Ubuntu Multimedia :: Speakers Stopped Working In 9.10 On A Dell Studio Xps 16?
Jan 12, 2010
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?
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. Today, I go to play music, and nothing comes out of the speakers. Both headphone/speaker jacks work, but when I unplug the headphones, nothing happens.
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.
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.
I have a dell studio 1555 laptop , i m facing the very strange problem with my bluetooth , my bluetooth is not working on my F11 , means to say i cant be enable the bluetooth on my box , i thing its a driver issue.
I have a pair of Creative I-TRIGUE 200 speakers which work perfectly under windows7 but not under Linux Lucid Lynx (nor under 9.10). When the jack is inserted in a headphone socket, the internal speakers are muted but the external speakers are not activated I have been searching the forums, and found advice to add the line:
I have a Dell Studio 1535 and can't seem to get recording from the mic jack to work. I was wondering if anyone has got it to work or not on Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit. I fiddled with the settings in System->Preferences->Sound and in Volume Control: HDA Intel (Alsa mixer), as well as the settings in the semi-CLI program alsamixer, but it doesn't matter what I do. I have failed to get it to record from the mic jack. It will only record from my internal mics, and I don't want that at all.
I've been running Ubuntu on my Dell Studio 1749 laptop since I got it, around 8 months ago.I recently upgraded to Maverick 10.10 64-bit, reformatting and partitioning my hard drive in the process (got rid of windows since I never use it) and it was working perfectly until last Wednesday (22.4.2011). On Wednesday I unplugged my usb headset while in a Skype call to switch to the internal speakers and my computer freaked out, black-screened, and froze. When I rebooted, the internal speakers had stopped working completely, even though the sound works perfectly on both sets of headphones I have.
I've tried most of the fixes that have been presented in other threads and none of them are working, including rebooting the laptop with the headset in. I've tried that with both of my usb headsets, even though I don�t like using the one that it froze on for the exact reason that any time I have audio playing with that headset and it gets unplugged, it black-screens and freezes my laptop. Actually audio doesn�t even have to be playing, sometimes unplugging it even with nothing playing still freezes my laptop. It does it once in a while with my other usb headset, as well, but not every time or anything close to that often.One thread suggested that modifying /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf by appending the following line to the file would work:
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6
But that did nothing at all. Someone else said that they saved a copy of alsa-base.conf and replaced the whole thing with that line, so I did that, with no change. Then I purged alsamixer using
sudo apt-get purge alsa-base
sudo apt-get purge alsa-utils
Then I rebooted, and reinstalled them, which did not fix the issue. However, it did replace the alsa-base.conf file that I modified which shows me that it actually did purge it. (I was an idiot the first time I tried to purge it and only purged and reinstalled alsa-utils..xD So the file did not get replaced, which was when I realised my mistake) I have NOT modified the new file, although I did copy the contents to a text file in case I need to try that fix again.I should also mention that the speakers do work when first booting up Ubuntu to the log-in screen, both with and without headphones I ran the alsamixer diagnostic at the beginning of all this, here's the link: [URL] And then ran it again after purging and reinstalling alsamixer, here's the new link: [URL] I have tried messing with the settings, disabling the headset, setting the input and output manually to internal speakers while the headset is still plugged in, making sure with GNOME alsa-mixer that the speakers are not muted, rebooting with the headsets in and then unplugging them.
I am using OpenSuse 11.2 on a Dell Studio laptop. I have sound through the internal speakers, but no sound through the headphones.I am using KDE and Kmix does have a volume control for the headphone, and it is not muted. None of the sounds are muted.I have run the alsa update as described in another thread and that did not help.
Just upgraded from Intrepid to karmic on my girlfriends Dell Vostro 1510 and the wireless stopped working. The drivers are installed and worked fine under intrepid. When I enter the hardware drivers utility it says that the driver is active but currently not being used.
I have a strange problem with my laptop and need your help in resolving it...i am using a Dell Studio XPS 1645..i have got everything working except the wireless.. and the real problem here is that the wlan detects the network but does not connect to it and will keep on looping back and forward doing the same thing again and again..I am using Opensuse 11.4 with Gnome 3 Shell..here is details of the commands that i tried using to fix the issue
I have made sure the card is not muted using kmix, alsamixer, and running alsaunmute 0. It was working for some time and just stopped. I am not sure if getting rdesktop to work on the laptop caused the issue or not since that seems to be the last major thing I did. (missing my sipie.py). This is what I am working with:
~]$ uname -a Linux xxxx.xxx.xxx 2.6.18-128.7.1.el5 #1 SMP Mon Aug 24 08:20:55 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux ~]$ lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS, 943/940GML and 945GT Express Memory Controller Hub (rev 03)
I am trying to record in Audacity in Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit on a Dell Studio 1535 laptop.The problem is not that its not recording, per se.Rather, the problem is its not recording the way that I want it to.
Its recording from the built-in mic, and I want to use the mic jack instead as a line in from a guitar (well, technically, an acoustic-electric resonator, but its close enough to a guitar to call it a guitar).
I have tried using various devices for recording, and changing settings in both the Volume Control and Sound Preferences, but no matter what I do, Audacity still records from my built-in microphones, instead of from the line-in.
I am using ubuntu 9.10 (kernel 2.6.31-9-rt) and an M-Audio Delta 1010 PCI sound card, and trying to get MIDI inputs and outputs to work on this sound card.I have Jack installed and working. MIDI signals from virtual keyboard or a MIDI player can be routed to fluidsynth, and fluidsynth's audio can be played back through the outputs of the delta 1010.I can use a MIDI sequencer (e.g. rosegarden or qtractor) to record MIDI from virtual keyboard, with jack handling the routing.
But, no matter how I configure the connections in jack, I can't get any signals from the "MIDI In" port on the sound card.Does anybody have some thoughts on how to fix this? Where is the disconnect between the delta 1010 and qtractor? I am concerned also that the "MIDI In" LED on the front panel of the Delta 1010 never blinks. There must be some basic ALSA configuration that needs to be done to activate and use these MIDI ports, or something. I've been trying to figure it out for days.
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...
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
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.
I recently bought Dell Studio 1747 with i7 processor. My fan keeps running fast and does not slow even when the load on processor is low or idle. In pre-installed Windows 7, fan works perfectly increasing and decreasing speed based on work load. The noise made by the fan is irritating.
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.
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?
I upgraded my Dell studio 1555 to Ubuntu 10.04, and now I don't seem to be able to stay connected to the wireless for more than a few minutes. Network manager never notices the disconnect, and it will usually reconnect on it's own in 10-15 minutes, but it just cycles like this endlessly. The wireless worked perfectly in 9.10 and I'm not really sure what is going on. Has anyone else seen this behavior, or maybe has an idea of something I can try? In addition I am having a problem with my laptop freezing. This happened in 9.10, but was very infrequent, now it seems to happen multiple times a night, and seems to be associated with my wireless making a connection. I'm currently posting from my Win7 partition because ubuntu us mostly useless right now.
ISSUE SOLVED: FOUND SOLUTION ON LINUX MINT COMMUNITY[URL]... The solution is for debian, but it worked for me on Kubuntu 11.04. I just installed Kubuntu, and my wireless is not getting detected. I tried a variety of solutions I found online, but none worked. It worked perfectly for Ubuntu Gnome.
When I tried installing the Broadcom drivers in the "Additional Drivers", I got an error that the driver could not be installed.
Has anyone tried that? I have a Dell Studio 1555 running 64-bit Ubuntu 9.10 for about 2 years with almost no issues but I plan to upgrade it straight to 11.04 64-bit (using fresh install because I also want to format the HDD and partition it in a different way).
What I'm reading in the web is though a bit discouraging as there seem to be a lot of issues with 11.04 running on this particular Dell model. Quite a shame as Dell is supposed to provide good experience on Linux since they had been selling laptops with Ubuntu preinstalled (or they used to...).
have a Dell Studio 540 and am currently running Fedora 14 x64 KDE version. All seems to work well except I have no sound. Support.dell.com tells me my sound card needs a RealTek driver as well as ALC888 HD driver.Now I don't use the HD integrated sound (back), so I am assuming it's the Analog sound hardware (that I plug my headphones in on the front of the machine).Not sure if that is clear or not, or maybe will have no relation whatsoever how ever I have no sound. I have installed other distros and sound works, but I would really like to use Fedora.
I have not used Linux in some time (I used to use it back when suse 8 was still out and mandrake linux was still around).
Recently I decided to give it another go and downloaded both the LiveCD and the DVD (both 64-bit versions AND 32-bit versions).
I have a Dell Studio 1747 Laptop (with the 17.3 screen). It has an Intel i7 1.6GB processor, 4GB ram and an ATI Radeon 4650.
My problem is that the LiveCD just will not work. It gets to its boot menu, but when I press enter on the boot KDE live CD option, it will either try to boot and then freeze, or it will boot, you will hear that startup music, but the display will go blank. Could it be that it cannot handle my display or the graphics card on the laptop?
Unfortunately I have Windows 7, which doesn't seem to be supported by the windows installer on the DVD, so I can't test if it would work that way.
I must admit that ubuntu has given me the same grief, and so I wonder if maybe the laptop isn't yet supported properly by linux yet?
how I could use a live system or something, to at least try linux for a few things (I would need to retain windows for games and stuff). I'm not into resizing partitions and things, so I would prefer something else that could work.
I've been attempting to install 32-bit Ubuntu 9.10 on my Dell Studio 1749 with the intention of making a dual-boot system. Attempting to install with a live CD using the default settings, I got as far as pressing ENTER on "Install Ubuntu" before the screen went completely black. The CD drive spun wildly, but nothing ever appeared on the screen. I tried the fix detailed here:
typing "nomodeset" as an option, and using the "apic=off" option. When I did this, I was no longer greeted with a blank black screen, but instead with a blinking cursor, but the installation still hung. The keyboard was unresponsive and I could not open a terminal. I also tried using the alternate installer instead, and got the same results.
After this, I tried installing using wubi, and on boot I get exactly the same results: black screen without "nomodeset" and a blinking cursor otherwise.
I should also mention that the same thing happens for every option on the installation screen, including the option to "try ubuntu" by booting from the CD.
Does anyone know what could be causing this issue, and how I might install ubuntu on my machine?
I'm currently trying to install ubuntu but the installation process hangs on the second page of the installation (right after select language) I am booting from a usb. NO other OS is installed and I'm currently in "try it now" mode.
