Windows 7: Sound from right side only after windows wakes up

Sound from right side only after windows wakes up

When Windows awakens I have sound only from the right side. If I do a restart the sound comes from both right and left. I have reinstalled audio drivers (onboard Asus N4A78 Pro VIA). But when it falls asleep and awakens, same problem no sound from left side. I originally thought it was my 2.1 speakers and replaced them but have same problem with these. Gotta be a Windows issue. Any ideas? It only happens when Windows goes into a deep sleep.

Usually, drivers are at the root of sleep problems. Update the Video drivers from the AMD site, along with the latest sound driver from Asus. I see you have reinstalled the sound driver but was it the latest as noted?

Another thing that you can try. Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the sound device and then LEFT Click "Uninstall" (DO NOT check th box to also uninstall the drivers). Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the Sound. Sometimes this will put the sound on a different shared IRQ (Interrupt) and fix flakey things.

I uninstalled the onboard sound like you said, Windows finds and installs it and it works fine until it falls asleep and wakes up. No sound from the left side again. The drivers I have are the latest from the Asus web site. I've looked around and played around with the device settings and the only way I can get stereo is when I restart the pc. But when it falls asleep, the same problem happens when it wakes up. I've read online where other people have had a problem with no sound after windows wakes up. But those posts were from few years ago. Maybe I'll try a separate sound card.

I don't think it's just the sound card. Video drivers as I noted have been known to cause problems. Use the latest driver for the Video card from the AMD (ATI) site.

Other than a driver, it's something to do with Windows and that would be a question for a different forum section. It's not "only" a sound problem.

My audio drivers were the latest version they had at Asus but I noticed it said Beta. So I just installed the older driver. No I'll wait and see what happens. I'll keep you posted.

So far so good. Sound from both speakers when Windows 7 wakes up from deep sleep. When I installed Window 7 (back in December) I went and got the latest drivers for everything I needed. I didn't notice the Audio drivers said Beta. The date on them was 2010.06.24. Long time for being Beta? Hopefully going back to the old drivers did the trick.

Thanks
