Ubuntu Multimedia :: Speakers Not Working With ALSA?


I have an HP-dc5800 computer, and my internal speaker was not working, no matter what i did. However, i could get sound with headphones. Here is what i did to fix it. It may work for you.

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf Add options snd-hda-intel model=hp-m4 enable_msi=1 to the end of the file. I changed model=hp-m4 to model=hp-dc5800. So, changing the model to the model of your computer may work. Underneath that, i put in; options snd-hda-intel enable=1 enable_msi=1 single_cmd=1 power_save_controller=1 here is a list of some of the models. http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentat...dio-Models.txt

Debian Multimedia :: Squeeze And Alsa Not Working With Rear Jack Speakers?
I'm at the tail end of my upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze and I think this sound issue is the last one I have.
As usual I've tried hunting for some answers but it gets very confusing when people are using KDE or PulseAudio or Ubuntu or slightly different configuration to what I have.

My config:
Debian Squeeze 2.6.32
Alsa (just because I was using that in Lenny and it was working, no other reason)
Gnome
Rhythmbox
Skype

Skype is pretty good - it has the sound configuration built in, so I say ring the speakers and it does. I say talk to the headset and it does. Rhythmbox is my music player (again just because I was using it under Lenny) however it only wants to play through the headset. I can't seem to get it to play to the speakers attached to the rear port.

Summary of some settings (transposed manually)
# aplay -l
*** List of PLAYBACK hardware devices ***
card 0: Headset (Logitech) device 0: usb audio
subdevice 0/1
card 1: Intel HDA device 0: ALC883 Analog

[Code].....

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Disable Headphone Detection In Alsa - To Force Speakers On?
I'm running lucid, and my headphones plug is broken, it always detects it is plugged, so the speakers are always off... if i install oss v4, that does not support headphone detection, my internal speakers work flawlessly.

But I want to try the alsa ones, plus i coudn't make all my media keys to work as i intended when i had oss installed...

here is some information that might be relevant code...

i've also tried adding to alsa-base.conf this:
options snd-hda-intel model=laptop enable=1 index=0

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HP Speakers Not Working In 10.04 64-bit
I'm a new Ubuntu user and I've only been using it for a couple of days. I realized that my external speakers do not work. I've been looking around for ways to solve it. I used alsamixer to look up my chip and card and stuff and it was

HDA Intel
Realtek ALC888

I ran a script which said it could get my speakers working by updating the alsa drivers, but not System->Preferences->Sound doesn't even show any sound card (Sound Blaster Xtreme Audio is what I have) and alsamixer fails to run. I'm just trying to get my speakers to work. Also System -> Preferences -> Sound now doesn't show my webcam mic or internal sound either...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Alsa Not Working At Startup?
My audio was working just fine up until today, when I was working on some audio production stuff. I did QjackCtl, and also ran pulse-jack so I could use another app not in jack. Now, upon a boot up, there is no gnome-volume-control-applet or gnome-volume-control running. When I run gnome-volume-control it says there is no sound device (without Jack running). When I do it with Jack and Pulseaudio running (doing QjackCtl and pulse-jack), gnome-volume-control shows info about jack, but no hardware. I have sound, I just can't affect it volume-wise, etc. When I run pacmd I get this:

$ pacmd
Daemon not responding.

When I close QjackCtl I then get an error in a window that says merely: Waiting for sound system to respond.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Keep ALSA Drivers Working?
Running songbird, have been just fine for months, now every time I try to play a file I get "autoaudiosink and alsasink are missing." I can cure this by following the "Getting the ALSA drivers from a *fresh* kernel" instructions in the comprehensive sound solutions guide. But I have to do this *every time* I restart my computer. How can I fix this permanently?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Speakers Are Working - Headphones Are Not ?
Audo is working fine through the Internal laptop speakers. when i plug in my headphones, nothing happens, the audio continues to play through the speakers, and nothing comes from the headphones. ive tried changing up things in sound preferences and alsa-mixer, but nothing seems to be working.

Im 100% sure the head phone jack isn't broken, and the headphones aren't broken (they both work in windows just fine.) Im running 10.04, on an amd-64x HP-dv3.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ALSA Sound Not Working After Update
At least, I think it was the update that broke it. Anyway, my sound was working fine yesterday. I have gone through this thread to try and fix my sound, and it appears that my sound card has been uninstalled.

Step 1. aplay -l
Code:
aplay: device_list:235: no soundcards found...

Step 2. lspci -v
Code:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE/PE DRAM Controller/Host-Hub Interface (rev 01)
Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. Device 5770
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0
Memory at e0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=64M]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: agpgart-intel
Kernel modules: intel-agp .....

Code:
sudo modprobe snd-intel8x0
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base, it will be ignored in a future release.
FATAL: Error inserting snd_intel8x0 (/lib/modules/2.6.31-22-generic/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

Last time my sound wasn't working, I was directed to this thread. The script from this thread might work again, but if it will just be erased after every update, I'd like something a bit more permanent.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Volume Control Not Working After Alsa Upgrade?
My internal mic on sony vaio was not working on karmic 64bit. After I followed these instructions [URL] (updated alsa to 1.0.22) I got the microphone working, but now mplayer does not play any sound (although it plays files), as it tries to use pulse by default. However when run with -ao alsa, it works fine.

Other than that, the volume control has not effect on the sound, so every time I need to control it using alsamix.

When I remove pulseaudio, everything seems to be working, except gnome-volume-control and gnome-volume-control-applet do not start, and the keyboard volume controls dont work.

Here are the sound cards I have:

Code:
progre55@progre55:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC262 Analog [ALC262 Analog]
Subdevices: 0/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Speakers Stopped Working In 9.10 On A Dell Studio Xps 16?
Strange thing is that the headphone jacks still work just fine. Used to be that unplugging the headphones would cause the sound to come out of the laptop speakers, but now sound never does. I'm wondering if the software that controls the routing of sound between the speakers and the headphone jacks is messed up?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Speakers Stopped Working - Sound Not Functional
I've suddenly developed "no sound" at all- I use Logitech USB speakers and have been doing fine until this weekend when they simply won't play any longer. I searched and followed a bunch of different troubleshooting to no avail. I am running 9.10 with all the latest updates. I ran apt-get update and upgraded following this to be sure while doing this troubleshooting.

I went ahead and ran the also information script and the output is here: [URL]

The speaker lights are on so there is power getting there. I re-set the sound preferences to use the usb as output device and cranked the volume up all the way. This preference does not seem to stay between reboots or even when checking while troubleshooting this problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HP Pavilion DV5000 Internal Speakers Not Working?
yesterday i was on videos, and i had headphones plugged into the headphone socket on my laptop.i unplugged them a few times because they were needed elsewhere, but on the last time i unplugged them, the sound didn't return to the internal speakers. i plugged the headphones back in, and there was sound out of the headphones, but not speakers. i rebooted the laptop, still to find sound only out of the headphones. i then was very bad, and booted into wingdoze, and still sound only out of the headphones.
i've tried doing the muting channels in alsa-mixer as well. muting didn't work. i've also tried cleaning the headphone socket with ispopropyl alcohol too. and removing the bios battery and battery and ac adaptor... just incase it will do a reset of some description. no. still nothing.

[code]...

edit: the "mute" media button light appears to be lit, however pressing it only feeds a software into the computer, and doesn't turn the light off. i'll try playing around a bit more. edit: i just discovered that if you hold down the m key on alsamixer to mute/unmute the "external amplifier" channel, the light flashes! this is beginning to look promising. edit: if i unmute the external amplifier before i log out, it stays unmuted until i log back in again. what can i do to stop it from muting as soon as i log back in again?

Ubuntu :: Alsa Mixer Auto Mutes Speakers On Startup.
I've got an Acer 7736 and had quite a few issues with no sound after my install of 10.10. After quite a bit of fiddling I managed to get that sorted and I now how have sound. I believe I'm using alsa although pulse also does seem to be on here. The reason I say I believe I'm using alsa is that after startup, I have no sound on speakers unless I unmute it in alsamixer.

As I understand it alsa's supposed to save your settings on logout/shutdown/reboot but this doesn't appear to be the case, and I'm not able to find any asound.conf or the like in the places they're apparently supposed to be.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dell Studio 15 Laptop Speakers Stopped Working
I've been running Ubuntu 10.04 on my Dell Studio laptop for a few months now with no audio problems. Last night I was listening to music just fine, then put my laptop to sleep and went to bed.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Laptop Speakers Not Working: Dell Inspiron 700m
The only problem I've had so far seems to be a common one but I haven't found a specific solution for a dell inspiron 700m. I have sound through the headphones but not through the laptop internal speakers. I've played with the alsamixer settings endlessly but no success, and I'm 99% sure that it's not an issue with the hardware or speaker wiring. I suspect I need to add an 'options snd-hda-intel model=xxxxx' line to alsa-base but not sure what argument to use.

Software :: GUI Mixer (ALSA) - Muting The Speakers While Leaving The Signal To The Headphone
I recently upgraded from FC11 to FC14 by backing up /home, saving the output of "rpm -qa", repartitioning, installing FC14, restoring /home, re-running "rpm -qa" and installing packages that I had before.

But I noticed that the nice GUI mixer that I had before which could allow me separately muting the speakers (conneced to "front" jack) while leaving the signal to the headphone
jack is missing. I think it was an ALSA mixer but I'm not 100% sure. I downloaded alsa-driver-1.0.24.tar.bz2 but after

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Configuring Alsa (or Alsa-oss) After Hardware Upgrade?
I have recently been forced to do a hardware upgrade (my previous mobo died). Now, sounds works ok with,amarok because kde has recognized the new hardware and switched to it.

..... does not work, likely because flash uses alsa-oss which is probably not configured automatically. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both alsa-oss and flash, but it didn't solve the problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Headphone Working But Speakers Does Not
I've Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my desktop dual boot with Windows 7. This is my motherboard. My motherboard has 6 slots for sound devices and I use a pair of speakers and my headphones together, so they all take up 3 slots, i.e. 1 for speaker, 1 for headphone output and 1 for headphone's mic. I'm able to listen from my headphone as well as speakers at any given point of time on Windows 7, but recently when I installed Ubuntu, it only gives audio output to my headphones, and not my speakers. How I can receive audio output on the speakers as well as headphones?
