Quick way is to swap over the speaker connections, or the speakers. Could be that that is the problem anyway.

the cables arent long enough for me to have the right speaker on teh rightside and the left on the left. As it is now it only just reaches.

and always make yourself a plug and rewire it to reverse the channels..
check your audio driver
some allows you to do so

Only if your software allows it. XP as far as I know will not, so poodoo there.

Physically moving them is probably the simplest way of doing things though.

Hi

Need more info..How long is the cable between the left and right speaker ?
How far away is the CPU ? How big is your monitor ? Have you tried placing them on top of the Monitor (Blutack) Give us some more detail.

unless your playing DVDs or games does it matter .

The cable between the two speakers is about 1m, cable from the rightspeaker to my computer is 1m with some slight slack in the cable.
i have a 17" CRT between the 2 speakers.
I play games quite often, I consider myself a gamer even though alot of the time i spend on my computer involves me reading wikipedia.

How far away is the CPU from the monitor ? Surely you can run the cable along the front of the monitor (Tuck it underneath)

Can you post a photo of your set up, so we can see what the problem is.
I re-read your posts and you are saying that the right speaker just reaches
the right side of the monitor ? You could buy a extension cable from DSE
to make the cable longer from the CPU to the monitor. You may need to put the speakers along the front of the monitor L-------R it may not go on either
side.


confused.

the left speaker just reaches the right side, and the right speaker is attached to the left speaker.
the left speaker has no chance of reaching the left side.

Why can't you swap the speakers around, seems simple to me. Also the lead
fom the CPU won't have to travel too far. It dosen't matter if the speakers are set back a bit as long as you have them apart.

sigh.......on PF1 this type of terminology shouldn't be happening

How far away is the CPU.........here is a cpu:

here is a computer:

theres IS a considerable difference....and I get a little fussy about people perpetuating incorrect terminology. The computing world largely REQUIRES EXACT terminology or else confusion reigns

if i tried to do that, the speaker would be roughly inside the monitor.

When I look at your photo I see a speaker on each side of your 17" monitor.
You are saying the left speaker is on the right side and the left is on the right.
Then please tell me in detail why you can't move the left to the left and the right to the right. It can't be the cable length between the speakers can it?

or are we talking about something totally different.

Mirddes

the length of the cable from the speaker to my computer is too short to allow for me to place it on the left side of the monitor, it would have to go from my computer to the left side then back to the right side.
And yes, currently the left is on the right and the right is on the left.
the distance of the cable between the 2 speakers is more than ample.

I quess that the sound is plugged into the computer on the right. if so a visit to dick smith would be in order to get an extension lead for it.

Lay the speakers on their sides, one shelf lower down and the cords may be long enough ?

Mirddes

works great, but considering how much crap i have on my desk, i can see them falling off sometime soon
