Having problems with your Gateway GMAX 5100 Computer Speakers ?

One speaker not working and Scratchy Audio

\015 Just recently I noticed that my front right speaker no longer produces sound. And just a few days ago I started hearing scratchy audio coming from the speakers as well. About two years ago I upgraded my graphics card and audio card and have had no problems with anything until now. I have run system analysis and tests on both the audio card and the speakers and everything comes back normal. During the speaker test when the computer cycles to the front right speaker, sound actually comes out of the front left one. If I re-configure the speakers so it thinks the front right is the front left and vice-versa then I don't get sound out of my front left one but all the others work as usual.\015

I have a set of speakers: 2 speakers and one subwoofer. The problem I am encountering is when I plug in my ipod to the system, only the right one works. The left is completely silent. However, one time I was able to get both of them to work when I twisted the chord that is connected to the Ipod. But that only worked once. Now, only the sub and right speaker work. What is the problem and what do I need to do to fix it?

For about one week, when I try to listen to audio, no sound comes out of the laptop speakers so I tried external speakers but that did not work. I restored my system to a point well before the sound quit working but that did not help. Whe I go to control panel and look at sound/audio devices it says "no audio device". When I go to system in control panel and look at devices, it shows me a lot of stuff associated with sound and says they are all operating properly. Help!
