Miscellaneous - clutching at straws:
1) Can you bring up the Realtek Audio Manager and see what level is set there.
2) Do your speakers also have a headphone socket. If so is the result the same as directly connecting headphones.
3) What type of headphones are you using (eg. impedance?)

I didn't get back because I'm stumped.
Maybe check the specs on the notebook and make sure it isn't just a "line out" connection intended to be connected to amplified speakers.
I would have thought a notebook should be able to drive a pair of headphones.

Before you reinstall the whole OS try running a lightweight live linux CD like Puppy linux. If you have the same sound problem then it's probably hardware related.

Now we are two that are stumped. I also think it is most likely something in the port or a wire is dangling.

Sound out of Speakers, not headphones
On my brand new Asus laptop, I have not been able to figure out how to get sound out of my headphones when I plug them in.
