Windows 7: USB Headset louder with one USB port than the other

USB Headset louder with one USB port than the other

I use the front USB ports for my headset. there are 2 in the front. However there is a big noticeable difference in volume with the left compared to the right. The left one is a good volume and easy to work with, but the right USB port always has lower volume.

My guess is that it's a power problem, but I want to make sure before I do anything.

I would just use the left one, but for some reason, the port is sensitive and disconnects easily.

It would depend on how the hardware is connected, both at the motherboard to the front panel and how the front panel is configured. This is more a general hardware issue than an audio issue, even though its affecting the headset.

For my first month of having Windows 7 (Ultimate, 64-bit, 4x2gb ram, Intel Pentium 4 3.8GHz) my sleep mode worked fine. It would enter sleep mode, the fans would slow down to an almost muted level. After that month, every time I entered sleep mode my fans would get louder, not quieter, and...
