the above used to work well on all machines..

but lately, it works just fine on the dell laptopp.. but on the dell pc (Inspiron 620 ), the sound is not garbled.. it sound like the sound is getting bounced off randomly.. it is not clear...

but the pc when you connect to speaker, it works fine and perfect...

both laptop and pc are win7.

what about the interface between the pc and headphone could have gone wrong? is it a defect or config issue?

If speakers work fine with the same laptop then it sounds like a defect with the headphones.

it can also be  a bad contact, or connector
did you test with another headphone? if that fails too -  the problem is the connector- or a softwaware setting
right click the speaker in the right hans system tray, and select playback devices
verify the headphone is selected -  you can test by playing some sounds from the sounds tab

Your desktop PC is probably set for something like 3d Sound, or 5.1 or something similar, which you normally set for more than 2 speakers. As headphones only have 2 speakers, make sure your output settings are set to Stereo. Those settings are usually done via the properties or configuration of the checked device in the screenshot nobus posted above.

>>> "...like the sound is getting bounced off randomly..." <<<

It is hard to know exactly what you mean by this, but it does infer that you have some kind of additional echo or reverberation type of effect set for your soundcard, just as rindi has mentioned.

As well as looking at the sound card's "properties", look in your Start Menu for program groups named after your sound card, for example Creative, or Realtek.  Sometimes there is an additional configuration dialog where special effects are set.

In my Control Panel I have a "Realtek Sound Effect Manager" icon that opens a multi-tab dialog with various settings for my sound card including the "Environment", where it allows you to emulate different sized rooms, etc.  This dialog is not shown when going through the normal Windows audio settings.  Some effects are so subtle that you don't notice them through normal desktop speakers and the sound is full and rich, but through headphones the effects can be too obvious and very annoying.
