Windows 7: Sound stops when changing audio input problem

Sound stops when changing audio input problem


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?

I had a similar problem on my laptop and rolling back the sound drivers fixed the issue. What happens if you allow applications to take control of the hardware?
