When I plug in my MS LifeChat LX-3000 headphones into my usb drive into Dell Inspiron, I have to manually change the sound output to the headset. The sound will sometimes automatically transfer from the speakers to the headset, and sometimes it will not. If I leave the headphones plugged in and even have changed the output the headset, when I wake the computer from a suspend session, I do not have volume control. Sound will still be coming from the headset, but when I change volume from my keyboard the volume remains the same. When I change the output to the speakers again, I have full control.
Is there a fix for this? Is there a setting or a configuration file I can change? Is this a known bug?
