No sound from left side of quad setup. Speakers are fine

  1. Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a bit of guidance if possible.

    My Dilemma:

    I have 2 sets of speakers plugged in to my computer - one set in the speaker jack, the other in the line in (switched to rear output).
    Until recently, everything worked fine, however now I am only getting sound from the right speakers from both jacks. There is no fault in any of the speakers. I've tried with only one set plugged in, and with them switched round - same result. Also the same result when I use headphones plugged in to the headphone jack at the front of my pc.

    Device manager has indicated no fault in any drivers.

    Hi Rob,
    did you apply any Windows updates, install new hardware or change any settings that may have caused this?

    Umm, I don't think so - I believe I have only used Windows Update once in the last couple of months, and that was after the problem had started to occur. Any thoughts?

    You might try running Windows Updates manually choosing Custom and download all the critical and hardware updates that are available... there should be quite a few updates available. Look for any audio updates in the hardware area
