Audio from headphones stop working - audio source correlated?

HP Probook 430 G2
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

So I just bought this notebook second hand and it's working seemingly fine. However, when I plug in my headset the audio sometimes disapears, and this is a headset that works well with any other hardware. I followed some of the computer's troubleshooting as well as some on this site but it did not seem to detect any issues. 


What I find after a bit of trying is that when different audio sources are "added" it may disappear, for example, sometimes when I start a video on youtube the audio may disappear or adds on certain webpages, game sounds and more. It can be fixed temporarily by inactivating then activating the headphones in system settings, but it goes away quite quickly again.


Hopefully this description will help bring some insight to what is causing these issues,


Thanks in advance,
