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 that the level of the headphone out put is open. Make sure it is on manual adjustment and no auto level. And test your headphone on a other device to clear that your headphone is not broken. If all these options are correct you headphone pre amp of the XP 50 may be damaged or broken.
If you are using Windows XP then the problem is related to the sound drivers. Actually this notebook is not officially designed to work on WindowsXP, however there are some unofficial drivers available for windows XP,you may try downloading the sound drivers from: http://sites.google.com/site/sriksang/software/drivers
I'd recommend to install all the drivers from this page. In case the drivers on this site do not work, let me know I shall provide you other links to the drivers.
Is there a switch to turn on the headphone port? Is there a control on the headphones to adjust the volume (on a volume level on the side of the laptop)? Also, when the headphones are plugged into the laptop, go into your sound settings and turn up the master volume (and wave volume if it is low.. If that works, make sure to turn it back down when disconnecting the headphones).
Also, do the headphones work in another device (stereo, etc..)?
yes thats the fact when you plug a headphone into any speakers the head phone will be the only one to function the speaker stops thta the circuit technically which will break the connection of power to speaker if you plug head phone
