Just bought an MSI dominator 
Amazon.com : MSI Computer GT70 DOMINATOR-2293;9S7-1763A2-2293 17.3-Inch Laptop : Computers & Accessories

I'm very happy with its performance, however I'm having issues balancing the sound in the headphones when I'm playing a game or listening to music. Much of the sound is coming from the left head phone and very little from the right. I have tried other headphones and am having the same problem. I tried to manually change the balance under settings but it doesn't seem to last and doesn't work when I launch steam games. Has anyone had issues like this before? thanks in advance.  If there is no easy fix I have to return it, which is such a hassle.

It may be a hardware problem with the headphone jack. Are these USB headphones? You adusted the balance under the levels tab, correct? I don't know the exact specs of the computer but if you have a Realtek chipset for HD audio go to control panel and select small icons instead of category view. There will be a Realtek HD audio manager where you can adjust balance. If that does not work, I would RMA the computer.
