Windows 7: USB port appears to be stuck when outputing streaming media

USB port appears to be stuck when outputing streaming media

I have what seems to be a strange problem with m USB ports.
I am running Windows 7 64bit on a HP Pavilion dx5.

I was running Winamp listening to a streaming media file through my external
speakers when i decided to plug in my usb headphones ti listen. However
now WHENEVER I play ANY streaming media file through Winamp or WMP
the audio gets directec to the USB headphones even though there are no
headphones plugged in or not. If any music is then played with the same
WMP or Winamp the audio gets directed to the speakers. Play the streamng
media and the audio gets redireced to the USB.

For some strange reason I cannot get any streaming media to be released
from the USB, and be direced BACK to the speakers as I desire. The USB
seems to be STUCK on when trying to play steaming media.

I simply wan to be able to plug an then unplug the headphones and the sysem
act as it should.

Hello eatc7402

Sometimes you need to give things a nudge, Play your streaming media click on start orb type sound, click on it when it appears, a new window will open, right click on an empty part of the window and select "Show Disabled Devices" and "Show Disabled Devices", then you can right click on your Speaker device and select "Set as Default Device" finally click on Apply.

Well I ALREADY tried that except that window says that the USB headphones
are the SPEAKERS!. The whole system is somehow confused over the
USB headphones. I've eve tried uninstalling the headphones but that does not
alter the problem. It's STUCK on the USB headphones even when they are
not plugged into the USB port!

Ok I have gone through section 2 of the
USB Driver - General Fix for Problems

and have sucesfully deleted the INFCACHE.1 file. I then shut down the system
and rebooted. A new INFCACHE.1 was created exactly where he previous one was.

I then checked the SOUNDS settings dialog box, and reloaded the offending
streaming fle. The result... NO CHANGE.

The problem remains the same. All other sounds are directed to the existing external
speakers EXCEPT for the streaming medias audio which continues to be directed
to set OF NON-EXSTING headphones, I REMOVED the LOGITECH headphone
USB driver, and the streaming sounds are still being redirected towards the
headphones.

I'm wondering if the Windows system registry is maintaining some value
the is corrupting the system regarding streaming media.

Strange what happens when you deactivate the headphones in sounds?
The other thing that may work would be to reinstall the sound drivers.

The most likely problem is the USB device has set itself as the Default Playback Device in the Sound Panel. You will have to go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel and reset your "Speakers" (sound card) as the Default Playback device.

If this hasn't been too long ago, a System Restore back to a date prior to the problem MAY take care of it.

I tried a system restore. Sorry, it didnt help. I tried reloading my sound card
drivers. It did not help either.

I'm out of ideas, short of "reload your operating system".
