What kind of plug is at the end of your speaker cable and headphone cable? How many contacts are there on each?
Did you do any of this? Unfortunately, I was exposed to Kryptonite this morning and my mind-reading powers haven't returned yet.

The only way people who aren't in the same room as your computer can help you is if you answer the questions they ask.

Yes, I hovered and it told me what is what, I have tried to plug it into every plug, to no avail. There is no test to run to see if something is wrong? Like I said, it semed like when I plugged it in halfway, I could hear it through both briefly, but I have had it plugged in to the front the whole time I have had it. When I try the back, nothing...

You had stated:

... but I feel as if (not 100%) at one point, it worked in both speakers while plugged into the front. I could be wrong though.
So maybe you were wrong, after all, and it really has never worked.

Do the speakers work properly when connected to some other equipment you might have?

Have you tried a different set of speakers with the computer?

It may be that the speakers really are okay; it would be normal to suddenly hear the other speaker with the plug partially inserted into the jack.

But you never answer the question posed by profdlp:

in addition to what sibbil and the kind Professor have asked/stated, try this;

right click the speaker icon on your taskbar> click on playback devices> Right click on your audio out device> select configure speakers> select stereo> make sure the box next to front left and right is checked> click next> Click finish> right click on audio device again> click test...if you hear audio now from both speakers, then you are done, if not> with your audio device highlighted, select properties, on the bottom right> select the tab that says levels> the first section has a balance button, click it> move sliders for both left and right speakers all the way to the left, then all the way to the right. Do you have sound yet?

I literally registered for the forum just to thank you for that last set of advice. I was having the exact same problem and finally adjusting the balance levels did it. Thank you very much!

Hi Guys I have the same problem as the OP.

My speakers work fine in another computer.
When I plug them into the rear jack on this computer only the left speaker works.
I hear faint sound coming out of the right hand speaker.
I can adjust the volume fine out of the left hand speaker.
I have checked the balance as detailed above and it set correctly.

I have followed the following procedures described above but still have no success "right click the speaker icon on your taskbar> click on playback devices> Right click on your audio out device> select configure speakers> select stereo> make sure the box next to front left and right is checked> click next> Click finish> right click on audio device again> click test...if you hear audio now from both speakers, then you are done, if not> with your audio device highlighted, select properties, on the bottom right> select the tab that says levels> the first section has a balance button, click it> move sliders for both left and right speakers all the way to the left, then all the way to the right. Do you have sound yet?"

I get exactly the same issue when I try pluggin a set of head phones I have into the jack on the front of the computer, so the problem is not with the speakers or the jack.

Can anyone tell me where to from here?
