I've recently updated to 9.10 and have found that when I plug in my head phones to the headphone socket it no longer disables the speakers. I'm running it on a quite old HP notebook. If anyone has had similar problems and can suggest a solution any help would be good. I'm still fairly new to ubuntu so I have little idea where to start looking to fix this problem.

I had the same issue.

Open terminal
Type Alsamixer
Highlight Headphone jack sense (use arrows)
use m key to toggle on/off

Check out this thread for more info if that doesn't solve your issues.
