My Yamaha HTR 5990 started getting hot and kept cutting off
Depending what happened is the key to solving this, chances are the audio outputs got very hot causing a short which overheated the capacitor, I would inspect and test parts near by to be sure no other part has been compromized. Check all speaker wires for shorts, "a common problem" and take your time when servicing, if unsure! have a professional assess.

I just got a Yamaha HTR6063 receiver and when I
The switch between the speakers and the headphones is controlled by a small mechanical switch from the headphones socket. To have them both active all you need to do is to open the receiver and rewire the socket, bypassing the switch - an easy 15 minute job if you know what you're doing. But you need some experience in electronics to do it so it will be better for you to take it to your local repair shop - they shouldn't be asking you more than $75 for that.

Xp audio problem
Try really uninstalling the audio device first, then reboot and install. Sometimes a driver reinstall or update fails if you don't uninstall it.
Are you certain that you have the right drivers?
