Okay so ive listened on some music on windows media player, when i didnt ment to i unplugged the headphones from the pc. When i plugged it back i had to restart the song, but when i did that the sound, overall sound is weird ! Like... cant describe it but i can hear the song, but like only the electrical guitarr but not the singing, and all the other stuff are weird like, damn! Ive tryied to play some games, for an example Battlefield2, it was like, when i was sitting in a heli i heard everything but the sounds that comes from the heli. But when i turned left or right in the cockpit i heard the engine sounds, if i turned my head left in-game i heard the engine on left side, same if i turned on the right side.
Tried to fix it.....
went on the "Volume" on the bottom right corner.
r-click it and then Sounds, then playback and my headphones "speakers"
2x left-click on the "speakers" ( my headphones ) then levels and then balance ..
now the intressing part, when i did "L" ( left side ) to 100 and "R" to 0, i heard everything right ! same as i did R to max and L to 0 it worked exellent, but i realised that the surround will be dead, because if i have R or L i only hear the right or left side on both sides of my headphones. If i have em <U>on same level</U> ´( best surround ) left and right on 100 together, the sound goes weird again. Its same thing on the low lvls,<U> together</U> ( best surround ) and the sound fails and goes weird again.
please help me :> ask me for more info, and where i can get the info you need"
- sorry for my bad english.</SPAN> </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
Not aware of any way you can flip the right-left audio channels unless you have a multi-channel audio setting app or panel and it allows you to do that. If that's the case, you would have to check the different sound settings apps and panels to see what you have set.
As for the sound being "weird", that's either the drivers or some game setting that conflicts with the drivers.
There are thousands of drivers, so we can't begin to provide or diagnose them ourselves. You can check Device Manager for your audio drivers and see if Vista can update the drivers for you. If you have an add-on sound card, you can go to the manufacturer's site and see if they have updated drivers.
As to the game settings, every game is different. Your best bet would be to see if the game supplier has a support forum, and if so, check that to see what other folks have posted about sound problems and fixes.
