I believe that in many cases once you've switched to headphones, in order to get back to your system's speakers, you have to either start the game again or worse, reboot your system.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

It could be caused by a full-screen application block by your firewall suite..For instance my Norton Suite blocks applications from changing parameters while in game mode or entering full screen applications..

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

If you have the P5K board, the U.S. boards use the Realtek codec.
If your board is using the same codec, you can download the Realtek software from here Realtek, if you haven't already.

The software gives a jack detection pop-up whenever it detects that your headphones have been plugged in. By pressing OK to the pop-up, you should have sound. The sound shouldn't be disabled because you're using a game, but it could happen.

Let us know!
