Searched all the web for answers but didn't find one.

I solved problem.

While speakers plugged in the back try to plugin headset into front BUT NOT THE WHOLE WAY. Just try to push litlle by little and you'll see when the speakers start working.

If this is on a laptop....

The headphones jack on laptops and netbooks has a mechanical switch inside of it. It's supposed to disable the sound from going to the speakers built into the laptop whenever you plug a plug (on a cord) into the headphones jack.
If you have plugged into the headphones jack a lot, it's common for that mechanical switch to malfunction. You could try plugging a plug into the headphones jack, wiggling it, then pulling it out, that may get one or both speakers working, but the only real solution is to replace the headphones jack - that's an item frequently replaced by laptop repair places.
