If you get sound from both sides of the headphones when you plug it into the same jack the speakers normally plug into all you need to do is replace the speakers. If you mean you plug the headphones into the cd drive that's nothing special. You could have a bad sound card, bad connection in the jack, or bad speakers.

My gateway Ml3706 laptop shuts off after 5-10 min of using. they keyboard gets hot and the fan does not click in. i cleaned the computer of dust but im not sure if i need to pull the fan out and clean it...


Random reboots are usually an overheating problem. First step is to look into the vents and see if they are clear of dust, fuzz, animal hair etc.
If they are clear you will need to access the fan/heatsink. The heatsink can accumulate dust depending on the design. If the fan sounds "abnormally loud" it could have bad bearings from dust and dirt and may need to be replaced.
Most laptops come with some way to monitor the temp, usually in the bios. Occasionally they come with a utility. You can use that to check the heat levels.

My Gateway laptop says my sound device is working properly, but the sound only works if headphones or speakers are plugged into the jack. how do i fix this?


It sound like your headphone jack is the default sound device. Go to control panel > sounds > look at the devices listed. Click on the speakers that have a device connected to them. You may have two selections for speakers, but one may be tied to a sound device and the other to headphones. Highlight the sound device and click on make this device the default sound device and hit apply.

Sound is warped


Likely what happened is, in your efforts to get the piece out of there, you loosened a solder point on the headphone jack, and it will need to be resoldered. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, you can send it to a technician who can.
