Windows 7: can't change default sound device

can't change default sound device

Hi, I'm on Windows 7. When I go to Sounds and try to make my headphones Default device and not just default communications device, nothing happens. The headphones are connected by jack so the driver continues to be IDT High Definition Audio CODEC. Now, I can hear most sounds on my headphones, but when I try to use a communication device (Mumble), I can't hear anything from that application. Driver is up to date. Problems started when I opened Teamspeak and the sound for the game I was playing at the same time (SWTOR), went to laptop speakers instead of staying with headphones. I tried fixing that by playing with device settings in Sound, reinstalling Mumble, and still not working. Tried doing troubleshooting, but it shows as everything works, even though when I do sound tests for my headphones, the test sounds don't work but the intensity bar moves. No sound is muted in the mixer.
