Ubuntu :: A Loud 'Beep' When I Shut Down

Sep 14, 2010

Every time I shut down my laptop, this loud beeping noise comes out of my computer. It's just one beep, but it's loud and annoying. This has been happening recently, and not from the start of installing Ubuntu to my laptop.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: HP Dv7 Laptop - Loud "BEEP" PC Speaker?

May 19, 2009

I've got a laptop running OpenSuse 11.1/KDE 4.2. I've got sound working just fine (can play music, etc), but whenever there's a system alert (like when I get a new email in Thunderbird), I hear a loud BEEP, as if it's coming from the PC speaker.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Running F11 I586 On Laptop / System Shut Off (not A Normal OS Shut Down, But A Sudden Power Off Without Warning)?

Oct 13, 2009

Offlate I installed F11 i586 on my laptop. F11 shares the hard disk with Vista Home Premium 32-bit. The problem is that when running F11 (or even Ubuntu), my system shut off suddenly(not a normal OS shut down, but a sudden power off without any warning). This could have been a hardware trouble(heating) but it doesn't happen with Vista.
Machine specifications:
Maker: Toshiba
Model: Satellite L305D-S5881
AMD Turion X2 Dual Core Mobile Processor RM-70
3072 MB 800 MHz SDRAM
I don't want to open up my machine unnecessarily, if it isn't a hardware issue.
I am not sure how to verify the bit length of the machine and the OS and does it create a compatibility issue ?
Your advise would be highly appreciated.

Ubuntu :: Gpu Fan Is Very Loud In 10.4?

Aug 10, 2010

I installed ubuntu 10.4 and my graphics card is a ati hd 4650 low profile. The fan on it goes max out when running ubuntu and its kind of annoying. I used the hardware driver to try installing ATI/AMD proprietary graphics driver which solves the fan issue but my pc is a fair bit slower and the screen is slightly blury and not as sharp.

how to check the gpu temp also

Ubuntu :: CPU Fan Loud And System Shutting Down?

Sep 22, 2010

I recently had an OS system crash..WIndows XP. Purchased a new hard drive and installed Ubuntu 10.04. Everything installed as expected, however my CPU fan seems to be louder than usual. I did clean the fan and heat sink, but still running very loudly or fast I guess you could say. Also sometimes the PC shuts down when I try to open FireFox. Any ideas on what could be happening. This is an older machine using an Intel Celeron processor. Not sure of the speed, but I could look at the bios if that is needed.

Ubuntu :: HD 3870 X2 Getting To Hot / Loud On 11.04 But Not On Windows

Aug 18, 2011

the HD 3870 X2 is getting very hot and loud on My fresh Ubuntu 11.04 (64bit) Installation.But on Windows 7(64bit) it's running just fine

AFAIK there are 4 profiles saved in 3870's BIOS

the BOOT Profile = Maximum performance and energy consumption (that i can hear at boot it is extreamly loud)
the 2D Profile = Medium Performance - lower energy consumption and quiet
the 3D Profile = Medium to Maximum Performance (on demand) Crysis2 = very Loud
the idle Profile = Low Performance and Low energy consumption (Windows Explorer/ Photoshop)

the problem is IMHO that the card doesn't switch to the default profile after the GUI booted.so i disabled compiz/ desktop effects and stuff the card kinda thinks i'm not in IDLE catalyst is installed via Ubuntu's driver install program 3d acceleration works but i got a "AMD Unsupported product" Watermark in the right corner of my desktop, pretty anoying tho...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Headphones Really Loud / Slow It Down?

Jan 20, 2010

My Compaq Presario B1800 is running 9.10, and the volume for the speakers is fine. When I plug in my earphones, I think the soundcard supplies the same power to the earphones which is OK quietest of the quietest settings, but way to loud even on the second notch.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Loud Crackle From Speakers On Start-up

Nov 4, 2010

I am experiencing a loud crackle sound coming from my speakers at startup. It appears to be the alsa driver because when I disable it the crackle/pop stops. Sound works when playing back music and videos however. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I reported the issue to launchpad, and was told the issue would be fixed in the latest kernel; I upgraded to 10.10.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Volumes Are Ear-shattering Loud Across Reboots?

Apr 27, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop and I now remember why I didn't ever use it, and that is because the sound volumes are ear-shattering loud across reboots. I have tried doing:Code:sudo alsactl store 0However it doesn't save the settings. I can set the volumes manually using alsa-mixer but that is a pain.I have read the "comprehensive fix to audio problems"sticky but it did not alleviate my problem. And as far as I know, my alsa is up to date.I'm sorry I don't know the relevant output of code needed to show alsa version, etc., so please inform me and I will post accordingly.

Fedora Hardware :: Volume Too Loud In F15 On Bootup

May 27, 2011

I have a problem where the volume in F15 is way too loud. The computer is a Dell Optiplex Gx280 using what is labeled as an Intel ICH6 for the audio card. I have the system volume at about 10% and have to still keep banshee's volume at 5% or lower otherwise it's just too loud. The system saves the volume level between reboots, however I've run alsamixer and noticed that the headphone jack is at max volume.

So, I ran:
sudo alsamixer -c0
lowered the headphone jack volume by half, then ran
sudo alsactl store 0
to save that setting. Upon rebooting, the headphone jack is back to 100%, though.

If I run
sudo alsactl restore 0
then it will restore the settings I saved but it obviously isn't doing this during bootup. How would I run this command at boot?

Software :: Very Loud Volume In OpenSuSE 11.1 - Can't Turn It Down

Jan 13, 2009

I have recently performed a clean install and replaced OpenSuSE 11.0 with 11.1. Most things seem to be working fine, but the sound is extremely loud. None of the volume controls in the mixer seem to have any effect on it at all, but if I mute the PCM channel it mutes the speakers. None of the other mute buttons effect anything, and not even the PCM channel volume has any effect.

The only volume control that seems to work at all is inside whatever program is playing the sound, such as kaffeine or amarok, but even then I have to have it set to around 5% to prevent blowing my eardrums.

The soundcard is a VIA 8237 integrated sound card for a Biostar iDEQ small form factor, and it worked fine in OpenSuSE 11.0 and 10.3.

Software :: Xmms - Volume Starts Very Loud?

Jan 7, 2010

I am using xmms to play mp3 files from machine. Whenever I play a file, the first second or two of the file start very loud and then goes down to a steady volume. I am using alsamixer as the volume controller with software volume control (although switching to wave doesn't make any difference).

My sound card is Soundblaster Audigy 4. I had the same card on my old system and I can't remember it doing it on that so I am assuming it's a software issue... Audacious works fine but I prefer xmms as the equalizer refuses to "stick" to the main window in audacious!!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting Headphone Sound Too Loud - Can't Control It / Make It Normal?

Aug 16, 2010

I have a laptop DELL Latitude D600. The sounds works great and I can control it with the laptop buttons (increase/decrease/mute volume).

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04. In prior versions, I could control independently the volume for the speakers and for the headphones. And I was able to "join" them together so that when I increase the volume, it increases in both.

Now in 10.04 I can't find where to join them. But that's fine. The problem I have now is that the volume for the headphones seems to be a 10x multiplier of the "master" volume. For example, in order to hear "normal" on the headphones, the master volume has to be almost on mute. If I increase to 1/4 of the way out, the sound is too loud for a human being.

I went to alsamixer to see what's going on and started with everything at 0.

So I put my mouse on top of the volume control on the taskbar and with one "click" on the wheel (to increase volume) I get this code...

That's just one 'click' of the wheel... and the volume control shows almost nothing on the volume bar (the tooltip says Output: 5% -75.70 dB.

In the past the 5% gain in the output was proportional for the headphones. But now it's multiplied by a lot. This makes the volume control useless when using headphones. I have to go to alsamixer to adjust manually.

And to top it off, the new Ubuntu doesn't have the "old" volume control where you can see the level of each output element.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Is Vary Loud Until Volume Slider Is Touched

Sep 20, 2010

Basically every time I boot into Ubuntu any sound will be vary loud until I move the volume slider, it doesn't matter how much I move the slider as long as it moves then all sound will play at the normal volume and volume control works like it's suppose too until I reboot. This problem started in 9.10 and still happens in 10.04 and 10.10(as of a couple days ago).As far as I can tell the issue only exists in Ubuntu, doesn't happen in Fedora(Gnome), OpenSuSE(KDE) or Kubuntu.Running 10.04.1 32-bit, Logitech Clear Chat USB Headset, don't have any speakers.

Debian :: Laptop Fan Running Loud After Kernel Upgrade?

Mar 16, 2010

I'm running Debian Squeeze and last night i upgraded to the latest kernel release. Rebooted and noticed that as the system temp rises the fan runs louder(as expected)t unlike before, it no longer gets quieter as the temp drops again. I didn't really think the OS managed that so bit confused why it is happening.I booted into Windows 7 and with the exact same temps the fan drops back down to a quieter state

Hardware :: Insanely Loud Static Scream With New SB 5.1 VX Card.

Feb 28, 2010

I just got myself a new SoundBlaster card and it just gets me nothing but insanely loud screamy static right from boot. I also see Kmix changing to: "USB Device 0x46d:0x990" instead of "CA0106" - which is the soundblaster chip. I did:

1) modproble snd-ca0106
2) disabled onboard sound
3) upgraded ALSA

Sometimes, I can get it to go away by booting up into XP and then back into SimplyMepis 8, but not always.

SUSE :: Loud Popping Sound When On Battery Power Only

Mar 10, 2010

Loud popping sound approx. 11 secs after switching to battery power if audio hasnt been used for awhile (11 secs probably?) It will pop when audio is started (like movie, alert etc etc). It appears to be a power saving problem. And is not occurring for me on other distros, and only started happening recently on OpenSuSE. I found the exact same problem on the OpenSuSE forums dated 2008 (see: [URL]) but no solution as of yet. And by loud popping sound imagine one of those 'black cat' snappers you throw on the ground and they pop, it sounds almost identical.

Fedora Installation :: Window And Button Sounds - WABS Are Very Loud

Jun 11, 2009

I've just installed Fedora 11 and have noticed some funkiness regarding "window and button sounds".

Here are my observations: (All found using "Sound Preferences")

If "Output Volume" (OV) is set to max, and "Alert Volume" (AV) is set to max, the "window and button sounds" (WABS) are very loud. This seems to be correct.

If I begin to move OV to a lower slider value, the WABS become quieter twice as fast as other sounds (such as ..... videos). However, all sounds seem to get quieter in some sort of inverse curve. (As opposed to the more normal linear fashion.) At about 50% level the WABS are non-existent and other sounds are way too quiet.

Now here's the funky thing. If I leave OV at full and begin to reduce AV, whenever a WABS is heard, the OV volume temporarily reduces to the AV level until the sound is finished.

And here's the uber funky thing: If I reduce OV by 25% and AV by 50% and an WABS occurs, the OV volume temporarily changes to a 75% reduced volume. This mathematical relationship remains true until the combined value is greater than 100% reduction, at which point the speaker icon temporarily shows a mute icon (small red "x") and no sound is heard. (This can be seen in "Sound Preferences" and the Gnome-Panel icon.)

Another thing I've noticed is the "Master" slider in "Advance Volume Control" hits rock bottom when the "Sound Preferences" slider is only at 50%. (The terminal based alsamixer has the same behaviour.)

On a positive note, enabling Japanese input was by far the easiest it has ever been on Linux, or even Windows. Awesome! Let's just hope this iBus thingy isn't too buggy... Nyuk, nyuk!

I'm not sure how to find out exactly what my sound chip might be, but it's some nVidia nForce2 doohickey.

Debian Hardware :: Constant Loud Crackling Noise From Yoga 2 Pro Speakers

Aug 27, 2015

This is a weird and persistent bug that I've been having. It's persisted across multiple distros (Arch and Debian) and is currently making my computer only usable without sound. I'm beginning to think it's the hardware.

Anyway, the hardware is a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro laptop. I'm currently running Debian 8. The crackling noise begins shortly after I log in - it happens regardless of whether the audio is muted, or whether anything is currently playing. It's a very, very loud noise - on the level of a vacuum cleaner or similar (maybe, these things are hard to estimate). It sounds sort of like a fast series of crackling pops. If I put the machine to sleep with the power button the crackling will go away for a little bit after I resume - I haven't timed it or anything but I imagine that it takes 30 seconds to start up again (after the computer has woken from sleep).

I can completely eliminate the problem by doing the following:

Code: Select allblacklist snd_hda_codec_hdmi
blacklist snd_hda_intel
blacklist soundcore
blacklist snd_hda_codec_realtek
blacklist snd_hda_codec_generic

[Code] ....

But obviously, this makes the sound on the laptop not work at all. I've been listening to music with my phone, which is an ok workaround, but I'm a programmer and I'd like to be able to watch talks on youtube and so on.

Code: Select all00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT DRAM Controller (rev 0b)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0b)
00:03.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT HD Audio Controller (rev 0b)
00:04.0 Signal processing controller: Intel Corporation Device 0a03 (rev 0b)
00:14.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 8 Series USB xHCI HC (rev 04)

[Code] ....

It started happening on Arch after a pretty standard install (i3wm with Xorg, browser, terminal emulator, etc) and I suspected that I had misconfigured something, so I installed Debian - I know other Debian users with this laptop who have not had this issue, and so I figured the default settings would treat me better. No such luck - it started happening again on the clean Debian install. One detail - both installs (the Arch install and the Debian one) use full disk encryption (lvm on LUKS) but I can't think of how that would affect it.

My only thought is that it's some weird power saving mode issue - the soundcard isn't used for a bit, so it cycles to a lower power state, and the bad thing happens.

Ubuntu :: Beep Command Does Not Work?

Jan 25, 2010

My beep command stopped working -- it does not beep. I think this happened when I upgraded to Karmic (but could have been earlier). I use the beep command to notify me of important events.

I tried looking in sound settings, and did not find anything suspicious. I also tried googling but most stuff just describes how to "disable the annoying beep". Lastly, I tried different software channels and repositories to find an alternative program to the beep command, but nothing happened.

How can I fix it? Its quite important because I often forget to hook it up.

Ubuntu :: System Beep Won't Stop

Jun 16, 2010

I have a HP Laptop with Ubuntu Hardy installed. The system beep makes rapid clicking sound at login window that slowly dissipate and clicking that, so far I can only fix by rebooting, when I play music, reboot after hibernating, and when waking up from suspend. I've turned the system beep off in System/Preferences/Sound but it doesn't do anything.
