When I'm listening to something on my computer through headphones (3.5mm) it will occassionally cut out for about half a second and play through speakers instead. The one trend that I notice is that it seems to happen when other sound generating events happen on my computer. For example, Google Talk is open and when I get an IM (which would typically cause a 'ding' sound) the cutover will happen. It doesn't happen everytime I get a new IM, nor does it only happen when I get an IM. Also, for the record, I've attempted muted/unmuting other programs through their own settings aswell as through the windows volume control.
My idea is to try USB headphones and see what happens. Does anyone else have any ideas?
