Sound Equalization Problems

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all; I'm fairly new to dealing with computer sound issues, so forgive my nubishness.

Recently I've noticed an issue with the sound equality imbalance; in particular, the left channel louder than the right. However, this only occurs when I adjust my Speaker volume in Realtek HD Manager to values between multiples of ten. I noticed this when I switched my Realtek volume to 70 from 80 - the audio would become very imbalanced to the left around 77, and slowly balance out on my way back down to 70. I'm using the built-in soundcard for my Gigabyte P55-UD3 (http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...px?pid=3164#sp). The sound channel slider is completely balanced at 0 between L and R. Anyone have any idea what might be causing this?

Thanks!

maybe your speakers are not connected well
update the driver from their website (Gigabyte's)
maybe the connectors to your speakers/jack/wires are broken
try manually balancing it as a last resort

My bad; I forgot to add that I first noticed this using headphones, then tested with my speakers - both have the same issue, proving that it's software related.

Gonna install the latest drivers now, hopefully that'll help.

Update: Doesn't seem to have made a difference :/ Thanks for the suggestion though; anyone else have any ideas?

well, if changing driver and checking cables didn't bring any result... maybe the soundcard itself is faulty

did you try contacting Gigabyte?

well i had an iPod that used to do that and it got so bad that the right channel wouldnt even play. It did this with everything i connected to except when it was channeled through the thirty pin connector (the charging and syncing port) I figured out that there was a broken piece in the jack so it didnt make contact with the connector's right channel section.

To sum up and relate this to your problem: Maybe the jack your plugging into is broken. My best guess is the contact is only slightly making contact with you connectors. SO if you are connecting through the case it might be a case problem, not a motherboard problem.

BUT i would still contact gigabyte first and see if they have a fix for it

Best Wishes To You
