    Sound only coming from right ear after windows 10 update


    I am having the issue of sound only coming through the right ear unless the jack stick is plugged half-way in.

    When its plugged half way in the sound is louder in the left ear than the right.




    I recently updated windows 10 and prior to that there was no sound issue. I have tried rolling back the update resulting in the sound working fine.

    I cannot keep rolling back updates in order to keep sound from functioning so i hope to fix this somehow.



    I have attempted to reset my windows to see if it fixed the problem.


    I have attempted to uninstall the device from the device manager and then reinstalling it with a) microsoft default driver and also b) the driver for the motherboard soundcard (realtek).


    I have tried to use the windows sound troubeshooter.


    I have also tried to use two different external USB soundcards.


    None of the above solutions seems to have worked.

    :)

    Hi Char,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concerned. Let me help you to fix the issue.

    To assist you better, I would like to know what is the make and model of the computer?

    Let’s try simple troubleshooting steps and check if this helps in resolving the issue. Follow the below methods.

    Method 1.

    I would suggest you to run sound audio troubleshooter, it will automatically detect the problem and fix it. Follow the below steps.


    • Press Windows key + R and click on
      Control Panel
      .

    • Click on View by: category and click on
      Small icon.

    • Now click on troubleshooting and click on
      Hardware and Sound.

    • Click on Playing Audio and Click on Next button.
    If the issue still persist, try the below method to uninstall/reinstall the sound adapter driver.

    Method 2.

    Step 1.

    I suggest you to uninstall/reinstall the sound adapter driver and check.


    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Device manager
      .

      to expand, right click on the device and click on uninstall.

    Method 3.

    I recommend you to go to the computer manufacturer website and download the latest updated sound adapter driver for Windows 10 and install the same. If the available driver is not for Windows 10 try installing the driver in compatibility
