Hi heckler;
This might just be a bad connection somewhere. Possibly inside the case. Or it could just be a bad speaker wire. The hardware people should be on shortly so hang on.

What operating system are you running and what Computer brand/model do you have?

Do you have a built-in audio card or an add-in like Sound Blaster

Do you have a built-in video card or and add-in like Nvidia or ATI, if so what model?

The reason I ask is that there are some known issues with some mixes of hardware.

Can you elaborate on the make and model of your pc Heckler, I've googled that make and returned no results.
If you are definitely using a stereo jack plug, ie 2 black bands around the plug, then either the plug could be damaged or you have mono sound only.

We really need to know the exact model of that pc mate.

By the way, when you say "Bitza" you don't mean something that's just obscurely thrown together do you?

Also make sure the volume is up for the left channel:

Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices>Speaker Volume.

sorry guys, its a refurbished unit. There is no info on the case, however, the main board says "Gigabyte, GA-7vm400m" if thats any help. The audio out port is a sealed "box" so i cant directly see if there is a fault in there.have also been through the sound diagnostic/set up and all is ok with that.
