Hey there, hoping I get get some help with this! So I'd just formatted my computer to free up space and realized I have this problem. I have a link to a youtube video showing what happens as it's hard to explain.

 

 

My playback devices keep constantly changing the second I log into Windows. This is after a fresh format of Windows 7. I tried installing my motherboard's on board sound drivers afterwards assuming that'd fix the issue, and it didn't do anything. I then proceeded to reformat again as I thought the windows 7 installation may have corrupted, still not fixed. Next I tried to install a seperate sound card in my PC and that didn't fix the issue. Then I tried taking out my gtx 480 and putting in my radeon 6950 as it has an HDMI port to see if it would pick up sound, no luck. The playback devices keep swapping like that regardless of what I do. I also tried my friend's version of Windows 7 incase my disk was scratched.

 

Not sure what to do at this point!

Try turning the surround sound on your Razor synapse off then make your speakers your default for sounds and for your commincations,  or try making any one the default for both.  i noticed you have two green checks you only need one.  you are trying to make two defaults at present.  this worked for me but who knows, I'm not an expert by any definition of the word.

Hey thanks for the response, disabling all sound devices or having one default doesn't change them all from repeatedly connecting / disconnecting
