center.
You may also use external speakers temporarily.

Connecting headphones to the system will disabled the internal speakers until the headphone jack is disconnected, at which such time the internal speakers should function again.
If you disconnect the headphones and the internal speakers are not re-activated, then there may be damaged to the microswitch in the jack. (Try rebooting after the headphones are disconnected too)

It may not be the problem of sound card,
1) try uninstalling/reinstalling the sound drivers from device manager.
2) put the laptop to sleep(standby) mode and than wake up.
