    Speaker Output Source Changes Randomly

    I am having an odd sound problem on my desktop PC. It is an older home brew which has worked fine for a long time, until now.

    My speakers are connected to my audio card and appear as a High Definition Audio Device. When nothing changes, they work fine.

    However, sometimes upon being awakened from sleep or at other random times the setting changes to Digital Audio and no sound will play through the speakers.

    I can remedy this problem by physically removing the one green speaker wire attached to the sound card and reinserting it. Restarting the PC also fixes it.

    I have tried disabling digital audio in sound settings but that does not resolve the problem.

    Any idea why this is happening and how to get a permanent fix? I am currently running Windows 10 Ver 1909.

    Make sure the the external speakers are set as default.

    Is this sound card part of the mobo or a separate add on card? Have you tried updating the sound driver for you mobo?
