  1. I dont know if this problem is hardware or software related...

    The sound channels seemed to be mixed up...

    Right channel is playing in the left speaker and left channel is playing in the right speaker.

    Even when i do the auto test, this happens.

    What can i do to fix this ??

    checked with headphones? If they play fine then spk input or cable is wired incorrectly. Otherwise it is either the output or software setting.

    how hard is it to switch them around? seems easier than rewiring and spending hours troubleshooting...

    it could be that card itself is defective or its a software issue.
    What kind of sound card do u have?

    I have a Creative X-Fi Gamer (AMAZING card- relatively inexpensive, doesn't take much space, good software, amazing sound quality)

    Get new drivers, and look in the sound control panel to make sure they aren't switched. If they aren't I'd say you screwed up and put the white where the right channel is supposed to be and red in the left. White is Left, Red is Right.
