Windows 7: Strange "directional" audio problem

Strange "directional" audio problem

Hello, I just created this account as soon as I remembered there were W7 forums

My problem is: In many games like Mount & Blade Warband, and Morrowind (yes, I still play it) I started to notice an issue with my sound: Voice audio, and other sfx audio like footsteps only work when the source is coming from the right side of my screen.
If a NPC is talking to me, and is on the left half, the sound won't work. But if I place him on the right half, it suddenly works.

Any help would be appreciated, as I don't know if it has to do with my audio definitions or anything.

Thank you.
