When I use the headphone for the computer to listen to some music or programs my I don't get sounds through the headphone but on the speaker. I checked with 3 other headphones to see if was the computer or the headphone. sure enough it was the pc because the all 3 headphone did the same thing, it didn't work.

most system has seperate audio ports for the speaker and the headphone but they are interchangeable. try plugging the speaker on the audio your using for the headphone. if your already using the same audio jack then try using another speaker, but since you mentioned that the headphone works then its possible you might need to replace your speaker
To switch between speakers and headphones on Firefox, make sure your headphones are plugged in first, Right click on volume on the bottom right corner of your screen, Then select Volume Mixer, then double click on System sounds, Click on the playback tab, then you could switch between speakers or headphones, just select one and click "set default" and OK only sounds in firefox will play in the headphones, and windows media player will play on the speakers
You could leave your windows media player to play on the speakers while you listen to firefox videos in the headphones
If you want the media music player to play in your headphones also; You have to change it in the media player program, go to options on the media player, then look for playback devices, there should be 2 options speakers and headphones, just pick one
I usually set the firefox audio to my headphones, and a media player to the speakers
It sounds like you have a faulty connection between the headphones and the music device. Try fiddling with the port of your computer, iPod, or whatever else you use to listen to music. If the headphones do this on more than one device, it's a problem with them. Fiddle with the cord while you listen and see if you can target the bad area of the cord. If you can manage to listen to the headphones successfully while tweaking the cord, you might be able to use them still, if not they're probably blown or dead. Hope this helps =]
The reason is most likely that your speakers are the default device for listening to sound. Go to the control panel > Sounds > Look at the devices listed, Highlight the headphones icon and select default, hit apply and ok.

Make sure in the volume mixer that it is using the right sound device. You most likely have it set to the wrong device output. When you plugged in the headphones in kinda automatically switches, but to use the speakers again you have to do it manually. Just hook up a cheap av receiver to your computer and use this headphone input instead. a 100$ 5.1 av receiver beats any pc speaker system.
