If it always works with headphone - without fail - then it is likely the fault is within the headphone socket. You'll appreciate that when you plug in headphone, the speakers in the laptop are cut off - which is a mechanical break in connection caused by the plug. Sadly, it sounds like it is staying disconnected.
Most likely its a nardware problem. If Device manager shows the audio driver is working and enabled and when you plug an headphone into the headphone/audio out and you only get sound from the right headphone then the audio amp chip is faulty. If the headphone sounds OK then the easiest solution is to connect a set of powered speakers to your laptop.
Does it happen with headphones in as well? If not, do you have a built-in-microphone? Sometimes the sound coming of the speakers can be picked up by the microphone, resulting in an echo sound. Make sure that the microphone is off (or test it by covering it up while playing some music), and quit out of any applications that are using it. If you hear it in the headphones as well, it could be a sound card problem, which means it would need replacing. If you don't hear it in the headphones, but hear it in the speakers and don't have a mic, it's either your speakers, or (more likely) your computer just doesn't get along with whatever software you're using to play movies/music.

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.
Since it is still playing audio, just not on the laptop's speakers, then likely your speakers have gone bad. They are replaceable but sometimes getting to them can be a pain as well as finding another set of speakers for it.
Believe it or not, not all speaker plugs, even if they are of the same size are NOT made the same.Some times the "male" PLUG pushes into the "female" socket in such a way that it makes NO connection or does not make the right connection causing the headphones not to work. TEST: play music that u can hear through the internal laptop speakers, and while the music is playing, plug in the headphones. The internal speakers SHOULD cut out, and under normal conditions the music should pass through the headphones. If the speakers cut out and the headphones don't work, your plug is damaged. If the speakers DON'T cut out after u plug in the headphones, your plug is open. Depending on the audio circuit, your audio amp. inside the laptop is going to get damaged. It depends on the WAY the audio circuit was made.
