Microphone/Headphone Static on startup, have to replug to fix.

I have been experiencing this problem suddenly where my microphone and headset have extreme distortion upon starting up my computer.

This only happens when my computer has been off for a while (i think), and restarting my computer OR replugging them fixes the issue.

They are both connected through an audio interface, which is then connected by USB to my computer.

I believe I have the most updated audio drives for my computer, and am now lost as to what to do. I have tried doing a USB power state reset but my problem still persists.

My computer specs:
Mic: Audio Technica 2035
Audio interface: Scarlett 2i2
Motherboard: MSI Gaming 5
OS: Windows 10 Pro

Double check your outlet is grounded that the PC is plugged into.
