I just got a new PC and I am a bit confused. I have a gaming headset and when I plug it into my PC, I can hear just fine. However, I realized that my sound was also coming through the speakers as well. My speakers are set for default, and when I set my headset to the communications default.. I am left with sound only coming through my speakers. When I change my settings to make the headset the default, it'll play through the speakers as it's told, but once the headset is unplugged there is no longer sound coming from the speakers.
When I don't have the headset plugged in, I want sound from my speakers. When I have my headset plugged in, I want my sound to go ONLY there.
What can I do? I just purchased a new PC and this wasn't a problem. The speakers aren't new, nor is the headset.. so they are def working correctly. The sound card is Realtek.. (thats all I can tell from that.. its nothing fancy) I also have Windows 7 64 bit. The mobo is Asrock Pro 3. My speakers and my headset are both analog. I do not have a USB headset. Oh, and the drivers are ALL up to date. The headset is Corsair HS1.
Thanks so much!
