    Hi,
    My speakers, that I've had for ages, have gone weird. Happened after taking out a graphics card so maybe related?

    > One speaker (the main one with controls etc) isn't working.
    > Volume Balance is normal
    > Updated drivers ages ago
    > Both earphone and volume (the green ones) jacks aren't working properly, when I plugin in headphones audio works with alot of background noise.
    > When I plug speakers into iPod, they work fine, so not the speakers.

    Any suggestions?
    This usually happens when i don't plug in speakers all the way in (fuzzy + one side working) but these are pushed all the way in..
    thanks.

    Onboard audio? Regardless, as you've ruled out the speakers, I'd suspect a faulty audio chipset/jack.

    You could always get an addon sound card.

    I had a similar issue regarding DirectX, no idea why but it couldn't hurt to try..

    Go to Start -> Run
    Type in "dxdiag" and hit enter
    Go to the 'Sound' tab and change the acceleration to basic.
    Try playing music or whatever you like

    If it doesn't work, just change the acceleration back to its previous state. :)
