    How do I run all my sound through just my left speaker


    Ive come to the conclusion ive blown my right speaker as it is hardout crackling and nothing ive done changes it. I was wondering how can I send all my sound to the left speaker. I tried changing the levels but all that does is turn off the right speaker i dont get the sounds that should be going to the right speaker coming through the left which is what i want to do. Is there a way to do this please help.

    You can configure through the sound manager application of your system. For instance, if your system uses a Realtek HD Audio, you can configure the speaker using Realtek HD Audio Manager.

    Right, look for a slidebar that is used to balance the sound between left and right.

    I don't think you can set Realtek control panel to give a mono output (i.e. left + right) through the left channel only. The cheapest alternative is probably to pick up a replacement speaker, or get a replacement driver (bare speaker, not software) to replace the blown unit in the right speaker enclosure.

    Kinda hard to do on a Notebook/Laptop.

    Unless there is a option to set the audio to mono I don't think they can do what they want. They could try external speakers to see if it is the speaker in the laptop.
