Ok. So i searched up this same question on this same site but i have not found the solution yet. I just bought some new gaming headphones and when i plugged them in, only the left side worked but the right side didnt. I also plugged in other headphones and the right side doesnt work but the left does. My next step was to connect both my new gaming headphones and the other headphones in my mp3 player. It worked perfectly. Now i know it isnt the headphones. What now? P.S. I use really old headphones from like the 90's so i have to use a adapter to be able to hear it on the pc. (the original jack is too big.) ( I also have speakers, the speakers work fine.)

I am guessing these aren't USB headphones. I have had this issue before, your headphone connector is probably receded.

Unless the headphone jack is 100% seated it doesn't work with both sides. You can test this on your MP3 player as well by connecting your headphones, then pull them out just a hair and you will have mono sound.

There are many fixes for this, but the cheapest and easiest is either usb headphones, or usb sound card.

Well the headphones that are not working on my pc are called "nox". They do have a usb cord connected to the head phones themselves but then at the end, its just a normal audio jack.

As you stated, the headphones work fine. the issue is with your PC, but its not a software issue as this is an analog device. If you don't want to buy USB headphones, then test the connection on your MP3 player first to make sure its jsut an issue of it not being 100% seated.

If it is, then you can remove the backplane from your PC's motherboard, trim down the motherboard side's headphone connector's plastic to ensure a deeper connection, or even file down the headphone jack itself (the plastic edges at the base of the connector, not the metal piece) to ensure a deeper connection.
