My audio is all of a sudden (past week or so) gone whacky. One side may pick up or may not, the other takes max volume bar pegged to get a barely audible tinny transmission. This makes for impossible listening, with one side of stereo wide open while the other barely audible. It affects all functions that include audio input. I have three speakers (basebox, left, right) added to the two on my hp monitor that until this, sounded pretty good as a desktop goes. vista, firefox, on a year old system

First thing: Try connecting your speakers to another audio source (Walkman, iPod, whatever) to see if it's the speaker or the computer causing the problem.

yes, the device, a little Yamaha deal with a woofer and two speakers, is working properly with a walkman. Originally, that was its function.

The two factory speakers mounted inside the monitor also work, although awful and weak.

on original set-up of computer, all seemed to work but I am thinking the add-on speaker system drowned out the factory sound.

on original set-up of computer, add-on speakers were jacked to a black input directly below pale green speaker jack for monitor speakers.
