I'll just note that it's possibly a hardware problem at (or near) the jack, in which case no amount of futzing with the software will help.

Check your connections, are they pushed in all the way? If they are, maybe try and use a pair of headphones or another set of speakers, as you might have blown one of yours.

If you're absolutely sure it's a software thing, look around in your sound settings (in the Windows mixer not the Realtek app, if you're using Windows) to see if it's set to mono.

If you think it's software reloading the drivers might help. Pull up device manager and find the sound device listed there. Right click and uninstall - reload with the latest drivers from the manufacturers website. You might also be able to load up a linux live cd that has sound support to see if it is actually hardware vs just a software issue.
