I got some headphones (Plantronics 655 DSP) for gaming purposes maybe 1-2 years ago at most and they haven't seen much use but they worked fine every time I plugged them in.
Trying to use them recently results in blue screens or simply distorted sound. I can hear the windows sounds and whatever I put on but it is heavily distorted.
I tried plugging them in a different USB port and the same thing happens. This computer is the old thing I browse the net with and is running windows XP.
The headphones work fine on my other computer (Win7).
Tried to upgrade my sound card drivers but it didn't fix anything and the support at Plantronics is non-existent.
Any idea what I should try next?
