Hi crysisdark and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

I think that this could be because you have HD audio on your motherboard, but are using an AC'97 front panel (as the vast majority of users are). See for an explanation. As regards the difference in behaviour between XP and Vista/Windows 7, this is entirely down to the driver.

I know that you probably don't want to hear this, but I suggest that you do check Disable front panel jack detection and possibly uncheck Enable auto popup dialog, when device has been plugged in. It should be pointed out that you will only get complete functionality with an HD front panel, and whilst these are available they are not common.
