Got a new Cyber Acoustics (AC-840) USB headset...plugging it in
rerouted the sound to the headphones just fine, but now I can't get the
regular speakers (through a Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 card) to work at
all. The headset still works, but when I unplug it, I can't figure out
a way to get the speakers to work again. (XP SP2)
I changed the settings in Sound and Audio Devices to the SB card
(that's the only option when the headphones aren't plugged in)
I reinstalled the SB drivers.
I uninstalled the drivers, removed the card, installed it in a
different slot, and started over from scratch.
I did a hatchet job on the registry, removing anything that remotely
looked like it might be in the way (USB Audio, as well as any Creative
items when I removed the card to reinstall)
I even disabled USB in the BIOS when none of that worked.
Anyone have any other places to look? I'm about out of ideas...
