two speaker outputs

is it possible to setup a laptop to use it's internal speakers and the headphone jack at the same time. I have this little stereo in my room that has an aux input (red and white av cables) and I got a cable with a headphone jack that splits off into red/white to plug into it. When I had my desktop I took a splitter and plugged in the standard speakers to one end, the stereo cord to the other, then the male end into the audio input on the desktop. My laptop just has the internal speakers and a headphone jack, I want to plug the stereo cable into the headphone AND use the internal speakers. Is this possible?

I took my laptop apart one night cause I was bored but splicing is a little much for me, any non-invasive ways of doing this, an option somewhere?

don't think so. it's not a software or driver issue. I think the hardware is designed that way. it's either/or.

+1... it's designed so when you plug in headphones for privacy it turns off the speakers. This is done with wiring not programming.
