Without knowing what the make and model of you computer is I can only guess as to what is happening.

Usually when a computer has a headphone plug and speakers you can have either one or the other. Usually when you plug in a set of headphones it will disable the other speakers. This is so that you can listen to the headphones without disturbing others.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Consider using a Y splitter.
In the beginning there was the command line.
