Hi again folks (thanks for the help with Excel!)

I now have a new dilema (I think it could be time for some upgrading here).........

I came to my PC this evening to find that I have a problem with the balance of my sound, very loud on the right chanel, very quiet on the left chanel.

I have cheked, double checked, and re-checked all of my software settings, and also tried with different speakers, and even headphones, obviously connected directly to the card.

There doesn't appear to be any physical damage to the card, and as standard procedure, I removed LiveWare and the drivers whilst in Safe Mode, and re-installed drivers after rebooting.

Does anyone have any other ideas as to what might be causing the problem?

Hope someone could shed some light on this.

Thanks

Did you try your sound card in a DOS environment like a game or something? Does it happen with all audio formats or just wav files, etc.

This may be as dumb question, bt did you check the ballance in the SB Live! mixer? Right click on the speaker in your taskbar and click on open volume controls. It might have been canged some how. Some games change the sound level, maybe something changed the ballance (who knows why)...

Ahhhh.

I never even thought that it could be the Codecs !

I tried simply playing a CD with Analogue mode on.
Worked fine........

I have now removed and re-installed all of my Codecs, and I'm up and running again.

Thanks folks ! :cool:
