I built my computer about 3 weeks ago using the following list of parts:
CPU: AMD A8 - 7600 3.1 GHz Quad Core
Mother Board: Gigabyte GA-F2A88XD3HP
Memory: Mushkin Essentials 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600
Storage: Sandisk SSD Plus 240GB 2.5" SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200 RPM Internal Hard Drive
Case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower
Power Supply: EVGA BQ 500W 80+ Bronze Semi Modular
Optical Drive: ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer
Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64 bit
The Problem I am having is:
The Realtek HD Audio Manager on my Mother Board keeps giving me the following 2 messages:
1) "You just plugged a device into the audio jack."
2) "You just unplugged a device from the audio jack."
The thing is I do not plug anything into or from the audio jack when I get those messages! I get those messages from near constantly to several times (8 to 10) in a hour to about once or twice in about a couple of hours!
What have I done?
1) I have checked to make sure that my external speakers' cable is securely plugged into the audio jack. It was and is.
2) I checked to make sure that the cable management was okay. The rear case fan's cable was touching the rear audio port housing, so I adjusted the cabling so it was no longer touching the rear audio ports housing. I also made a couple other minor cable adjustments.
3) I made sure the "Front Audio" cable was properly and securely inserted into the port on the mother board. I even pulled it out and re-inserted it just to make sure!!
4) Double/Triple checked and made sure the other cables where properly and securely inserted in their proper spots!
5) I have tried several times to contact Gigabyte the manufacturer of my Mother Board, But I keep getting: "System is busy, Pleas try again later." WTF?!! Poor Customer/Technical Service when the customer cannot reach them!!
My questions are:
1) Could I have missed something when installing BIOS updates before installing my Operating System?
2) Could some settings have gotten fouled up when I was initially setting up my computer?
3) Could it be detecting my nephew's game system? my nephew, his wife and their children's cellphones and mobile devices?
4) Could it be a "bug" in the Realtek HD Audio Manager driver(s)?
5) or Could there be something else causing it?
I know others have experienced this problem also! So I am not the only one.
Can anyone provide any answers and help fix it?
