Y400 - sound only coming out of one headphone

I have a y400 with windows 8.1 and for a good amount of time the sound has only come out of the left ear. I have tried multiple headphones so I know that the headphones are not the problem. Is there a way to redownload the sound driver or are there other solutions?

Re: Y400 - sound only coming out of one headphone

When listening to your headphones, try playing with the port and see if that makes any difference?



If nothing changes then it's unlikely a hardware issue, so try the following:


  1. Go to Device Manager
  2. Go to Sound, video and game controllers
  3. Right click on the audio driver you are trying to use and click update driver software.


Hope this helps!
