I have and Intel S5520SC motherboard with integrated Realtek audio. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I installed the Realtek drivers from the Intel driver CD.

Mostly things work ok except ever now and then it gets into this mode where the sound cuts in and out and I get messages you just plugged a device into the audio jack, or you just unplugged a device from the audio jack

I'm not sure if this is hardware or software, but I have noticed that when I have my headphones plugged into the front of my computer the problem never occurs. The problem only seems to occur when I'm one the main speakers.

Cheers, Eric

I would not say the "system" is under warranty as I built it myself.

The main speakers are connected to the back.

Yes, there is a speaker/headphone jack in the front, along with the microphone. They are connected to the farthest point on the motherboard next to the rear speaker ports, and the cables barely reach. I wonder if inducted electrical interference from the motherboard could be making the audio driver sense this connection coming and going (when there is nothing actually connected). When there is something connected then there is never a problem.

This problem seems to be related to the Realtek driver because before I installed it the native Windows 7 audio drivers did not have this problem.

I downloaded the latest Realtek driver from Intel. It is newer than the one I installed from the Intel driver CD. Unfortunately it does not solve the problem.

The problem does go away if I reboot my system and only starts after I plug my headphones into the front of my system.

I'm convinced this is a driver problem now, so my only recourse is to contact Intel technical support.

Cheers, Eric

Don't give up, there are other techs that might give you help. Like uninstalling in add/remove prodrams in safe mode, then reboot and let windows install again.

i have tried multiple threads on this site. and contacted intel about it. no one has a solution or any good ideas. I am fine with using the back usb ports. When i do anything important like for school i use vista anyways. It is much more stable than 7.
