There definitely isn't a problem with the wire. I've just played some music from my old laptop without moving anything and all speakers were working perfectly.

This is not a hardware issue, it's a software issue.

Ok, so if we can eliminate the physical connections then do you have the latest drivers and bios updates for your new laptop. Just cause it's new doesn't mean you have everything updated. Looking at the manufacturer download site for you model will often show updates for audio issues, read though and double check and update the drivers. A bios update is not what I'm suggesting at this moment but it's worth checking while you're at this!

If all drivers off mfgr's site and the sound card are installed and up to date then I think you could have a bad adapter. Try swapping the front channel cables with one another. If the right goes out then the adapter is bad and you should RMA or return it.

All of the cables and adapters are working fine, I've also installed the windows 7 driver for the sound card. The issue is that Windows 7 is playing the left speaker sounds through the central speaker (as well as the central speaker sounds) rather than the left one.

To reiterate - everything works fine when run on Linux

No idea where the emoticon came from, must have been a combination of some of the letters and numbers in the update

How about removing the driver and letting windows find a driver for the device on it's own when it's plugged in?
