  1. When I unplug and then replug my headphones, Windows doesn't detect them


    Every time my headphones disconnect and I try to replug them, Windows doesn't detect it and I have to reboot my computer, and it's really annoying.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    :)

    Extremely bizarre issue where headphones don't work after being unplugged and plugged back in

    I was going through your suggestions, until I got to this part. When I got to step 16 on that list (create a new admin user account and see if the problem persists in that account), I tried that suggestion and created a test account. At first, when I plugged
    in my headphones they weren't working (same as my original problem). But then when I unplugged them a Windows notification message popped up in the bottom right, saying something along the lines of "an audio device was disconnected". I plugged my headphones
    back in and got the same kind of windows popup asking what type of device I just plugged in, and I selected the headphone option. After that, the headphones worked fine even when unplugged and plugged back in. Unfortunately, they are only working fine in that
    alternate user account, and not in my normal one.

    So I guess that means that the problem lies somewhere in my account settings, but how on earth do I fix it?
     
  3. Wireless USB Adapter has to be unplugged and replugged

    Every now and then my wireless USB adapter has to be unplugged and replugged because for some reason its performance just gets worse and worse with time. I'll plug it in and get full internet speed 18Mbps down with full bars and then slowly it just drops to 48, 32, 11... with like 2 bars.

    Once I unplug and replug, bam full speed again.

    Am I doomed to just doing this or is their a fix? Google provided little input.

    Muting when headphones are unplugged/different volumes?

    On my phone and iPod and Chromebook, the volume will be muted/at a different level when I unplug the headphones from the jack. The muting part doesn't appear to be an option or work at all in Windows 10. When I mute the audio, it mutes both the headphone
    and speaker levels (I mute audio when my headphones are out, plug them in, still muted). Is there a way to do this in my current situation?

    I'm on a Dell Inspiron 1500 with windows 10.
