When you say working perfectly, I don't quite understand. Having the audio working from both sounds like it is working perfectly. You can control the volume of either the headphones or speakers separately from the volume control panel.

Are your headphones plugged into the right plug? Or are they damaged in any way (plug might be bent, a wire might be loose at the plug, etc). Also, what headphones and sound card do you have?
