Are you using more than one sound card?  If so then it sounds like your speakers are hooked up to the one and your headphones are hooked up to the other one.  If that's the case then you would need to hook your speakers and headphones up to the same sound card if possible.

If that's not the case, then can you provide more information about what kind of sound card you are using?

i always have to go to control panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound.  Then i choose headphones and click Apply but guess what, they still do not work unless I log off windows and log back on.
