Speaker's volume is low

I have a pretty crazy problem. I have these fairly old speakers that when I plug them in they are low. But when I plug the speakers into my Mp3 player they can get extremely loud. I have everything set to the max, but the sound its giving is low. If I play around with my Sound control from double clicking the speaker in the bottom right by my clock, once it goes past half the sound doesn't change at all. Crazy thing is, is that when I try headphones they work well, actually are louder than these speakers, and they will go past half volume. I have everything in my sound controls set correctly, the hardware is built in Ac '97, and I have my correct drivers installed. I'm plugging them into the correct port, everything seems to be right but they just wont go past half volume. I can jack it to the max but when I do it doesn't matter, they just stay at half way volume levels.

Any ideas what my issue might be? Because I'm totally stumped.

Edit heres my drivers and stuff:

Hi Lorddias

With the headphones working properly, I would suggest the speakers are on the way out, especially as you have mentioned they are old. Do you have another set of speakers (not headphones) you can get your hands on? You may be able to borrow from friends/family if you don't have anything lying around nearby. Try with these other speakers and see what happens.

Cheers :)
