I have a lenovo y50p and the speakers were working great out of both speakers, until, I plugged in a USB headset device that only has one headphone on the right side. After I unplugged the headset, only the right speaker will work now and nothing I have tried has helped. I tried googling it, but all I was getting was the 'right click sound icon->playback devices->right click speakers->properties->levels->balance' solution which does nothing for me because it says the speakers ARE balanced. I just want my left speaker back.

 

Also, since my left speaker disappeared, my overall volume have gone way down and audio is very muffled sounding.

Welcome,

Are your audio drivers up to date? If so you might try doing a control panel uninstall, reboot and reinstall.

Keep us posted

Hello,

I think uninstalled the sound drivers and rebooted and the sound now works with both speakers. However, I didn't reinstall the sound driver after rebooting, and it is working fine so I'm not sure if I actually unistalled it.

Windows installs generic drivers when there isn't a proprietary one.

In thoery, you'd have better sound or more control by having the specific driver/program, but if it sounds good to you and you'd prefer to not mess with it, leaving it as is would be OK.

If you want the correct drivers, you may find them on your computer and if not, you can download them from Lenovo support.


All is well in Paradise.

And I say "If it isn't broken, don't fix it!"
