I have done all the troubleshooting that realtek has to offer and still only one speaker (right) is working. It is the Realtek high definition audio '97 card that is part of the motherboard. Please Help!

Do you have any headphones you can plug in to see if its the card or the speaker?

Or, do you have 2 separate speakers and can you switch them around left to right instead ?

I had the same problem once. The solution was to use connections for analog instead of for digital output. This might be something you want to check into. Your speaker manual should give the information regarding each one and how to connect them.

I can connect the speakers in different order (left speaker to right input and vice versa) so I know it is not a problem with the speakers. I have just a basic 2 speaker with sub-woofer setup and it only puts out sound from one front speaker. Nothing from the left speaker and sub-woofer. I will try to connect it analog style. I'll post back if it works.

I checked the audio manager and it is setup for analog connections. My speakers are connected with a single cable into the green color coded "line out" jack on the motherboard, not the front jacks. Perhaps the cable is bad and there is something not making a connection?
