I have a standard 3.5mm output jack on the back of my motherboard,
whenever I change the jack, e.g. take speakers out, plug headphones in, the sound stops, usually when i'm using itunes, or bbc iplayer. Sometimes this can crash microsoft messenger as well.
I have to restart the application for the sound to work again.
In the sound options i have the box unchecked for allow applications to take control of this hardware. Also installed latest motherboard driver
and problem still exists. Motherboard is Asus P5Q Deluxe.
Can anyone advise?
