Ive been getting this problem for a while now, even after system restoring.
Whenever im running something that requires audio, eg. itunes, ventrilo, youtube video etc a balloon will pop up from 'Realtek HD audio manager' saying a device (my headphones) has been unplugged, it will then say the device has been plugged in again.
It cuts the audio for about a second (very frustrating) and if i am in game, will make me lag also.
It seems to occur more frequently when i am in vent and in game, if more than 2-3 people talk at once it will happen definately.
I have tried reinstalling directX10, playing around inside the Realtek HD audio manager.. but to no prevail.
Where is the problem? What can i do to resolve this?
Thanks, anyone who bothers to read this
