Sound from both speakers coming from one speaker only

Q: Sound from both speakers coming from one speaker only

I have got a Toshiba Portege M400 laptop, there only the left speaker works on it. I've tried going into properties making sure the right speaker is unmuted and made sure both speakers are balanced but still no sound from the right speaker. When i actually test my speakers, where you would expect there to be one sound coming from the left speaker, then that stops then there should be another sound in the right speaker shortly after, i get BOTH sounds coming from the left speaker. I get a loud tone the first time, then a quieter tone but still audible again in the left speaker. So my assumption is that the sound that is supposed to come from the right speaker is in the left aswel. This causes problems when i play my music because instead of sharing the sound between the two speakers, they are both being played through just the left speaker which causes crackling in sound and distortion.
Ive tested the sound when i put headphones in, and both the left and right ear speaker works, just not when i try and play from the inbuilt speakers.
I have a SgmaTel HD Audio CODEC, Vista SP2 , any help would be appreciated

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Sound from both speakers coming from one speaker only

If only speaker is working on your laptop, it is possible that the right speaker itself on your laptop could already be failing and needs to be repaired. Since you tested the sound by using a headphones and the left and right works properly that means there is no problem with the driver. So my suggestion is send your laptop for repair and have the right speaker replaced.

Hi everyone. I have my headphones plugged in and am getting poor sound quality out of them. My computer says that the sound is coming through my speakers, but its not (its just coming through the headphones.) I've attached a picture of what the comp's showing me for reference. I've tried going to the Sound menu and making the headphones the default device, with no luck. This issue seemed to happen after I was done using Google video chat with my headphones plugged in. I am trying to get the sound quality in my headphones back to normal. They work with every other device. Please help!

I wanted to raise 2 issues here actually. Long story short, sound is only coming out of 1 of my 2 speakers. It may help to know that I just got it back from my software friend today who had fixed my PC which had a scrambled IP address. Now it gets kind of complicated but I will try and make it sound as simple as possible.

A few days ago I went on my PC after my brother was using it for a while, and when I went to play music I got a message saying there was something wrong with my sound device, and that it wasnt properly installed. I tried everything basic, but to no avail so did a system restore using a program reccomended on here called ERUNT (as my normal System Restore does not work for some strange reason). After doing the restore, my system restarted and not only did the sound problem not get fixed, but my internet had once again scrambled. There was something scrambled with my IP address as this happened to me once before as well. I gave it to a friend of mine to fix and he did it well, but I just noticed that the sound is now only coming out of one speaker. I have checked the basic volume settings and the balance and volume of all aspects is even and in good setup, so I think it could be a hardware issue but definitely also able to be some sort of issue with my PC settings or what not.

Any help really appreciated. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

A:Sound only coming out of one speaker!

Oh and sorry, my other issue that I wanted to bring up was this ERUNT backup program which made my initial problem worse. Like basically, what the hell? I'm thinking I should just delete this program as it seems its no good to me. It didnt help much, and actually just made the problems on my PC worse with its backup restore.

After troubleshooting this audio problem for HOURS I can't seem to find a solution.

My situation looks like this:

Subwoofer connects to the onboard audio jack, and a set of 2 generic speakers connect to a jack in the subwoofer. Sound emits from the Subwoofer okay, but only one of the two speakers is emitting sound.

I've gotten the latest audio drivers for my motherboard, and the speakers are in tip top shape (I even tested them on other computers and they work perfect.)

So..that means we've narrowed it down to a software problem, right?
PLEASE please help me. I'm stumped.

Hey,

If this is the wrong forum for this question then I apologize in advance.

I'm having some problems when I try to record music.

I have my microphone plugged in, but whenever I sing/play into the microphone, the sound only comes out from the right speaker. Therefore, when I mix my songs using my software, the sound is still only coming out of the right speaker, which is very frustrating. This also means that if I listen to my songs on my iPod, the music is only coming out of the right headphone.

If I listen to songs from CDs or whatever, or just any other sound on the computer, the sound is coming out of both speakers simultaneously as is normal. I only have problems when I am using my microphone.

I am using Windows XP (2002 Home Edition) and Realtek HD Audio Manager. My speakers are ViewSonic Speakers, which entails a subwoofer and two smaller speakers (the left and right ones). I plug my microphone into the blue 'Line In' port at the back of my computer rather than the pink 'Microphone' port, because this is what works best for the recording/mixing software I am using, but even when it is plugged into the 'Microphone' port I have the same problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much,

Tim.
 

A:Sound problem: Mic sound only coming out of one speaker

Either the Microphone cable is not plugged in correct.Try not to plug it in all the way/or push it in further. Sometimes you have to play around with it to get them to work. Or you might have the balance on the microphone on one side which is a setting in the Sound Icon. Double click on The Icon and then options and then on Properties. Make sure There is a check mark next to Microphone and then click OK. You should see the Microphone settings on the screen and make sure the balance is in the middle. If none of this works you might need a new Microphone.

I'm having an issue with my sound where nothing comes out of the speaker on top of my laptop and all the sound come of of the two small speakers on the bottom.  Even with volume all the way up on the  system, it's difficult to hear music playing or anything else. I have gone through the troubleshooting steps in HP Support Assistant, attempted to update my driver on the system speakers, ran troubleshooter on audio issues, restarted the computer, removed the battery and restarted, ran hardware diagnostics, etc.  So far nothing has brought back sound to my speaker. I upgraded to Windows 10 about a year ago and I don't remember if this issue began before or after upgrading. All my drivers are updated and enabled.  Speakers are enabled and running. Just no sound out of the one speaker. I'm still able to hear audio playback throuhg my bottom speakers, headphones, HDMI, etc.; it's just the speaker on the top of my computer directly below the monitor that is not working.

Yesterday, I bought a pair of Samson Studio GT studio monitors. which connect to my computer via USB. However, I'm only getting sound out of one monitor/speaker, that would be the right side with the power cable. I've checked the speaker wires and made sure they were hooked up correctly for polarity. There are no drivers for these speakers on SamsonTech.com. Windows sees everything correctly, as these speakers have a built in audio interface for audio production, which is what I do.
This is definitely not an issue with the speakers, because I managed to hook up my computer to the speakers'/monitors' aux RCA inputs and got sound out of BOTH speakers! What is most interesting is that headphone output from from the SPEAKERS/MONITORS functions the same in both cases. (One case with audio out the right speaker, the other case with audio out of both). However, these speakers (I'm just going to call them that from now on) have two headphone outputs. When hooked up via USB, and when listening on headphones, the phone output to the right only outputs right channel audio, and the left only outputs left channel audio. But when hooked up via the RCA inputs, both headphone outs put out as stereo.
I suspect there is something within my Windows 8 installation that's screwy. I can use these via the RCA inputs coming from my PC's sound card, but I would like to get this working via USB, as mentioned earlier, these speakers have an built in audio interface that I want ... Read more

A:New brand USB speakers. sound from one speaker only on USB

I have a studio using Sonar X2 and have Samson Resolv 6.5a studio monitors (they are not USB).

I notice in the manual these have a mono and stereo mode. Have you tried that or checked to see if they are set for stereo.

As they work with the Analog input, that does not say everything is working. The USB interface and associated internal electronics could have a problem.

One more thing to try. Connect the speakers and then go to the Device Manager. The speakers should be listed, probably in the Sound Video and Game Controllers section (most likely place). RIGHT click on the entry for the speakers to highlight them, then LEFT click "Uninstall". Then physically disconnect the speakers from the PC, restart the PC and after Windows starts connect them and Windows should detect "new hardware" and install them. If there were some type of system corruption this will fix that.

Last, try them on a different PC (doesn't have to be a Win 8, could be a Win 7 PC) and see if the work OK on that system or if you have the same problems. There are many different USB PC speakers available today and Win 7/8 is set up to handle them.

Nice - you have narrowed this down to a Windows issue . I would try updating the driver first or rolling it back if updating is not an option. If you go back into device manager and check the properties on your sound device is there an option to Update or Roll Back the driver to a previous version?

If that doesn't work I would try uninstalling it in device manager the right click on Sound in Device Manager and select Scan for Hardware Changes to have it detected / re-installed or just reboot.

About a month ago I turned on my PC to discover no sound from my speakers but there is sound from my headphones.
The speakers are only a few months old and work on other thing so it cant be them.
In the playback device speaker is selected and the bars are moving as normal.

I recently reformatted my hard drive and restored windows. Now I am not able to get any sound from my speakers. Winamp will open and will play music, but no sound comes out. Could u please shed some light on the subject? Thanks in advance.
 

A:Why do I not have sound coming from my speakers?

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

You need to reinstall your sound drivers.

If you use onboard sound then you can get the drivers from your mobo manufacturers website. If your computer is an oem such as Dell/E-machines etc, then visit the website of your computer manufacturer.

If you use a separate soundcard, then you will be able to get the drivers from your soundcard manufacturers website.

I am running Windows 98SE and recently reformatted, added more ram and a new hard drive. After all this was done, I downloaded winamp 5.1 and while the program runs, no sound will come out of my speakers. I went to the gateway suport website, entered my computer serial number and downloaded the drivers for my Soundblaster Live Sound card (model #CT4830). In the mix of changing settings, now i am unable to even open winamp and it gives me this wave output error "Another program is using your soundcard. Please change out device (in Waveout plugin configuration), switch to DirectSound output (in Winamp preferences/plug-ins/output) or get a sound card which can play multiple streams."

What in the world do I do to fix this problem?

Thanks,
Nate
 

A:Still no sound coming from my speakers....please help

you could always try uninstalling winamp, then do a fresh download and reinstall it. i had a similar problem with winamp, i think there was an interuption in the download and it didnt install alll of the files onto the pc.

Just a thought, but its worth a try.

I'm on my dad's Dell XPS laptop (runs on Vista) and can't get sound. It's apparently been this way for a long time, so I can't begin to guess what triggered the problem. Here's what I am looking at right now:

The driver seems to be working fine based on what those pictures show. I get no error messages. Still though, nothing comes out the laptop speakers. There's headphone jacks on it, and I've tried them with no luck. I have a Sound Blaster X-Fi card, but it's not plugged in.

Any help I can get on this would be appreciated!
 

A:Sound Not Coming Out Speakers

Hey, I've tried repairing speakers, checking for updates, switching which speakers I use, loads and loads of forums, but I can't get sound coming from the speakers, even though in the tests, they say they're fine. All my speakers/playback devices are showing, working or not, but I can't fix the problem.

I recently had to do a system restore, because of internet problems, took me ages to sort out, however the sound wasn't working before the restore anyway.

Haven't tried uninstalling/reinstalling the sound card/device yet, mainly because I only have my laptop here, if i need any disks then I'll need to wait a while to get them.

Sound does work with external speakers plugged in, so I'm starting to think I might need to get my laptop speakers fixed?

Sony Viao AR-71M is the model, I believe.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated

Thanks

Matt

Hello everyone,

I have a strange issue with a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ71VN Notebook. Every time the Wireless switch is turned to the "on" position, the right speaker makes random noise. Turning the wireless to off makes the sound go away. Here is what I have done so far:

- sound driver newly installed
- Audio daughterboard replaced
- Speakers replaced
- Wireless card replaced

Even after all of these pieces of hardware have been replaced, the issue still remains. The speaker consistently makes a short scratching noise after the wireless switch is turned to the "on" position. I had the idea that the wireless card may be interfering with the speakers, but even replacing the wireless card made no difference. Does anyone have an idea what could be causing this ghostly issue?

A:Random Sound coming from right speaker when switching wireless switch

Wi-Fi is a known potential cause of noise in audio. If you browse the Sound section of the forum you will find many posts about noise, popping, crackling, etc.

Run the DPC Latency Checker and see what that shows, both with the wi-fi on and off.
I suspect with wi-fi on you will see spikes.
DPC Latency Checker

For even further, in depth, Latency diagnosis, run the Resplendence Latency Monitor.

Help!! I have a new (ish) laptop and everything has been fine until a couple of days ago when a red cross appeared on the speaker icon.  I've run the diagnostic tool by clicking on the icon but only my Bose wireless headphones appear in the list, and the tool is unable to resolve the probem with the speakers.  When I use the Bose wireless headphones, the red cross goes and the headphones work fine.  I've tried the Device Manager too to clear the red cross issue, but cannot find a way for it to help resolve the problem. The laptop doesn't have any sound from the speakers, nothing.  If I plug normal/ regular headphones into the jack, then the Bang & Olufsen message appears on the screen to notify that the headphones have been connected, but there is no sound from the headphones and the cross remains on the speaker icon. If I hover over the red cross then a message appears "no speakers or headphones are plugged in"
