    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    It hurts when I do that! Response: Then don't do that!
    There is not enough information here to help. I like Plantronics headsets, but mostly I use their bluetooth ones these days. At work, I use a different brand of USB headset/mic, but then I run Win7 on the system (Linux is in a VM). So, if it is ok when unplugged on boot, then just unplug it first!

    Finally, report this to Plantronics. I have no idea if this will encourage them to research/fix the problem, but it can't hurt!
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Some headphone jacks are designed to kill the speakers and/or change the way the sound is dealt with. Have you tried to plug in the headphones after the boot is completed? If it works then, it's probably something to do with the jack itself. If you get the same errors after the boot and then plugging in the headphones, it could be the sound system is faulty. Try a live CD and see if that changes things. Also, I would make sure you have the latest motherboard BIOS. That can cause strange issues.
