I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: No sound on left channel/asus motherboard

Front panel, back panel, or both? If both, I'd suspect a hardware fault. If the motherboard is new, contact the seller or manufacturer and get an RMA to have it replaced.

Hi all this is my first post Sorry that it's a request for assistance I have a problem with my self build HTPC In Volume Asus & STX Essence only control on left Xonar channel win7 - a nutshell since Volume control on left channel only - Asus Xonar Essence STX & win7 yesterday when I adjust the volume in a media player winamp or Jriver only the left channel changes in volume the right channel remains at Both channels were working OK volume worked on L and R however last night all of a sudden the right channel stopped altering I have changed nothing all cables and connections are sound I've check everything I Volume control on left channel only - Asus Xonar Essence STX & win7 can think of within the software and searched on the web for similar problems and can't find a solution This is a screen capture of my windows audio controls When I adjust the Jriver volume control both speakers change volume together yet when I change them in the program only the left channel alters When I change the quot Speaker quot control only the left channel changes Any ideas what I need to so to sort this It's a critical function as it's a HTPC primarily used for music and video playback Thank you very much Edit to add Using a different sound card solves the problem so it's definitely Xonar STX related

A:Volume control on left channel only - Asus Xonar Essence STX & win7

Reseat the Xonar sound card (with the PC powered off, unplug the card then plug back in). This may fix it. If not, reinstall the drivers for the sound card as a next step.

If it still does not work properly, I would suspect a hardware problem in the card.

Hello everybody

I have a P4-based PC, 1.5 GHz, intel 850 chipset, 768 rimm, sound onboard (AC97). I capture video with a Canopus DV-Storm card. I had Windows 2000 and all was working fine. I had recently to upgrade to WinXP. I am far from being a beginner in hardware. All devices are properly installed, the PC is working fine, but the same video capture (with the same Canopus capture software) gives me the the video with sound only on the left channel, its amplitude quiet reduced. Of course I checked the R-L balance everywhere. Everything I capture (from a VHS) has only left diminished sound. I suspect the AC97 drivers (generic Microsoft). Do you have an idea what could be wrong with my PC?

I have AM957G motherboard from PC Chips which has an onboard audio card running AC'97 Audio Codecs. I have it set for 5.1 surrond and untill tonight it ran smooth. It now has no sound out of the front left channel and acts as if it lost amp power to that side. The rest of the speakers function fine. I replaced both the LF speaker and then the whole set with a set that is known to be good. I tried to remove the driver and reinstall with no sucess, channel still gone. Lost and confused. Any ideas???

A:Lost sound in my left channel tonight

Might just be a hardware failure. Unless you need fancy sound there are many cheap decent sound cards that should be as good or better than what you have. Read the customer comments.

A:5.1 Channel Audio - Sound only from Front Left and Right Speakers

I assume you are using something like this,

or similar cables to connect from the 6 RCA input jacks on the system to the 3 mini jacks on the computer (one each for the front left/right, sub/center and rear left/right).

Also is the audio you are trying to play stereo or 5.1? If it is only stereo then it requires using speaker fill to get sound from all speakers.

This is my new motherboard, which I'm installing on the the moment I have a crappy SoundBlaster 128 (stereo) sound card.

Should I stick with that, or should I use the onboard sound [is it dolby 5.1? ]? If so, what speakers should I get? (under Ģ70 please)

Is it worth using the onboard sound or should I save for an Audigy 2?

BTW - will one reduce system performance more than the other?


A:On Board 6 channel sound - Asus A7V333

Well, I just got the A7V8X, and are using the onboard sound...

I found that I can't really tell much of a difference between it, and my old SB Live!...

And all my old problems with Creative cards and Via chipsets are gone
No longer cracking in sound when copying files, no more slow file copying, no more system crashes...

So in short, use it instead of your 128... I'm not quite sure when it comes to Audigy... The Q is, how good are your speakers? If they are of a premium quality, you might get a bit better sound with the Audigy, but if you're just using a set of OK speakers...

So it's really weird, since Realtek just says that not getting the drivers from the manufacturer will only cause me to loose the special tools and gadgets from the manufacturer (Asus here), but that's not a problem, I just want to upgrade the drivers.Click to expand...

Just use the ASUS ones, its very unlikely that there have been any updates for years.

Would it just clock the ram down and if so would there be a huge performance hit?

They would work in a single channel motherboard, and it wouldn't effect the speed of the actual RAM however it would effect the overall speed because the memory wouldn't be able to send data back and forth as fast as it could in Dual-channel motherboards.

I've been having a rather irritating problem with my NVIDIA graphics card. Ever since I installed the card, it has been outputting sound through the card instead of through my onboard audio. Since I do not want to purchase an HDMI to DVI cable to play sound through my monitor, I was wondering how to redirect the audio to play through my motherboard so I can hear sound again. I have tried resetting BIOS settings, reinstalling all drivers for sound card, motherboard, and gpu, and I have poked around 100's of forums, and tried everything. I'm even considering buying a different brand of card because this stupid thing has created so many problems.

A:How do I output sound through my ASUS Motherboard?

Right click on the speaker icon in the taskbar. Select playback devices and see if you have an option other than HDMI. I have 4 HDMI ports in addition to Speakers and "Speakers" is the default device on my machine.

A:No Sound: Realtek Asus Motherboard Win7 64bit

I was just told to try a repair install. Looking at the repair install info here I was told by the poster NOT to do this if a recovery did not work.
As I said I am so confident that something somewhere was deleted, removed, blocked, broke or corrupted with my internal software. This is not a hardware issue.

What are the important audio files that I should make sure still exist on my computer? In order for computers to play any audio files what .dll, .exe, .com files must exist in windows or on my computer? I want to verify they are there.

While I have been trouble shooting my issue I found this post:

My Avast! program recognized Audiodg.exe as a malicious file and removed it. Since then, I have not been able to get sound on my system.
I have looked for a place to download and restore the Audiodg.exe file, but am unable to find it anywhere.
In my sound playback devices, when I try to 'test' my sound, I get an error "failed to play test tone". My audio drivers are all up to date."

This problem seems similar to mine as I had that Avast program and also recently found spyware. Is this something I should investigate - my computer deleting important audio files, these files becoming corrupt or accidental deletion of such files by me? If so which ones should I look for?

Even if I checked your solution I will check it again if you think I should. Even if you think it is not worth a mention - mention it!

Here's the problem, I'm building my new PC as we speak and I bought this mammoth cpu cooler (which while I knew it would be big I didn't read any reviews stating it covers a memory slot) which fully covers up my first ram slot and the heat spreader is too tall on the memory to try and weasel it in there. The Gigabyte's instructions tell me that there are two "dual channels" one using 1 and 3 and the other using 2 and 4. I installed the RAM into 2 and 4 because there is no other way for it to work.

Hi Tech Guys (and Gals)

I'm hoping my problem is a simple one. The left channel on my speakers isn't working properly. It's very low. When I slide the balance to the left speaker, I can hear it, but it's very muffled. This happens if I use either Winamp or Media Player. I recently got some windows updates, but I can't say for sure that's when the problem started. I tried unplugging and reinserting the wiring to no avail. I have a simple setup: two desktop speakers and a sub woofer. It has always worked fine, but in the last couple days, it hasn't. Any ideas?

I am developing an application which requires me to mute left/right individually while listening to continuous audio output via headphone/earphone. I have tried the following options in windows 7, 8,8.1,10 laptops,

- Adjusting the balance levels in playback device settings - My playback device is speaker, i tried adjusting the levels by keeping Left channel to zero and listening to right, i can still hear some sound in my left earphone. (try this with some continuous music)

- Disabling all enhancements, updating audio driver, used a TRS earphone instead of TRRS - Still hearing some sound.

- Tried with apps like VLC Player, Volumouse (Nirsoft), Volume2 etc. - None of them work.

-Downgraded my audio driver to older vista version - Reverts back to new one

Is there any means to actually do this or is it a windows restriction which does not allow you to do this.

A:Low Left Channel Audio

Try turning the speaker wire, assuming it is a 3.5 jack. Also, try pushing the cable in a bit, not were the metal bit goes in, but where the wire goes to the plastic bit, which then goes to the metal bit. You may just have to adjust the balance.

A:Recording comes into LEFT channel only

I think you already checked your recording balances from the computers mixer (double click the speaker icon down left).
So you hear everything in mono, when you play records? Try to switch left and right, do you hear it right channel this time. Easy way to know if problem is the cable.

I want to delay the only left channel by a few milliseconds.

My speaker setup requires me to put the right speaker about 1.5m further than the left speaker is. This way, the sound coming from the left speaker reaches the ear faster than sound from right one. This causes me great woes and headache.

If I delay the left signal, then the sound coming from the left speaker will arrive exactly when the sound from the right speaker reaches my ear.

How do I approach this?

A:Can I delay the left or right channel by a few milliseconds?

Your estimation of milliseconds is correct. The speed of sound is 343 m/s, so 1.5 m would be 4 milliseconds of delay. I'm surprised your ear/brain can detect 4ms. Sometimes, when a movie I am watching has out of sync sound I alter the sync (on VLC player) in 50 ms quanta. I find I can't see any lipsync difference below 100ms, whilst > 250ms 'out' is unwatchable, for me anyway. That said, I've read that a skilled cinema lipsync expert can make adjustments of fractions one frame (about 40ms). I know this is a different scenario to what you are describing, but I find your perception of 4ms interesting.

What about wall reflections - are you listening to your hifi in an anechoic chamber ?

The subject of imperceptible audio differences usually triggers jokes about Russ Andrews, and their $1000 phono leads, mains cables etc.

Just bought a new set of desktop speakers.

The volume and tone controls are on the right-side speaker.

As I use my mouse, right handed, and the volume control more or less together for some work, this is a bit of a pain.

I can, of course, just move the speakers, but my son objects; for some videos and games, I guess it is important to have right-right, and left-left.

I have the Creative/Soundblaster audio setup.

If I do interchange the speakers to the way I like, is there any option, anywhere,
where I can have the left channel sound now going to the right speaker, and the right channel sound going to the left speaker ?

Creative, and the MS Audio options doesn't seem to have a way.
I don't want to re-wire any plugs.

Any simple way of accomplishing this ?

Creative, and the MS Audio options doesn't seem to have a way.
I don't want to re-wire any plugs.

Any simple way of accomplishing this ?


I know exactly what you mean. On my media PC the on board audio was backwards so I reversed the connections so it sounded correct. I then put in a Audigity 2 and that was wired correctly.
The only suggestion I have is to check out an electronics store or Amazon for a couple of cables so you can reverse the wiring.
and then one of these if your speaker system has a socket on it, if not search for a cable with a socket on it.

HelloI am trying to record a CD of me playing my digital piano for my Grandparents for Christmas I m using Audacity I need to get this working ASAP I m experiencing two problems I m using Windows bit OSI m sure I ve used Line-In in the past but I Recording left - channel buzzing, only am only getting the left channel to work I know it s NOT audacity that s the problem I have it set to record stereo It doesn t matter what program I use I still get mono When I hit a key on my piano only sound comes from the left speaker on my computer If I plug into the microphone jack I get sound out of both speakers What Recording - buzzing, left channel only s going on So I would use the mic jack BUT When I plug it in the mic jack everything sounds fine Piano sound coming from both speakers I go to record in Audacity and it records nothing Only way it will record is if I turn on analog recording gain in my soundcard settings There Recording - buzzing, left channel only s a catch - when I turn on rec gain I get a loud buzzing sound So I CAN T record with either one Both of them get the buzz when I turn on gain but Audacity won t record without gain Line-in will only record left speaker PLEASE HELP ME I ve tried using both the line-out and mic jacks on my piano Makes no difference Thanks in advance for any help Awaiting replies

A:Recording - buzzing, left channel only

Without any details of what connectors and cable type you're using, my first guesses would be either the cable has a mono 3.5mm plug at the computer end instead of a stereo one;or if it definitely is stereo like above, the right channel cable has a break or the computer line in socket has a faulty right channel contact. For the buzzing on the mic input (which will always give poorer quality anyway), is the cable a fully shielded audio cable? For example, if you've adapted a headphone cable, it might just be unshielded wires, which will pick up mains hum.

Hi there, just upgraded to Windows 7.
My front sound jack works, but when I connect my speakers to the on-board sound card I only get the left channel. So I figure it's the drivers.
Well, Windows says my audio drivers are up to date, so I manually downloaded the W7 32-bit drivers from Realtek. When I try to update the drivers, telling windows to use this folder, it still says the latest drivers are installed. I resorted to running setup.exe in the driver folder and that seemed to be going alright until:
Windows can't verify the publisher of this driver software
<press Install this driver software anyway>
installation hangs at about 90% and the security message continually pops up.

what do?

A:W7 refuses to install AC'97 - only left channel audio

Right click on the setup exe and select "run as administrator"

Hey guys I seem to be having an issue with my onboard sound card It's a VIA Audio Analog Channel with Quiet Left Very card built into the Asus M A TD-M EVO motherboard It seems to be that my left channel is roughly of the volume of the right even at The channel works because I can hear Left Channel Very Quiet with Analog Audio it but it's not nearly as loud as the right I have checked the levels in the VIA control panel and everything is fine and dandy I have this issue with my speakers hooked up to the back of the PC via mm as well as my headphones hooked up to the front of my case via mm I had this issue once before but I was using my USB headset mostly at that time which by the way works just fine and one day I discovered it worked I don't know what I did or if I did anything The drivers are currently Left Channel Very Quiet with Analog Audio up to date Any ideas Specs are current

A:Left Channel Very Quiet with Analog Audio

You've essentially limited down the potential causes to a chip problem, and a software issue. Try disabling or uninstalling the VIA control program, and then uninstalling your sound drivers in Device Manager. Reboot, and Windows should automatically install some drivers of its own.

If that doesn't work, I'd suspect the chip itself is bad. Before spending money on a new card, though, it may be worth it to test another OS. Make a live Ubuntu CD, and see if the problem is there.

Download | Ubuntu

If the problem exists there, purchase a new sound card.

I have an ASUS P5B mobo and Im using the onboard audio jack to connect me GX Gaming audio system. It was working well until I unplugged it for a party. When I returned I noticed a constant light clicking in the Left channel both in my speaker system and when I plugged in my own headphones.

The sound continues throughout the booting process and in bios and only turns off briefly during the end of a reboot sequence. It does not override any audio but does maintain the clicking in the background.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

A:Left Channel in Audio Give Constant Clicking

Welcome to the Windows 7 forum. We'll try to help.

Is the clicking ONLY with the GX Gaming audio system, whatever that is, connected?

A:Windows system volume only controls left channel

Try the Windows uninstall/reinstall. Go to the Device Manger, in the Sound section RIGHT click on the entry for the Xonar to highlight it and then LEFT click on "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This will correct any Windows corruptions with the sound card.

I will try my best not to confuse you.

On my laptop (hp-dv7) the audio on my headphones only work on the right channel. However, this surprisingly corrects its self when playing Starcraft 2, full stereo on both ears. This problem returns when I play DeusEx or use computer regularly, right channel only.

I did re-install my driver for audio, if those would ask. I also tried another pair of headphones, same thing.

The audio from the laptop, the main speakers work as they should.

I cant seem to find this particular problem online.

Anyone know what is going on?

Hi Guys
Just ordered the above mobo and was reading some reviews about it, every comment said what a great board it was apart from the noisey chipset fan.
One comment even recommend ordering a new fan as a spare because it will fail.
My question is does anyone know if Asus has corrected this problem or will I just have to order a spare?
As it has not been deliverd yet I was thinking of changing it for the SLI version, which I did not really need as I am not into gaming.
Any views or comments appreciated.

It was fine one minute, he was gaming away, and then he wandered off for a coffee, came back and it was shut down. Upon starting, he got the error.

Hi all, Well I got a problem that is something of a mystery for me. I bought this motherboard at a going out of business sale. It was boxed and sealed. I mounted it and the green power light lit; but no fans turned. No video, nothing! The processor or ram could have been the problem so I changed them... same thing! I changed the power supply... same thing. So call Asus tech support and they were about as computer useful as a bag full of roofing hammers. Oh and my warranty expired 30 days ago.. hurray for me! SO I bought a new Bios chip for it, Asus's Idea not mine, and installed the thing... same result! So I could use some help on getting this MOBO running. Please and Thank you! joan

I can hear a sound from the fan on my motherboard. I thought it was the CPU HS fan, but now Iam not so sure. There is a fan located right below, plugged in to the PWR_FAN connector. It's just this small fan with a faceplate. It is hard to tell, but I am quite sure it is this fan. It has been going on for about 4 days. First for a few minutes on startup, now almost constant. My motherboard is an Asus A8V-E Deluxe. Should I be worried? If it needs replacing, will it be difficult , I see it has a tiny little heatsink, does it need thermal paste?

I'd suspect a faulty audio chipset. The hardware being recognized and the drivers installing aren't an indication that the hardware is actually functional.

With that being said, try a different version of the RealTek drivers. Try using the latest version available from Asus. If those don't work, try the latest version directly from RealTek.

Hi guys,

If I replace the two 512mb sticks am I better off getting a matched pair of sticks for dual channel. A matched pair in most stores seems to be more expensive than just buying two sticks of the same type. What is the difference? My motherboard does support dual by the way.
I think when I bought the two 1GB sticks I just bought 2 of the same make in pc world, but not a matching pair.

Single Channel

When you put both of your memories in the blue slots, you effectively turned the system into single channel mode. To enable dual channel, you must place one stick on the blue slot and one in the black one.

Try this solution: Pull out one of the existing 512 MB stick from the blue slot and put it in the black slot. And put the new stick in the blue slot. I have the exact same processor and mobo as you, but I only have two 512 MB sticks so far. And one of them is in the blue slot, the other one is in the black. My BIOS reports dual channel memory!

Hi all Long time I just went behind my wife s back and bought a few upgrades for the computer Now I have to show their worth or else lol I bought a new hard disc The WD caviar Black TB I bought a left sound speaker, X-fi rear Titanium. Solved: No from second used GTX so I could finally visit SLI land And I bought a sound card My first ever I always have cheaped out in the past on sound going with onboard Solved: No sound from rear left speaker, X-fi Titanium. sound So I bought a nice new Soundblaster X-FI Titanium I installed everything at once Did a new install of windows and the day and a half of updating of the software Jeez that sucked I finally have everything working except this rear speaker thing Setting up the Mic was a bugger too but I think I have that done Here is the issue When I do a channel test you can hear the test signal from all the channles fine but when you get to the rear left it comes out of the subwoofer very faintly I have read tons of posts from angry folks who are having similar probs with this Some say its the cables even though they worked fine on onboard sound Some say I have to disable the onboard sound in the mixer etc I have come here to see if any of you fine folks have a solution that works Sorry for the long post Thanks for taking the time Ps I am running Vista service pack speakers are the Z using the channel direct stereo jacks I was thinking of going to toslink to see if that helps Cheers Corey nbsp

A:Solved: No sound from rear left speaker, X-fi Titanium.

Okay. First let me apologize to the 62 people who read my post. Sorry, I am an idiot.
I thought I had checked and rechecked everything before posting, but I missed a loose wire where my rear speaker wires connect to the wall plate where they go in wall up to the location on my back wall.....I reconnected the wire, and bam. It works great.
I was also able to figure out how to get my pc to output digital audio through the card to my z5500 speakers...
You have to start the Creative audio service. To get to it, I had to type something into the search bar just above the start button. Of course stupid me, I did not write down what it was....
But if you read this post, its a good place to look....if you are having probs with your digital output.

My questions are:

1. If I get a new motherboard and would like to keep my data on my hard drive without having to make back-ups and reformatting/reinstalling the OS, how would I do that?
2. For Dual Channel memory, you have to put the memory on the same color memory slot, correct? And once you do that, is it listed as dual channel memory, or is there something in the BIOS or windows that I have to configure to enable dual-channel?

You cannot use 3 rams sticks and still get the advantages of dual channel. However you can use 4 sticks, with most motherboards and they will operate in dual channel.

Hi all i have a question regarding installing 3rd RAM on a dual channel motherboard. I have already installed and running a dual channel kit by Kingston HyperX 1866 4GB x2. If I install another module of same speed will it unstable the performance? Or crash apps as it wont be running on dual channel mode.

A:Installing 3rd RAM on Dual Channel Motherboard

If you look at the motherboard manual, there may still be a way to run in dual channel with only 3 sticks, if it`s possible the MB manual will show you which slots to populate.

Only you will know for sure if performance is slower.

But, why not just wait and fill all 4 slots ?

I have recently got some dj software but cannot get separate sounds through my headphones and speakers. any ideas? N.B i am no computer wizz!

A:How do i get 2 channel sound to have different sound thru headphones & speakers?

Hi and welcome to the forum.

There isn't an easy way of doing this and I'm not sure it's even possible; getting the speakers and the headphones to work at the same time is a big enough of a challenge!

How exactly are your speakers and headphones plugged in? One in front audio out and one in back audio out...?

I have a ASUS P5A MB with built in sound. The built in sound is ES1938 PCI Audio Driver. I have no sound and have exhausted all other possibilities. I am thinking about getting a new driver but I'm not sure these built in things have drivers.
Also can I put in a separate sound card and bypass the built in thing?

I have an Asus TV Tuner FM 7135 PCI card installed, when I tried to view TV, I could not recieve sound. After looking around, I was able to fix it by connecting the TV Tuner to my motherboard sound ( Asus A8V-E Deluxe). Now I can hear sound fine, but when I record any show, there is no sound. I think I need to connect the TV Tuner to the Line In from the back of the tower in order to do this, this is where I need help please, if someone wouldn't mind. I am in all new territory with this new PC, and have soooo much to learn! Can someone please tell me how I would do this? I do not know the specific cables I need to do this, as there is no audio ports coming from the TV Tuner card itself. Thank you very much.

I have an Asus X56TA laptop. It worked like a charm until yesterday, when suddenly, without any warnings, my left hinge just broke off when I was closing the screen.

It seems that the hinge just got _completely_ stuck. Really, like it was made of solid concrete. So when the screen worked as a lever, it easily broke off.

To illustrate my problem, here are some pictures:

Anyone has any tips what to do with this? Is there any chance of making the hinge work again? If yes, I thought of using some very powerful glue to "repair" the hinge. The plastic cover is 100% OK, so I only need some usability

I also found a brand new hinge for my notebook model on eBay. Is it possible to remove the broken hinge and install the new one?

Thanks in advance for all the tips.

I searched for a similar thread and didn't find anything, so please don't hate me if this has already been answered. I just got 5.1 speakers as a present, and since my motherboard has 5.1 support, but only 3 sockets at the back, I was wondering how to set it up to give me 5.1 sound? I'm planning on buying a sound card eventually, but for now I'd like to be able to get it to work on just this. I'm guessing it has something to do with the front sound sockets, but before i start mucking about with things, I'd appreciate any input you guys might have to offer.

A:sound channel??????

What was the program that you installed and what type of sound card do you have installed?

Normally, if a program requires a "sound channel", it means that the program was not able to access the sound card's resources to either play a sound or reserve itself to play sounds.

Hope this is a start.
