When i connect my headset, the sound come from both headset and speakers and my mic is not working

When you insert the headphone jack into the "audio-output" jack,
which should be GREEN coloured, it should mechanically disable the built-in speakers. If that does not happen, you're connecting it to the wrong socket.

Be sure to insert the microphone's jack into the PINK socket, which is the "microphone-input" socket.

My audio out put is damaged, any way to re-route

Audio jack on any mother board runs on Mic and Headphone outlets.

The design of the board and the chipset wouldnt allow the headphone to be used in the microphone jack. Instead you have the option of using usb headset which has a driver pack to be installed and it goes fine. I am not sure if you have the product available at all stores. Good Luck

Left headphone speaker and left speaker both are not working.

Probably, unless there is another setting that you have missed. Have you loaded the correct drivers for the sound card?

Cant get sound through my headphones when i plug it in my computer

You need to check the headphone jack on the case before you try to use it again. It may have a wiring problem, Shutting down the computer is a serious problem and could do a lot of damaged to windows program and you computer.The way to reset the case headphone jack is to go int the control panel and search for the sound control device. go to the advanced options and put in the type of device you want the sound to come from. There is also the possibility that the headphone jack was damaged when you had your problem and will no longer function correctly. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Driver problem in compaq presario c700 laptop

Try connecting the headphone properly.
Check if its properly inserted.
Go for windows update............... and then check if the problem is gone.
If all the above doesnot works I think there is a connection between the metals inside your headphone portal, ans as soon as you insert the jack it gets connected and you can hear sounds from both the sources.
Thank You.
