  1. Audio only playing out of one ear.


    Hi everyone! Issue is as the title says. Everything was working fine until I connected a second monitor (Technika LCD22-921, I was desperate) and the audio shifted to the right ear only. Using a HDMI cable with that and the audio device immediately defaulted to that. I disabled it and switched back to my headphones which then only played out of the right ear. Using Realtek for sound if that makes any difference.

    I've checked to see if my headphones were broken (b&w p7 wired) which they weren't, tried a different port which also played out of the right ear and tried with different headphones, problem persisted. I've checked my audio levels and drivers which were both fine.

    Thought that maybe there was a tiny surge and the port broke when I connected the TV? At this point I'm on the verge of smashing my pc or crying. To my dismay, turning it on and off again did not work. Please help me.

    Edit 1: using realtek not NVIDIA

  3. No sound while playing audio and video files.

    Hi,

    I appreciate if you could answer to a few questions to narrow down to the issue.

    • Which is the application that you are using to play the files?
    • Did you try the same on a different player?
    • Did you perform any troubleshooting steps?
    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to check if the volume is set low or in mute state in Volume Mixer.

    • Right click on sound icon.
    • Open Volume Mixer check for the application that you are playing the files with and increase the volume and check.
    If the issue still persists, I would suggest you to run “Playing audio” troubleshooter to diagnose and fix the issue.

    Follow these Steps to run Playing Audio Troubleshooter in Windows 10.

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    2. Select Troubleshooting.

    3. Select View all on the top left corner.

    4. Click on Playing audio.
