My Question or Issue

When I connect my Scarlett 2i4 to my laptop, it will either 1.) only play songs through the left stereo channel in my headphones or; 2.) make no attempt to play songs and skip them (as though it were trying to play a local file that didn't exist) at a fast rate. I have updated all my audio drivers, un/reinstalled Spotify (desktop app and downloader) multiple times, turned off "Enable Hardware Acceleration" and restarted, checked the output device for Spotify in my device properties (and the output device is default), restarted the computer, unplugged and plugged back in the interface. None of these fixes (which I read in other posts) have helped. However, when I unplug the Scarlett interface and connect some bluetooth earbuds, analog earbuds, or just use the laptop's built in speakers, everything works normally.
