So I just moved my computer, and I replaced my video card. My speakers only play one channel of the sound, but both speakers work. I have an Altec Lansing BX1021 sound system, and they don't have a product manual online for it anymore. I'm worried I could have bumped something out of wack while moving, but I'm hoping that it's just a software compatability issue. Thanks

let's see:

before anything esle
- try headphones to rule out speakers

runbox command
- press buttons on keyboard: winkey + r
- paste: mmsys.cpl
- press: enter
- click: advanced
- see if your settings are for your configuration.

runbox command
- press buttons on keyboard: winkey + r
- paste: sndvol32.exe
- press: enter
- check to see if none have turned down or muted

runbox command
- press buttons on keyboard: winkey + r button
- paste: devmgmt.msc
- press: enter
- see if there are yellow blobs on sound devices, means missing drivers.

I don't have a headphone jack in my system, is there another way to test that? Also, everything is configured fine, nothing is muted, and there were no yellow blobs on sound devices.

OK, I have been googling but probably like you without much joy, what leads does this speaker system have, also what do you mean by one chanel of sound( do you mean for example left hand speaker sound coming out of both left and right speakers)

Yes, googling is difficult. I don't know what a lead is, but the only one channel is coming through, as in I am getting only side of the speaker sound out of both speakers (I don't know which side, but it is the problem you described in the post.)

my wording then sorry, a lead is the cords that go into the computer from the speaker system, depending on type, they can be a simple green one only(most speaker systems are one cord only), but better systems have other coloured ones too, for example a green one(left) and a red one(right), big soundaround systems have three leads being green red and another colour, not being able to find your specs on google I am asking directly here,

to be honest I don't think it is the computer here, I am hoping that it is a faulty connection somewhere

I FIXED IT! WOOOOO! It turns out I didn't have the lead cord plugged all the way in. Thanks for the help man, I really appreciate it.
