Windows 7: Headphone audio problems.

Headphone audio problems.

After powering on my PC today, I noticed a light high pitched ringing noise coming out of the left side of the headphones. I then tried to play some music, and had very low levels of sound coming out of the left side, while the right seemed seemed to be working fine. Does anyone have a general idea on what could be wrong?

something simple to check....are the headphones fully seated in the 3.5mm jack, assuming that the head phone use 3.5mm inputs. Sometimes if the jack is not fully pushed in all the way you get what you're experiencing.
