Long story short:



Every installation of Windows i do is swapping stereo channels L/R to R/L ONLY when running 3D applications.

This is DEFINATELY a software/windows issue because windows sound test in sound panel or youtube stereo channel test is correct (channels arent swapped).

Once i run 3D app (type of app doesnt matter, happens on every app) OS is instantly swapping audio channels.



Main facts below to prevent non-focused answers:



1. Happens on every type of hardware, different motherboards, different CPU's/GPU's.

2. Happens on every type of headset

3. Happens on ONBOARD audio and PCIe card

4. Happens on every version of drivers for onboard audio/PCIe card

5. Happens on every windows version starting from 7 to 11





Please do not post answers like:

1. run troubleshoot

2. do a sfc scannow or chkdsk

3. reinstall windows

4. install different drivers

5. try different headset

6. try to mess with sound options in control panel - none of this tweaking eg. exclusive mode/windows spatial sound etc. is solving the problem



Done all of these! This happens on every windows install, even fresh one.

Are you using a desktop or laptop? What speakers are you using? If it's a desktop have you remapped any input and output using Realtek? Have you tried S/PDIF if your motherboard has it on the rear IO?
