I have some weird problems with my headset lately, when i listen to music one of the speakers (5.1, Front left/right ) simply just shuts off there is no sound coming from it and then like 5 sec later it pops up again and then 10 sec later it shuts off again and somethimes the sound/speaker doens't come back on but i have to reset my PC or something like that. At first i though it was mayby bad headset so i bought another one (same one) and it worked just fine but then 2 weeks later BAM! same problem. I asked a couple of friends of mine what could be the problem and they said its mayby my soundcard or something or my power or USB or something like that.
I later though well if its my soundcard i'm not gonna plug my headset in it anymore till i can buy another one so i plugged my headset to my onboard audio and... yep same shit happend :S. I have all my Realtek and Creative Soundblaster drivers
up to date and my PC is pretty clean no virus or anything like that. I must say when i listed to music i really turn up the volume like if my headset's MAX volume is 10 i set it like at 6-7 could it be that the volume is killing my headset? Anyway i hope that somebody can help me
sorry for my crappy english. My specs:
Headset: Speedlink Medusa 5.1 Progamer headset (jack cables)
Soundcard: Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Professional Series
