Okay so it looks like the drivers are up to date, and its not the speakers. I had the speakers plugged in to my laptop and they worked fine. Interestingly, even when the speakers were completely unplugged from my desktop, it kept cycling back and forth between the "you've plugged in a device.... you've unplugged a device, blah blah". Isn't it weird that it'd do that when nothing is plugged in?? I don't understand why it would have worked totally fine for a couple days then out of no where start doing this. Ideas??
