The Headphone jacks on many PC's have extra contacts that tell the PC if a headset is plugged in. Could be that jack got damaged. If that jack is damaged it will think there is still a headset plugged in and there will not be any speaker sound.

The damaged headset jack is one possibility. Can't say what else could have happened. Is the "Speakers" (the PC sound card) shown as the default Playback device? in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel playback section?
