Realtek on-board sound channels (L/R) are REVERSED!
I have a Gigabyte GA-P55-UD5 motherboard with on-board sound by Realtek, and my case is Thermaltake's "Element G".
I connected the front panel audio cable to the designated connection on the motherboard, however, whenever I plug-in my headphones, the stereo is reversed! Meaning that the headphone for the Right ear is playing the audio channel for the Left ear, and vice versa.
I end up having to wear my headphones in reverse to enjoy correct stereo sound.
I checked the front panel audio connection to the motherboard, thinking that maybe I plugged it in the wrong way or something, but apparently there is only one way to plug it in.
My first guess was that this was a design flaw with the case, and that they mixed up the audio channel connections in the front panel. However, when I plugged my headphones DIRECTLY to the REAR audio jack, it's exactly the same story!
The fact of the matter is that the on-board audio is mixing up the stereo channels! I actually remember that on my previous computer with on-board audio it was the same exact problem.
1) Is this a known issue with on-board sound cards in general?
2) Most importantly, is there any way I can fix this in Windows 7? Reverse the stereo channels so that they are outputted correctly?
Thanks in advance!!

lol yeah I googled the crap out of this issue until finally I found a reference by someone on some forum complaining about a similar problem until he replace the cable he was using and solved the issue. So I tried using a different pair of headphones and viola! Problem solved!
