If you have the short cut of the sound control in the panel,try right click it.
And choose "open volume control",then confirm "switches" to see if "headphone detecion" is checked.
Take care:p.

If milkwood's suggestion doesn't help, enter the following in a terminal.

$ aplay -l
If it says you have an Intel HDA sound chipset, chances are you need to pass a *model* to the driver to make it behave.
