Hey all, it's been a while since I've visited this forum, but I'm back for more computer related issues.
Motherboard: msi 785gm e51
The sound is integrated. I was suspecting that since two speakers have never worked properly with this computer, that the integrated sound card was borked. This didn't bother me and I dealt with having one speaker.
Fast forward to today, when I acquire two eighteen inch sub-woofers and a number of smaller surround sound speakers. Perfect time to hook everything up and enjoy it, right? No not really. I hook everything up properly to my receiver (which I've had work fine with six speakers when the sound is from CD player to receiver), and alas, only one speaker works again. So yeah, it's probably my sound card that's messed up and I need a new one.
So I grab my laptop, hook the receiver up to it, and suddenly sound is coming from one speaker, again. But this time it's the left speaker that has sound, not the right.
This has me utterly confused. I can't figure out what's wrong. Hooked up to my desktop, only the right from speaker works. Hooked up to a laptop, only the front left speaker works. I'm really new to this sort of stuff, but I really don't know what's wrong. What should I do? I'll try to provide as much information as possible.
TLDR: Only one speaker works, out of seven. Speakers all work fine when receiver is not hooked up to the computer but to a CD player. Sound switches from speaker to speaker when switching computers.
