Windows 7: Sound stops playing after changing volume

18 Apr 2015   #11

Windows 10 64 bit

If you have the headset USB plugged in and try to use the PC speakers you have to change the default audio playback device from the headset to the "Speakers". It won't automatically switch with the headset plugged in.

Remove the headset USB adapter and just have the PC audio, make sure the Speakers are set as the default playback device (and the Stereo Mix as the default recording device) and start from there. Does this work?
