I want to use external speakers and USB headphones in harmony

My PC audio used to be real simple. I would insert the USB cable to my Plantronics GameCom Pro 1 headset and sound would go through the headset. When I removed the USB connector, the external speakers would play sound. For some reason now, I have to go into Sounds and Audio Device Properties and specifically choose the Default Playback device. I would like to get back to the way my PC used to work. My audio is C-Media AC97 onboard my motherboard. What do I need to do to get back to the way the PC used to work? sound card drivers required

I am trying to hear my gameplay through my plantronics gamecom p90 headset i got the headset to work but i cant hear my gameplay through it

If your headset is the P90, turn the headset on. The light on the headset should start flashing red/blue. If it doesn't, start with the headset turned on, press and hold the call control button on the headset until the light on the headset starts flashing red/blue, red/blue. Follow the on screen instructions and let the PS3 scan for the headset. It will appear as "P90Plantronics" in the list of devices. If prompted for a passkey, enter 0000 (4 zeroes). Now go back to the Accessory Settings menu and then select Audio Device Settings. Select "P90Plantronics" as the audio input and the audio output device. You should be all set. If not, you can contact the Technical Assistance Group at 800-544-4660 x5538.

Go into the computer's "control panel" and "audio devices", just to make sure that the Plantronics GameCom 377 is listed as the default device for both the microphone and listening. You sometimes have to designate the headset within the individual software programs as well.

Sounds like there might be a broken wire (shorting out by touching something else) or something loose in the mic area. This could still be under warranty with Plantronic's. If it is you should be able to have it replaced.

Most headphones are sealed by clips located underneath the foam (on the ear things). Stick a paperclip or xacto knife into the hole to unlatch the clips and then pry it outward. However, check the cable for any obvious breaks before disassembling your headphones.
