I have a very annoying problem that I haven't been able to solve for a year. Everytime I turn on my computer or restart, I have to unplug the microphone and headphone jacks and plug it again. I want to add that I don't have this problem with my Logitech sound system that is always plugged to my pc. I also have a similar problem regarding my Razer Mamba mouse. Everytime I turn on or restart the computer, my pc does not recognize cursor movement commands from my mouse but what is interesting is, pc receives everything else. I mean I can right click or left click and they do work. Weird really. So if anyone has a similar problem or solution to this, I would really appreciate your help. Thanks for your time.
Now mic works. I think there was priority problem with the sound system's mic entrance so i unplugged it and voila. For headphones i think the problem is unsolvable because of this priority thing, i guess. It always first gives the signal to stereo. Another question if I may, as you probably guessed, I had to remove and re-plug my jacks many times. Do you think that this might have caused a corrosion in the mick entrances because sometimes my mic does not give proper signal to system. Same thing goes for the headphones. Any ideas?
That sounds like a loose connection or loose cable somewhere in them that MOSTLY keeps in contact, but if the situation is right it won't hit the contacts. I had a mic that was the same way, it eventualy had an 'up' and a 'down' even though it was round, just because I had to have the cable pulling down a specific way to keep it working.
But you can try cleaning the leads on the mic and headphones to see if that helps any.
