Hi, was wondering if I could get some help maybe? My Dell laptop (Windows 8) used to prompt me to select the type of audio device I was inserting into the audio jack (i.e. Skullcandy earbuds, over the ear headphones, gaming headphones) and then hit accept, but then one day within the last few months the pop-up box that appeared when I plugged something into the jack suddenly stopped appearing; I'm afraid I may have pressed the "do not show this box" button by accident one time but I really don't remember. I'm mostly just trying to re-enable the prompt, but I'm not really computer savvy and I can't find it in the audio options anywhere! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Control Panel  -->  Sounds --> Playback  [I have Windows 7, your 8 may word it differently]  might be what you're wanting.
