Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2

2 Answers

Left headphone speaker and left speaker both are not working.

On my computer, my left headphone speaker AND my left speaker on my computer (included with the monitor) do not work. All of these have been running perfectly. I have tried the headphones in another computer, and they worked fine. I have also tried changing the balance of the sound from the middle to the left, and this didn't help. I have tried unplugging and replugging the headphones into the computer, and this did not help. Does this mean I need to buy a sound card?

Buying a new sound card might solve the problem and the only reason it will is because it will come with a disc that has the proper drivers. But at the same time since its only affecting the left side, you may want to trace the audio wires and see if maybe its a burnt circuit or maybe a disconnected jack. Hope this was helpful. Good Luck =)

Probably, unless there is another setting that you have missed. Have you loaded the correct drivers for the sound card?

Lost sound in left channel?


I presume you are playing a stereo cd. Plug some other device, like headphones in to see if the computer is putting out stereo. Use the same plug as the speaker system is plugged into.
I presume you have swapped the speakers to test them.
If the speakers work, and the headphones work, it's the amp.

Only 1 side of my dr dre detox is working


THE INTERNAL WIRE CONNECTING BOTH HEADPHONES IS BROKEN. THIS PROBABLY HAPPENED WHEN TWISTING ONE OF THE HEADPHONES TO HEAR ONLY THROUGH ONE OF THEM. TRY FEEDING EEACH HEADPHONE INDEPENDENTLY WITH ITS OWN CABLE USING ONE OF THOSE PLUGS TO SHARE MUSIC FROM SAME SOURCE.

Sound through headphones only.


Try the speakers on another computer, to see if they work at all. If they do, then the problem is the audio-interface on your computer (or DVD-player, or home-stereo system).

I have an mp3 player that i want to hook up to my logitech x-540 speakers but when i do it only plays on the front, or rear speakers depending on which cord i plug it into, is there a way where i can use...


An MP3 player is a stereo device, meaning that it works on two channels - left and right. Therefore a 5.1 speaker system will only play on 2 speakers.

However, if you want to use rear speakers as well, just for the fun of it (you won't get any surround effects, both left speakers will play the left channel, and both right speakers the right channel) you can purchase a "headphone Y-adaptor", that normally allows two people to use two pairs of headphones on the same portable music device.
It has one headphone plug and two headphone sockets in parallel. Plug it into the player, and to the sockets plug the front and rear speaker cables :)

Please come back with a testimonial if helped :)

Little sound out of left satellite in Logitech S200 2.1-system.


Try plugging in some headphones to the right satellite, unplugging them and turning the speakers off and on. This worked for me, and is probably the switch getting stuck between headphones & normal speakers.
