Only 1 of 2 speakers plays

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware (More info?)

Hello! Just last night both of my speakers were working fine. Now, only one of the two speakers plays. I have already checked the wires, control panel --> audio, and pretty much everything I can think of, and I'm still puzzled. Whats even stranger is that the main speaker (one that is in charge of adjusting the volume) is the one that does not play, yet when I adjust the volume, the other speaker (the one that works) follows the command. I'm truely puzzled and need help.

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Silly suggestion, but anyway: did you plug the speakers connector till the
    end?
    If your CDROM drive has an audio jack, you can check the speakers plugging
    them in it or in any other audio device such as a walkman or MP3 player. If
    you have the headphones you can check the computer, indeed.

    is the balance even in volume controls?

    hmm.....try this - with something playing try to insert and kinda twiddle
    the connector to the pc. i think it happened to me once. it was the
    connector that was kinda screwy and i had to adjust it as it. see if that
    works....maybe that might not be the problem at all. if i think of anything
    else, i will post it.

    Did you check the wire leading to the speaker that wasn't
    working?
