That really is weird. Ok try to reinstall the software from your sound card, before you do that get the new drivers. Unplug all jacks beforehand. Then see what happens.

The same happens here, but I got used to it. I just leave both the speaker and the headphone connected and working. When I need to use the headphone, I just turn off the speaker.
