A friend with a 486dx4-100, running win95 has a sound problem he's been unable to figure out. All windows sounds come through both his left and right speakers but anything from his cd-rom (music cds, etc) only come through on the left channel.
We checked the connections and volume control, but no luck. What else should we look for?

There's a cable connecting your CD-Rom directly to the sound card, you'll need to open up the case and verify if the cable is damaged, or dirty socket.  Replace the cable if cleaning doesn't help.
