Sound Coming From Wrong Speaker

  g4fne 17:01 01 Jan 2005

Hi all.

I have a problem in that when sound should come from right speaker it comes from left & vice versa.
I have checked all connections and they seem correct. I have same problem when using headphones also.

I have an onboard Realtek AC97 Codec ALC655 card.

Sounds fine for what i want but it coming out of wrong speakers (especially when gaming) is very frustrating.

I believe it to be the soundcard fault as borrowed another one and this fixed problem

Please could anyone offer a solution or advice. (apart from buying another soundcard.

It would be very appreciated

Many Thanks

Please don't take this the wrong way, but cant you swap the speakers over and perhaps wear the headphones the other way round?

Does it really matter if the sound comes from the wrong speakers - lol - ???

If the borrowed sound card did it right and you changed nothing else then it does seems as if the card is incorrect, but at the same time I cant see how bearing in mind how these are made there may be 10,000 or more that are wrong.
If you can swap speakers/head phones as suggested that is the easy option.

Yes i would agree swopping the speakers is a viable option when using 2ch seaker set up. The problem i have is when using 5.1ch set up with my headset, the rear channels are coming out of the correct side (ie. rear left is coming out rear left speaker but front left is coming from front right speaker).
Sort of loses the affect of the 5.1ch
