I have to restart my PC and then it works, ive had this issue from day one.
Anyone know what may be causing this?
Hi and welcome
It could be a driver
, or a 3rd party app that is interfering.
for driver check device manager (type device manager in search) go to the sound tab. Is your driver listed? does it have a yellow triangle on it? Are there any other "unknown" devices with yellow on them?
for a conflict app you can use msconfig to selectively turn off things that auto start
