My laptop speakers will only work when something is plugged in one of the aux inputs. When i put headphones in, half the sound plays out the headphones and the other half through the speakers, so they do work im just confused
Can please specify what computer and model are you using?
This issue is commonly happening because there are different Audio Outputs used by the computer. You'd check your sound and audio preferences in order to see which one is configured, and try to configure an Automatic Detection.
Please provide more details and I'll try to help you.
