For a while now I've been trying to figure out what has been wrong with my speakers, but then realized that it wasn't my speakers. I am only getting sound out of my left speaker and never my right. I don't know whether or not it's a hardware or software problem. If you need any details please ask! I'll be on pretty much most of the day. Thanks! :cya:

Are you using onboard sound or a sound card? Sometimes channels on onboard can go out be it due to a faulty speaker jack or the MB circuitry and/or audio chip itself. Happened to me on my Realtek AC/97 onboard on my MSI 865PE Neo-2P. What's weird is I can get both channels fine when recording with Fraps, so I suspect it may be a faulty speaker jack on my MB. You should also check though that your speaker plugs are all the way in. Also make sure in your audio device panel and the Windows Sound and Audio Devices properties you don't have one channel muted.

I have the exact same onboard card, not the MB though. I checked the jacks and there good. I also tried updating the drivers(no go), I just thought about checking whether or not the jacks are seated in the board are steated correctly. One sec.

It can be hard if not impossible to tell if the jacks are good when you're not getting sound out of one side. You could try recording something with a free capture program or demo of a capture program that records audio. That will at least tell you if the onboard sound is at least recording audio properly.

What you said about testing that the "jacks are seated in the board", which I take it you mean speaker plugs, as the jacks are the ports, is what I already suggested...

"You should also check though that your speaker plugs are all the way in"

...but yeah, definitely do that. It's also good to while at a moderate vs loud volume level, slightly rotate the plug on the side not working and even wiggle it slightly to see if it produces sound, if so, your jack is definitely bad.

Curious, have you tried plugging in some other speakers or headphones to make sure that it's not the speaker plug?
