One sound channel bad? Tags: Motherboards Last response: February 26, 2010 4:45 PM in Motherboards Share jake60 February 24, 2010 7:42:34 AM I am running an Asrock 775 dual vsta with a 2.8gh pentium D dual core. Everything was fine until earlier tonight I lost my left stereo channel. I went online to listen to an AM radio station which was not in stereo. I only got sound out of the right channel. The bad thing was that when I left the online am station I still only have the right channel. I have removed all my audio video codes and sound programs. No difference. Reinstalled the Realtech sound drivers twice without any help. I have been around computers for a long time. I have stacks of old motherboards where one thing or another went wrong with them. Mainly onboard IDE hard drive controllers. But one channel of stereo is a new one to me. Never had onboard sound go out, if that is what it is. Anybody fimilar with this problem? Any help appreciated. Thanks More about : sound channel bad Chainzsaw a b V Motherboard February 24, 2010 3:49:23 PM Do you have any other stereo speakers you can try out? Have you checked your cables to make sure they are seated properly? I've had speakers die before - well just one side so I had to get new speakers. m 0 l jake60 February 24, 2010 4:26:22 PM I have 4 computers in a row here and checked it all out with other computers. m 0 l Related resources One stick from a dual-channel kit went bad - Forum Only one sound channel and 2 sound cards tested - Forum A7N8X Deluxe Mobo SOund - One Channel dead - Forum stadard dual channel pci ide controller BAD - Forum looking for a filmware update for a clover 2208 8 channel all in one - Forum Can't find your answer ?

I am afraid I have a bad channel on the onboard sound. m 0 l Chainzsaw a b V Motherboard February 24, 2010 4:57:11 PM By the way, what program do you use to play internet radio? By any chance is it windows media player? m 0 l Chainzsaw a b V Motherboard February 24, 2010 5:03:35 PM Also one more thing you can try: Open your sounds and Audio devices Properties (should be a little speaker on the bottom right of your screen, if not go to the control panel). Now click on "Advanced" of the first page of the sounds properties Look at the following speaker settings : Play control and Wave Under "Play control" and "Wave" are the "Balance" settings right in the middle? It's possible the slider is on the far right. Move it to the middle if it is. m 0 l jake60 February 24, 2010 5:16:54 PM The stattion had its own player. I have been been around computers since the early 1980s and building my own since the PCXT.
