Default Headphones plugged in, sound still comes out of speakers!

Hi, I use a Dell Inspiron E1505. I recently plugged in my headphones, and the sound played out of the speakers. I checked, and the sound was also coming out of the headphones. I looked it up, but nobody else seemed to have this problem on XP. Either that, or Microsoft took down some of their XP support pages. They WOULD do that. I also tried going into my system properties and changing it, but nothing happened. Does anyone know how to help?

Have you tried changing the default audio device in the playback devices settings?

Nevermind. I went to the settings, but there was only one choice available on each dropdown box. But I went to Advanced Audio Settings, and PC Spk Mute wasn't checked for some reason. Works fine now.
