I assume you have a 2.1 speaker system (two small speakers and one bass speaker). First thing, check the connection to the PC. If the plug is not fully inserted or not making good contact you could only get one channel. Reseat the plug (unplug then plug back in making sure it's fully inserted). Same way check the other end of the cable at the speaker system (probably goes to the bass speaker). If that is not the problem, it sounds like either a bad internal speaker system connection or a defective speaker system. If it's a defective speaker system and you are still under warranty contact HP or the speaker vendor, if it's not in warranty look for a new speaker system as they are not repairable.

1 more thing to try, right click on your speaker icon on the task bar. Then click on playback devices. Then right click on the device you are using for playback. Select properties, then select levels. On the main speaker level, you should see an icon that says balance, click it. First ensure that both the left and right channels are at the same level. If they are, move the slider to the left and then back to the right on both speakers.

Report back with results.

Most do not come back with a fix, if what is suggested fixes the problem. It's that way on most forums. I do a lot of support on the Dell forum and it's the same way, most of the time there is no feedback.

Right speaker thinks he's a left speaker
If the volume is low everything works fine, but once you turn it up using the volume button, the left speaker stops working. This only happens when I use the button, and not when I adjust the system sound. I tested it with the audio configuration, and I can hear what's supposed to be the left...
