    Having a very odd, unusual sound problem on my desktop

    On my all-in-one Dell inspiron I've noticed the sound is significantly higher when I have a device plugged in, whether it be my bamboo tablet or my phone, unplugging them during playing audio, I'd suddenly hear the sound drop a good 5-8 decibels(aka about 20-40 on the volume bar) and it doesn't seem to be a glitch because it's been constant over a month now, am I doing something wrong? Are there any settings I can fix to stop this?I dont want to have keep my phone plugged in every time i watch a youtube video.

    Do you have the proper Dell supplied sound driver?

    This is one for the Dell forum, since they are more familiar with Dell products.

    Home - Dell Community

    The Dell desktop forum section is probably the most applicable.
