Re: turning off the speakers
When you plug into the headphone jack, it should automatically override the speakers. This will be either a driver issue or a device faliure (headphone jack) Start by updating the sound drivers from Dell's support site. Then update your media player. If these don't work then it's the jack.

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
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.
Have you tried a pair of headphones to see if they work?
Is the sound ouput muted? (a lot of laptops have a physical button to
check to see if the laptop is muted. Also, check the
volume control to see if everything is up where it should be, including
If I've got this all straight, the only thing that it can be is an
issue with the plug on the speakers and the jack on the laptop.
Obviously the computer is putting out sound to the headphone jack as
evidenced by your ability to listen through headphones. The speakers
work on another computer. So, it has to be something specific about
the Speakers on this laptop. Plug/Jack problem is the only thing that
comes to mind.
Make sure you have the correct headphones for your computer stereo not mono the inner connector on the computer socket and the headset connector must align exactly if the speakrs still play while the headset is plugged in you have the wrong type of headphones connected try logitech brand Headphones designed for computer listening
do you not have plug specifically designed for a headset on your computer?
