    I have 2 speakers and now only the right one works im not sure if its my speakers or my computer. OK well i get no sound from my left speaker but if I put a pair of headphones into my headphone jack and pull it out halfway my left speaker works and my right one goes dead. The Funny thing about it is that when i move the sound balance bar in "Volume Control" all the way to the left i get no sound at all even when the left speaker is working i have to pull the bar either in the middle or to the right to make it work. Also when i put headphones on i only get sound out of one side on a perfectly good pair of headphones. It seems like my sound card(or whatever) is only working right side only if thats possible is there a way to fix it or is it just my speakers that are busted????

    Note: All my balance bars for sound are set in the middle

    Firstly, check that the soundcard/chip is working properly, goto control panel and click sound,speech+audio devices, sounds+audio devices, hardware. This will give a list of devices and tell you if theyre working properly.
