Hello @zrazzle!
Change it to your laptop speakers, restart Spotify, change it back to your headphones and restart Spotify again.
Tell me if it worked, please 😉 Kudos would be appreciated!

This worked a treat! Windows had switch to "headphones" as the default playback device which caused me all the issues. Thanks ThePonti!

This did not work for me

 

I'm running Windows 8.1, all latest updates.

I have a Pioneer DDJ-SX sound card that I use to send 1/4" TRS line audio to my studio monitors

I have always used Spotify with this sound card before getting a new computer with Windows 8.1 installed (previously used Win 7)

 

Here's what I've tried...

 

1) installing and reinstalling spotify

2) changing the default sound card to the native sound driver from the pioneer one (this works, if I want to use my laptop speakers, but I don't)

3) updated Pioneer driver to the latest release

4) restarting the computer several times before and after doing anything

5) checking and unchecking hardware acceleration box and restarting before and after each of those attempts

 

Can't get Spotify to send the audio to this USB Pioneer DDJ-SX sound card so I can use it as a playback device for my studio monitors

 

PLEASE HELP!

I'm having the exact same problem --  I also have a Lenovo, and spotify continually skips songs when my speakers are plugged in, but not when playing through laptop speakers.  I've tried restarting, checking the playback device settings, and none of that works.
