Go to Control Panel, Multimedia, and choose, ADVANCE properties for PLAYBACK see what type of speakers you have chosen. also, open up the case and see if the Positive and Negative of the cable are correctly connected. RED(Positive,RIGHT SIDE) black(Ground,LEFT SIDE). Go to Control Volume and check the BALANCE is in the MIDDLE ABOVE the CD VOLUME. this is what I think it can be ;p

I have check my balances before and everything is normal.
The speakers are set to desktop stereo speakers.
When I play games or when I listen something on the Web it is in stereo.
Maybe it is my CD-ROM ???

mmmmm, that the problem, it is not being connected properly. How come in one end there is 3 cable and in the other 4? it is supposed to be 4 and 4 in each end. I would suggest to change the cable with another that can connect correctly. there is 2 connectors one is analog and the other one is Digital, make sure it is connected in Analog in the CD to analog. other thing too. the cd you are playing is original or Produce from another CD?
are you using Sound Surround if you are disable it. and see back.
let me know if it works.

I had to change the cable with an other kind of cable that connect directly on the sound card:

The old cable had a white connector with 4 wires (to connect to the sound card) and a black connector with 3 wires (to connect to de CD-ROM).

The new cable has 3 wires on each sides and the connector are black.

That solve the problem.

Thanx

I give you: A+
