dv4t headphone audio stops working and comes out of speakers instead

I have had this issue several times, where all of a sudden the headphones audio stops and starts coming out of speakers. Even if i unplug the headphone and plug it back again, the audio still only comes out of the speakers.

 

I am assuming it is a software issue because if I go into the Sound control panel and "test" the communication device, I still hear the testing sound in my headphones. It is only for everything else, like youtube, games, music, that will come out of the speakers instead of the headphones.

No. It does not work. I reinstalled the audio driver and the problem still happens.

It randomly happens where while im listening with my headphones on, the music will stop playing on my headphones and come out of the speakers. The only solution right now is to restart the laptop.

My believe I have found a solution.

I uninstalled the  IDT sound device codecs and when i restarted the laptop it automatially installed the High Definition Sound Device. 

Works fine so far.
