hey guys, about a month ago for seemingly no reason the sound in my left earbud on my macbook died. at first i thought it was my earbuds, they are getting a little old, but sound comes through the left bud perfectly fine on my iphone.
so then i tried to reinstall 10.6.4 combo update on my macbook. still nothing. so i tried an archive and install. still no audio in my left ear bud.
fearing hardware damage i booted over to my windows and ubuntu partition, both play sound perfectly out of both ear buds.
so i've tried an archive and install, reinstall combo update, booting to another os on the same hardware and my earbuds in another device.
can anyone think of anything else to try? i'd really really rather not reinstall if i don't have to. i've had enough of that this year...
