Hi all, I'm having a rather odd soundcard problem on my Vista box. Whilst listening to music or a movie or playing a game or whatever, my sound has been stopping and I havn't had a clue why, I earlier uninstalled the driver and software and re-installed it all, so everything reverted to default settings. Now when my sound stops it says a new device has been attached in my front jack ports where the headphones go, it even displays this port as active but I can be assured that the port is empty.
This phantom headphone has only started appearing since I updated Vista, I'm currently scanning my PC for viruses (first scan so I'm dreading it), but I just want to know if anyone else has had the same problems? I'm using a 5.1 setup and it also keeps saying my rear speakers connect and disconnect.
I've disabled my front panel as a temp fix but I'm still losing rear sound during a movie occasionally, but I'm obviously looking for a more perminant fix that means I'll be able to use the card as designed. If nothing comes up I'll probably revert back to before the Vista updates but if you can suggest anything I'll give it a shot.
