Recently without warning or any reason that I could think of something has changed with my headphones, or rather with windows. I used to plug them in along with the separate mic cable into the appropriate front panel jacks, and it would go back to the previous master volume setting, which was typically around 10-15. A master above 20 would nearly be deafening with headphones on. When I would unplug them, the master returned to 100, and sound would return out my speakers as normal. Now all of a sudden when I plug them in, my master volume goes down to something like the 50's or 60s, and I can barely hear it. it's almost like this new volume setting I get when I plug them in, 50-60 volume level was on a different scale. I have no idea what caused this, I haven't been able to fix it, but a restart always seems to fix it. Any ideas? I don't want to have to restart my computer every time I want to play games with my friends.
