Shifting sound devices



Hi all. To put it simply, my sound devices keep shifting from one to the other. One second its the speakers, the other the headphones, then the speakers again. Most of the time it sticks to one or the other until I start a game or something, then after a while it starts shifting again.

I opened Sound in the control panel to see what exactly's going on. When the sound device shifts from the speakers the speakers read as "not plugged in", then when they shift back from the headphones, they're "plugged in" again.

I just re-installed my Windows, and I did not have this problem before. It seems to be linked with the sound card in some way since only the sound devices that are plugged into it experience this. Please help :(
