This is what happens. I noticed that the sound would cut out, only coming out of one speaker. I could only fix this by jiggling around the wires, and then sometimes it would come back. Of course i figured it was my speakers, since they were a little old. Well, i had tried a pair of headphones, and plugged them right into the audio jack on my computer, and had the same problem. Only the right side of the headphones were working, same as my speakers. Again, if i jiggled wires, it would come back, but then go away again if you slightly touched the wires. Well i figured that it was unlikely, but the speakers, and headphones could both be broken. Well i recently bought a brand new headset, and low and behold, the same exact thing. Even when plugged right into the audio jack, it still does the same thing. I have to jiggle the wires for the sound to come out of both sides. It's quite annoying to say the least. Is there any software problems that could be causing this, or should i just go and buy a new sound card? The motherboard is only like 2 or 3 years old.
Any ideas? Thanks, and please let me know if you need any more information.
