Windows 7: How do you know if your Soundcard is having issues?

How do you know if your Soundcard is having issues?

Well, recently I've had Sound problems, however, they're not too bad.
It could be that I have to rotate the headset plug in the computer, else I will only hear sound on one ear? Sorry my english isn't the greatest. I've tried this on multiply headsets, they all experience the same issue, so it's not a problem with the headset.
The second issue is, earlier today my music program said "Could not play your music due to a problem with your soundcard".
That's when it hit me, how do I check this?
