Description of problem:
On a Thinkpad T61, when using internal speakers only the left one produces any

works normally

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Play a stereo audio file
Actual results:
With internal speakers, only left speaker outputs any sound

Expected results:
Both speakers should produce sound
