Hi! @JeswinRoy, Welcome to HP forums.


I understand that when you connect the Headphone to your PC it plays only one side.


Don't worry I will try to help you out.


Have you Tried a different set of headphones on your PC and does it work?
Have you made sure the connector is plugged all the way into the jack?
Have you Checked the audio balance: it is set to the middle?
Does the audio play normally through the built-in speakers?


However, you the try the steps mentioned below.
Control Panel> Hardware and Sound> manage audio devices>under the playback tab click on the device you're using from the list shown> properties> levels>balance> you should see two sliders for the left and right side of your headset See if any one of them is on muted.





Let me know if this works!

Have a beautiful day ahead! :)
