I have the same issue, I am currently using windows 10. Since the update from windows 8 to 10 it has started to happen. I did not have any issues using windows 8 and was using an older version of my video card drivers (which when I updated to Windows 10 were "updated by windows") . I use my video card for sound due to the fact that my HDMI cable carries the sound to my television. I also use my headset which is a wireless logitech G930. I have no on board sound card since the pci one I was using died.
I think if I revert back to my old video card drivers it will fix the issue.
Another annoying thing with Windows 10 and the sound is that when i right click on the volume mixer to disable/enable to fix it I have to wait about 2 minutes for it to appear.
