Other than 'no sound on headphone', does sound work without headphones (like over the speakers) ????

Plugging headphones in and out, can over time cause the female socket to break inside. Or cause a weak contact with the male plug.

Plugging in headphones, unmakes contact of power to the speakers, and routes power to the headphones.
Like I said, you likely have a female socket problem.
Those Laptop sound sockets seem rather cheap to me.

OR
Try System Restore to a date when all was good.
Start >All Programs >Accessories >System Tools

Using System Restore too many times can cause
more harm than good. After doing a restore
that does not fix a problem, then UNDO the
Restoration, and try another restore point, or
just do the UNDO.

Other than that, you have a hardware problem like a socket.

Another thought ----
My Compaq Laptop (2103US) has a tiny button, at the side of the Laptop, that when pushed would stop sound to the speakers.

"Plugging headphones in and out, can over time cause the female socket to break inside."

I agree with Chuck2. The problem is most likely the headphone jack has a problem, and is not letting the audio through to the speakers..
