Use an audio cable from speaker out to aux in and Y cable to external speakers or headset. Works every time.

What you need to do first is make sure your sound card is enables as a recording device. Start>Control Panel>Sound Speech and audio devices>Recording Devices. Make sure none of them are hidden and enable the sound card.
