Why won’t my desktop output sound through my headphones anymore?

In the past, if I plugged in headphones into the audio jack in my Gateway computer, it would automatically transfer all sounds to the headset. Currently, they are plugged in and working, and yet all sounds are directed through the internal speakers. They are set to default audio device. Any particular reason for this not switching any longer, and how to fix it?

I’ve looked around on here and everything is related to Windows 7 & 8. I’m running Vista.

    try to update the drivers, uninstall and reinstall the audio drivers
    Check the option RealTek HD Audio Manager, Advanced Settings....Mute the read output device, when a front headphone plugged in?
