Do you plug the headphones into the same socket? If so, it is likely a problem with the speakers. IT could be something simple like they are not powered properly.

If you connect the headphones to a different socket, then check in control panel, sounds and multimedia for anything that is muted.

I only have one headphone port

Is the headphone port the same place that you are connecting the speakers into.

What sort of speaker system is is? Stereo, 2.1, 5.1 etc?

I just did a test to see if it was the sound drivers I played some music and tried recording it with stereo mix and it worked with no music coming out of the speakers but it recorded so it seems to be some thing wrong with my speakers
