From time to time, the audio output selector (the speaker icon on the pop-out bar beside the Wi-Fi and Eject icons) seems to get confused. The monitor's speakers will work when I've selected my interface, and visa versa. i actually have four choices here and sometimes they get switched, or some won't connect at all with the systems named. Is there something I can check?

From time to time,
Can you share for clarification, what exactly constitutes "from time to time".
Randomly including times of inactivity?
Only and or often following a cold boot?
Only and or often following a warm boot / restart?
What have you chosen as your default playback device

Most of the time "my case" it is a messup from MS nothing to do with anything else... so I go to control panel --> device manager --> and remove all item under Sound, video and game controllers --> close go back to desktop and click refresh in a blank space.

This occurs without any relation to anything I can discern. I'd say it happens more often after my computer has been running for awhile, but not always. I have four options, none of them are for gaming. (1-)My interface/DAC, (2-)My monitor's speakers, (3-)My audio to and from my computer {blue and green ports on computer}),(4-)Voicemeeter, which I never use. My default is my interface/DAC.
It seems to get confused where selecting one will connect another (i.e.-I click on my interface/DAC and the sound will come out of the monitor's speakers. )

CPU is not confused, it is more than possible you have a corruption. which in effect is your OS. Not the CPU.
and very common with Windows OS's. I can only suggest you run a full complete Corruption check on your OS.
