okay music and everything plays fine, other than over a network but thats a different thread. but ive just noticed that when i max the volume on my laptop the sound come out of one speaker only (left one) then come out of both about 2 seconds later. not a major problem but any reason for this happening?

Your speakers may be shorting out. Or a cable is loose. Have you tried cleaning in there?

Are you dual-boot? Does it happen in Windows as well?

not dual booting, and it never did in windows, switched to ubuntu about a month ago.

it doesnt affect my day to day use but i was wondering if it could mean something more serious

Use a can of air and blow it in the vents. Careful not to make the fans spin up to fast!
