    New Keyboard, Microphone stopped working with Speakers[New Info]

    I recently purchased a Pok3r keyboard, and now my USB microphone(AT2005USB) and my speakers (Bose Companion 5) refuse to work together. However, when I have my old keyboard plugged in, they work together just fine.

    My microphone has a way to listen to yourself while you talk, so it also is registered on my computer as a speaker. When I have that speaker enabled, my microphone works fine. When I disable that as a speaker and set my Bose speakers to the default speakers, my microphone doesn't pick up any sound according to the computer. I'll put a little gif up of what happens.

    As you can see, when only my speakers are enabled, my microphone doesn't pick up any sound. This ONLY happens with my new keyboard plugged in.

    If I have just my keyboard and the microphone plugged in, even if I disable the Microphones "speakers" it still will pick up audio on the microphone. It's only when I plug in the speakers as well that it decides not to pick up any sound.

    Does anyone know what could be causing this? None of the devices have device specific drivers; they are all just installed by windows.

    EDIT: I figured out that my keyboard works fine with everything when I plug it into the front USB ports on my computer, but it doesn't work on any of the back ports. I don't know what I should be doing to solve this problem.

    Could this be a power issue? It always seems like one thing has to stop working for another thing to work. Maybe my new keyboard draws more power than my old one, and the usb ports in the back are almost all full. Maybe the power going to all the ports is just low, so not all of the devices can draw enough power.
