The fact that only one speaker works sounds like a hardware problem but here are
 things to look at:
1. identify the soundcard from boot messages and lspci or lshal.
2. check the correct module is being loaded in /etc/modprobe.conf . Also
	check lsmod
3. check alsamixer to see if appropriate sound levels are ok. No level
should have MM at base, meaning it is muted. Typing m changes it.
