    About a year ago, I bought the HP Pavilion Slimline s5780d Desktop PC.
    http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bi...d=5035352&prodTypeId=12454&objectID=c02713705
    All was fine and dandy.
    Then one day, about 2 months after my purchase of the PC, my speakers would only play sound from the left one. I thought that my right speaker had died, but didn't bother to replace it.

    4 days ago, I bought new parts to upgrade my PC.
    New casing, graphics card, RAM and speakers.

    Got a friend over to help me assemble it. Everything worked fine.


    But when I plugged in the new speakers, I realised that again, only the left speaker would work. I then concluded that the port in which the speakers were connected to was bad, and plugged the speakers into the headphone jack at the front of the new casing which worked.

    When I came back to the computer 2 days later, only the speaker on the RIGHT would work!

    I realised that I could reassign the ports at the rear as audio out via registry editing(my realtek control panel thing won't let me), but again, audio would only come from the left speaker.

    tl;dr, speakers connect to rear of computer, only left speaker has sound. Speakers connected to headphone jack at front of computer, only right speaker has sound.

    WHAT SORCERY IS THIS?!

    Thanks in advance!


    EDIT: I am running Windows 7 64bit Home Premium

    Mmm I think I'll get a new sound card when I have the time and see if that fixes the problem. I'll post an update once I get that done.
