Hi! :)

My headphones were working perfectly. I accidentally unplugged them. I plugged them in again. Now the instruments in the music is loud but the singing's quiet and sounds like the singing's being done in water. All I could find are instructions to sort out the enhancements, but I don't have an enhancements tab. I have 'General', 'Levels', 'Advanced' and 'Spatial sound'. Please help.

Have you tried the simplest of solutions:  unplug and replug your headset (or speaker) jack?   That, or rotate it once it's been inserted?

 

What you describe is very common if a contact isn't making great contact.  In fact, if you've made no changes of any other kind that's not only the most likely culprit, but most probably the only one.

Thanks for replying :)
I have tried those. Worked for about a second, then stopped. I'll keep trying it though. :)

Then you very likely either have a wonky jack on your computer or a short in the line between the headphone plug and the headphones.

 

The computer side could be anything from dirt to the jack having developed cracks in the solder where it connects to the motherboard.   Headphones are notorious for developing issues somewhere between where they connect to the computer and where the tiny speakers are that deliver sound.

 

You're now in a situation where detective mode is necessary.  Try the headphones on some other device and see how they work.  Try other headphones or a set of external speakers on the computer and see if they work.  One of the two should likely not work correctly, telling you on which side of the equation the problem lies.

The headphones work on my MP3 Player and my earphones work on my laptop.

I guess I should just do that. It doesn't do any harm. :) Thanks for the help anyways. :)

Desktop?  Plug the head phones into the green jack and not the black jack.  It sounds like you're plugged into the rear speaker jack.
