  1. Good afternoon. I have a quick question for those who can help and or have had the same problem before. My problem is I can only hear sound in my right ear, I've tried getting new headphones and speakers, and I can still only hear out of the right side. Things I have tried to fix this:

    Opened up sound control and made sure all the balances were in the middle.

    Tryed getting new drivers from realtek (ugh)

    Attempted contacting realtek (ugh)

    System Info:
    AMD athlon(tm)64 Processor 3700+
    Audio Driver Version:
    DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c
    Audio Controller: nVidia(0059)
    Audio Codec: Alc850

    PLEASE Don't tell me i gotta get a new sound card this pc is new would suck if i have to...

    I assume it is on board sound? Get a card, even a cheapo Trust (£20.00) is easier to troubleshoot than on board. Download Audacity. This is a free recording package and has meters and will show you whats working or not.
