Installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my HP laptop. I have installed Ubuntu on 2 of my computers with no problems whatsoever, but this laptop is just a problem. I already had to install the driver for my wireless card, and now I noticed there are no sounds coming from the speakers, but if I plug headphones into the headphone jack, there is sound.
I have Ubuntu 11.04 installed on my Toshiba Satellite C655 laptop. When I plug my headphones, they sometimes work, they sometimes don't, but that's not the main problem. When they do work, sound also plays out of the speakers. The only solutions I was able to find were for earlier versions, which don't work for 11.04.
My Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 running Fedora 8 continues to play sound out of the laptop speakers when external speakers are plugged in (and no sound out of the external). What can I do to diagnose/fix this? code...
This problem presented itself upon upgrading to ubuntu 9.10. Any time something affects the sound system the buzz goes away. If a song plays, no buzz. If I simply adjust or mute the volume, no buzz. But after 10 seconds of no sound related activity, the buzz returns. This is a very loud and aggravating buzz, most likely made worse by the fact that I run my sound through an amplifier.
I don't know what I did but I lost all audio. I'm running F15 with gnome 3. By opening system settings and then sound I don't find anything muted. Under hardware I have 3 devices, the first is RS880 Audio Device (Radeon HD 4200) this one has no sound at all when I click test speakers. Then I have quickcam comm STX and then I have Internal Audio which works by clicking on test speakers.. I have no clue of where to start to fix this but reinstall everything again.
I have an Ubuntu 10.10 OS in a VMware player in which I am unable to get any sound at all. The host windows os plays sound so it can't be the sound card.
The default player is rythymbox and I also have VLC media player installed. Neither will produce any sound. When I press the "test speakers" button on the sound preferences hardware tab, there is no sound.
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 and while everything is working great except the sound. I have an ASUS P5lp-le motherboard that has onboard 5.1 audio,but my speakers are really quiet. I have tried running "alsamixer" in the terminal and everything was turned up all the way. Is there thing else I could try?
I'm running 32-bit Ubuntu 10.04 on an Acer Aspire 3050 laptop with a Realtek HD sound card. When I plug headphones in, the sound comes out of the headphones AND the built-in speakers, instead of the speakers muting as they should.
This happens on both the live CD and the installed OS which i'm running. I've tried every fix I can find on the Internet, including a setting changed in the text-mode ALSA Mixer, installing a package from synaptic, and other fixes for older versions of Ubuntu that can't be done on 10.04.
Before I upgraded to 10.10, I would hear sound on both my PC speakers and on my TV. The speakers are connected via the standard speaker out, the TV was connected via the line-out, through a stereo to RCA adapter. Video is supplied to the TV via HDMI. Now that I've upgraded to Maverick, however, I no longer get sound on the TV. This isn't the usual "sound stopped working completely on upgrade" issue, because I get flawless sound via the PC speakers just as before. I've tried most of the debugging steps recommended in other threads about audio, with no improvement.
The weird thing about all this is, when I plug other speakers or headphones into the same port, I hear audio. So I'm starting to suspect that the problem has to do with the HDMI audio out capability on my video card (an nvidia GT 240), which might have suddenly come alive (if not fully functional) with Maverick's new version of ALSA. I don't know what signal(s) my TV thinks it's getting and have no way of troubleshooting things on that side, but it seems possible that the HDMI it's getting video through is also sending a null/silent audio stream, and that stomps the analog audio signal it's getting from my sound card.
I see two output devices in Sound Preferences, "Internal Audio" and "High Definition Audio Controller". "Internal Audio", ie my onboard sound, is what's producing audio via the speakers. HDMI has never produced any audio, and I don't really need it to if I can just make it work the way it did before. I've tried completely disabling that device, even adding the "snd_hda_codec_nvhdmi" module to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist - no change.
The solution for this could be one of two things: one, I could try to get the HDMI audio out working and let that be what my TV receives, two I try to make the audio setup work as before, with analog audio going to both speakers and TV. Thoughts? I'm leaning towards the latter, ie not bothering with the HDMI audio, as having another audio source would probably mean messing with PulseAudio which has otherwise worked 100% fine for me up until now. If need be I can supply more details on hardware, CLI output etc.
i own toshiba satellite a660 laptop. A fresh install of ubuntu 10.10 works great, but i have a sound problem. Sound only works with headphones. No sound is played through speakers.What should i do?Install any third-party driver?
My headset is doing a fine job, using the standard audio connections, but I'd like to be able to use speakers as well. Someone's given me a very basic "soundball" ‒ only visible identification, the word 'goobay' ‒ that's been doing well on another O/S. When I plug it in, it's on speaking terms with the USB port as far as drawing power goes: but doesn't play anything.
The options from Sound preferences don't include anything as obvious as "use USB port/ use audio connectors". Is there an easy answer?
I am not getting any sound from my computer speakers, I have two hard drives installed one with Windows 7 and the other Linux running Ubuntu 10.10. The speakers are working with Windows 7 but not with Ubuntu I have a Realtek High Definition Sound Card ALC260 is there a place that I can get this from and how do I install it. Please keep it simply as I am easily confused with Linus still.
I just bought a new Dell Studio 15. It's not such an easy ride with Lucid apparently, the broadcom wireless driver sometimes fails, and there is no sign of any bluetooth on ubuntu.But the main annoyance at the moment is that no sound is coming through the line-out.
When I plug my headphones in, the speakers go silent as they are supposed to do. But I can't hear anything in my headphone. I do have two headphone-line-outs on this laptop, but it's the same effect on both.Does anyone have an idea? I searched the forum, tried installing gnome alsa mixer, but everything seems to be unmuted.
After updating my kernel my sound stopped working. I followed the sound problems guide in the sticky thread at the top of this forum and I've now got it to the point where I get sound through the headphones but not through the laptop speakers. Here is my sound info (output from alsa-info.sh thingy). I've added various lines to the end of my alsa-base.conf but no luck.
I'm currently running 32-bit Ubuntu 10.04 on a Pentium 4. I'm currently using the LXDE desktop environment but the problem is the same in GNOME. I have new Altec-Lansing BX1220 speakers. They didn't come with a driver disk and a Google search didn't return any drivers, so they should be plug-and-play. When I plug them in, the light turns on, and with the volume high enough it returns feedback. However, they don't actually play what the computer is playing. I went into alsamixer and made sure all the volumes were turned up; it didn't help. It was plugged into my microphone jack.
I have installed 10.04 on my sony vaio, model VPCF115FM, and when I plug in my headphones I can hear sound, but not from the speakers when I unplug the headphones. I have checked the alsamixer to make sure nothing was muted.
I've just installed ubuntu on my new laptop, an Acer Aspire 5745G. I have a couple of problems. Of course I try to google my problems first, but these efforts were fruitless
Problem 1: Sound works perfectly on the laptop speakers, but when I plug in my headphones, I can't hear anything. The laptop speakers go silent, but there is no sound in the headphones. Very annoying.
Problem 2: I have wireless Internet connection, but the wired network connection doesn't seem to work. There is no activity when I connect the computer to the router.
Problem 3: The button for ejecting the CD-tray isn't the regular type I'm used to with laptops I've used before. On this laptop there is a button just above the numpad keyboard area, that's supposed to eject the cd-tray. This doesn't work, but I can eject it using a command in a terminal.
Basically, my sound is coming through earphones when plugged in, but not coming through speakers without earphones in. I have followed through the steps of other people with the same problem but no luck.
Just installed Ubuntu 10.10 with Wubi (took forever to figure out how to get the wubi.exe to recognize the 10.10 iso) and I don't have sound coming from my speakers. Audio works fine with headphones, but output from speakers is non-existent.
I get sound when I boot into Windows 7, so I doubt it had something to be with the actual speakers. I'm really new to Ubuntu (but loving it!) so troubleshooting is a little difficult for me, especially with terminal commands.
I replaced the motherboard and now the sound on 11.04 only comes from the headphone jack. however when i boot into bios i can get the bios to beep through speakers. the speakers also do not produce sound on a Ubuntu live CD. Here is my output of lspci so you can see all my hardware inside. p.s. its a laptop dell stidio 1558
I have not got any sound in Ubuntu 10.10 my sound card is a Realtek HIGH Definition sound card ALC260, I have a HP c5750 Microtower Dual Core processor. I have two hard drives installed one with Windows 7 and the other is Linux running Ubuntu 10.10. I know the speakers work because I have sound using Windows but no sound with Linux except from the internal speaker in the computer. Is there away to get sound using my Linux drive
I'm running openSUSE 11.1, KDE 3.5.10. I used to get system sounds (like startup etc) and I could get sounds from Amarok when I played .mp3 files.
However, yesterday my Amarok crashed and I could not get any sound from Amarok (I was using gstreamer/auaup engine, didn't have any other engine). But I could still hear the system sounds like shutdown, startup etc.
So I was playing around with KMix and alsamixer settings. I don't have root access on the computer so I can't change any configuration files or anything. Just changed the volume controls etc. But now I can't get any system sounds.
I ran speaker-test and no sound there either. All my mixer volume controls are on max but I can't remember exactly what I changed on KMix. I'm thinking I messed up the switches some how.
I have an HP Pavilion Desktop computer with integrated speakers in the screen. When I do not have any headphones plugged in my headphone jack, sound is coming out of the speakers.When I plug headphones in my headphone jack, sound is coming out of both the speakers and the headphones. I would like for sound to come only from the headphones when they are plugged in.
I recently switched to Ubuntu 9.10 from Fedora 12 because it was giving me problems, but now I've run into some problems with Ubuntu. I really only use my computer for internet and music, and I'm not really able to listen to my music.My computer is an HP Pavillion dv7-3060US laptop, AMD 64bit processor, 4gb ram, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530 graphics chip and an ATI chipset (not sure which).
I have an altec lansing speaker configuration, with a built in subwoofer on the bottom. My problem comes that the sound is coming out of the subwoofer, not the actual speakers themself. When I try plugging in an external set of speakers, nothing happens, the sound still plays. Switching the device from "Interal audio analog stereo" to the other choices in my list does nothing (system>preferences>sound is the list im talking about)I'm able to hear music through my subwoofer when using totem music player, but neither rhythmbox nor amarok play any music. amarok doesn't play at all, and rhythm box shows the music is loaded but no sound comes out and it looks like its playing it at 2x speed.
I've attempted to follow the comprehensive audio problems guide here but I get to step 3 and the website isnt the same, so I can't continue.These are the outputs from the first few steps:
