    I have an ASUS pentium4 512 mg memory with a nvidiaxfx5600 256 mg video and a creative sound blaster card. OS XP Pro.
    Problem::::
    Windows Media Player will not play left speaker. Have wiped it and reloaded,updated drivers etc.etc. Downloaded other players which work fine eg. Real Player,Creative Play Center. All the windows sounds work. Any games I play the sound works fine.
    Not sure exactly when it stopped working, tried restore as far back as allowed , no luck,changed sound cards, changed video cards,reloaded xp,
    HELP

    In WMP under tools>options>devices click on speakers and properties and advanced then speaker volume and check that both sliders are at the correct level. (I know you can do this from the tray, but its just to see if the properties on opening WMP are being changed).

    Dont know what version WMP your running zeddy but the same for WMP V9 can be dun by selecting pulldown :
    View --> Enhancement --> Graphic Equalizer

    A lot of sliders are shown & 1 of them is Balance.

    Did what you said and the balance was in the middle as I had checked this before but I had to move it anyway and just as i put the cursor on the balance arm and clicked to move it, on came the sound loud and clear,,,,,,,only thing i can think of is that somehow it was stuck inbetween,,,,had some pro's working on this problem and they couln't fix...I have been working on it for 3 weeks myself,,,,,SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
