Hello, I have a new computer with windows 7 Home Premium Edition. I have a problem with the speakers, I have 2.1 Yamaha and heaset Logitech. The sound comes only from the left speaker. I have download the new drivers from Asus site but still nothing. Any
The configuration is Asus P7P55D DELUXE, i7 860, Ati 5770, 4gb Ram, 1TB WD.
Have you recently installed or uninstalled any software or hardware?
Are you experiencing this with both headset as well as speakers?
I would suggest you to follow these steps.
1.Go to sound and in the play back tab chcek if the 2.1 speakers is listed and selected as default.
2.If it is not seen, right click and select show disabled and disconnect device and set 2.1 speakers to default and chcek if it works.
If this does not help, follow the steps below.
If your computer is having problems playing sound, try using the Playing Audio troubleshooter to fix the problem. It checks for common problems with your volume settings, your sound card or driver, and your speakers or headphones.
Open the Playing Audio troubleshooter by clicking the Start button, and then clicking
Control Panel. In the search box, type
troubleshooter, and then click
Hardware and Sound, click
Troubleshoot audio playback. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Thanks for your reply. Due to the fact that I am abroad for business I cannot check what you are suggesting but I can tell you the following:
1. I am experiencing the problem from the first time I check the speakers, 1-2 days after I bought the computer.
2. The problem is for both speakers and headset.
3. I have used the troubleshooting but it didn't find any problems and I have select the speakers as default. What I have noticed is that when I trying to test the speakers from the control panel all the sound comes from the left one.
My speakers used to work well with the old computer I cannot say the same for the headset, maybe I will try a new set of speakers.
Hello again I am back so I can try what you proposed.
1. On the play back tab I am only stereo speakers, they are set as default. When I try to configure I don't get any options for 2.1 speakers. I have the following options:
When I try to test the Stereo I can hear the sound when the test is for the left speaker, but when It does the test for the right Speaker I hear a from the left and the volume is low.
2. The option Show disabled and disconnect device is checked but I don't have 2.1 speakers, only stereo.
I've tried the troubleshooter but no problem appears.
I have a similar problem ... brand new HP dv6 2173cl notebook ... Windows 7 Home Premium. There is no separation between left and right speaker (ie, no stereo, only mono). I spent three hours on the phone with HP tech support yesterday and they could
not figure out the problem. Most people wouldn't notice it unless they were using headphones to listen to music. But for those of us who edit audio, video, and gamers, it is an issue. Reinstalling drivers did not solve the problem
I'm having the same exact issue right now, I just have some an old fashioned, 2 speaker setup. And sound only comes from the main speaker (The one with the power button/volume control on it) I've tried nearly every fix. The trouble shooter does NOTHING
for this whatsoever. And that's all the moderators/people who answer suggest. I have a near brand new set of bose headphone's, and even then, the problem consists, sound will only come out of the right speaker on the headphones. This is a real issue, and so
far, i've seen no help towards other than run the trouble shooter or buy new speakers.
I'm still having the problem, and i've yet to get a reasonable answer from anyone about this issue other than run the troubleshooter which hasn't done a single thing for it. The trouble shooter says everything is working as it should. When it's definately
not. I'm getting mono sound, on a stereo setup. And i've seen loads and loads of other people with the problem, and no fix. Im thinking of just going back to windows xp because this is ridiculous.
