make sure that you set the volumes very low at first...

how many outputs does the sound card have?
if your soundcard provides line out as well as speaker out, connect the headphone to lineout.

it is also possible that you have connected speakers into mic and vice versa....does the connectors have labels/logo to indicate which is speaker and mic?

soundcard pci 512 has 3 outputs;red for use offmicrofoon, green for speakers etc.black also for speakers etc.the connectors are labeled and also colored,so not much can go wrong there i guess.i did the following;i connected mu speakerset to soundcard in green( output  for speakers)with that i used a splitter,so that contains the green from speaker and the green one from the headset.the red one from headset i put in red(microfoon in put)

what if you connect directly, instead of connecting through splitter...

Could be feedback between the mike and speakers.  Try plugging in the splitter but not the mike.  if that works, look in your audio controls for a way to mute the mike.

as i told, make sure that the volume controls are not set high....for mic atleast
setting mic volume too high causes such noise to come...reason is the feedback as mentioned above....

so if i understand well,it isnt possible to receive sound from both the speakers and headset at the same time? the headset is now installed the  following: i seperated the 2 cabels,the one with the green plug i put in front of the speaker,the one with the red plug i put in my soundcard.the headset works fine,but from speakers i still here no thing.a friend of mine has it installed the same as i have,and  said he have sound from both,but couldnt not tell me how he did,after install it just worked.

If the problem is feedback, you cannot have the mike and speakers on at the same time (at least not very loud).   Any other combination of headphones, mike or speakers should be fine.  
Hopefully you've managed to solve your problem.  If you have, please close the question, if you haven't just tell us and we'll stay on it.

Have you tried running it with just the red jack (mike) unplugged?
