Windows 7: Win 7 audio balance not working. Help!

Win 7 audio balance not working. Help!

Hello, I'm having a slight problem with my audio balancing atm. I've been sick recently and fluid has entered my right ear, so i have to move some audio over to it, which is proving extremely hard because:

  • when i move the left channel volume down, the right channel volume follows it.
  • I have no external audio programs running.
I am currently using a Gigabyte Tech Co. Mobo, and my headphones are plugged in via optical jack. (Same problem occurs with 3.5 to 3.5 jacks)

I have also done a search for updated audio drivers. Many times.

I found a temporary fix. There was an application hiding in my task manager that i disabled and turned off. Now i can balance properly, but it comes back every reboot.
