Question about Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Sound Card

1 Answer

Only hearing sound out of left side of headphones

I have been having fluctuating issues with any headphones that I use from either the wired remote on these speakers or from directly connecting to the computer. I have tried everything I know. I have even tried installing VIA Audio Chipset Drivers (since my PC has a VIA motherboard) and I have tried installing a Realtek Audio Codec. Neither of these tries has resulted in stereo coming from the headphones. The weird thing is that I can hear beautifully in stereo from the actual speakers themselves but the minute I plug in my headphone (any headphones) I can only hear from the left. I tried moving the cable and this sometimes fixed the problem a couple of days ago, but recently it no longer fixes it. I would greatly appreciate any help you could give. I am at a loss and just want to hear from my headphones in peace! Thank you! Have same problem but hearing only from right side.

    I connected the headphones directly to the headphone jack on the PC and it's working fine. Just when I connect throught the SoundBlaster volume regulator, where the other jack is, it happens. And only sometimes. After a few restarts of the PC it's gone.

I think the problem is in the jack of your sound blaster. since you have already tried different headphones and the problem still persist, and when you use speakers it works fine. i conclude it is the jack of your sound blaster card.

I have this issue as well, you need to (depending on what software you use) duplicate the track and set one input to US-144MKII Left and the other to US-144MKII Right. As far as I'm aware, this is the only way to get an even sound..

Greetings,

It looks to me that the some of the options might be disabled in the sound properties menu.

Double click on the sound icon present on the left hand side of the side bar. Once the volume menu opens up, then click on the 'Options' menu ---------> Select Properties ---------> Once the Property Menu opens up. Look for the options Rear', 'Subwofer', 'Side', 'Front'.
Ensure all these options are selected. Click 'Ok' tab and close the box.

This should resolve your issue.

Please feel free to reply in case you face problem.

Have a nice day !

My left speaker on my gateway ML3706 laptop just stoped working


If you get sound from both sides of the headphones when you plug it into the same jack the speakers normally plug into all you need to do is replace the speakers. If you mean you plug the headphones into the cd drive that's nothing special. You could have a bad sound card, bad connection in the jack, or bad speakers.

Stereo Speaker troubleshooting


It sounds like the audio jack itself has internal damage. Depending on how it is mounted on your laptop case, or possibly on an internal circuit board inside the laptop; it might be possible to repair the jack or replace with a new 1/8" audio jack. Some soldering skill may be required after disassembling the laptop and getting access to the jack.

Low sound in headphone


I would say it is because the unit does not have a built in amplifier. The speakers are powered PC speakers of studio monitors I am guessing. Try plugging the headphones into the headphone jack of the speakers if they have a headphone jack or try a set of powered headphones out of the Edirol and see if it helps.

That should remedy the problem.

No sound ...


Go into global settings, choose the MIDI settings and make sure the very first box is checked. I lost my sound and had a similar problem and just did some troubleshooting and once I clicked that box, my sound returned. Hope this helps.
