Vista sound problems

Well for some reason I was missing around and I tried connecting my vista laptop to my tv via the lead I got with my nokia N96!! Werid I know!

Now my sound has gone muffled and it seems be be coming from one side only (left)

However when I plug external speakers in, it is the same, so I dont think I have blown the laptops internal speakers, I just think I need to balance the sound between the left and right again.

They are realtek HD audio, but i do not know how to change it back??

Any help?

Should be an icon in your control panel called Realtek HD Audio or similar.

On the first page at the top right is the balance option.

Try re-installing the audio drivers.

Also change your control panel to classic view (should be an option on the left pane).


How do i re-install the audio drives?

I changed the CP to classic and I still got the same sound options.

The picture below shows I have the realtek icon..but when I double click the orange icon nothing opens?!

From the control panel go to the system icon, then head to hardware/device manager. Find Realtek audio in the list, right-click it, uninstall then reboot your computer.

With any luck Windows will ask you to re-install the device, make sure your online and tell it to look for the drivers online and it should re-install the sound and the software.


I done that and restarted then I got this...

But that didnt make the sound any better..(still muffled)

So i was playing around..and I come across this, which shows the left/ right speaker is balance..

SO DOES THIS MEAN MY LAPTOP SPEAK HAS BLOWN, AND ITS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY OF THE SETTINGS/DRIVERS?
