I might have a different problems as I have a newer laptop, a HP dv6-2170us with intel i5 cpu. I had no wireless with the 2.6.31 kernel so I upgraded to the 2.6.34 and had to manually compile my wireless driver. Everything works great now except the sound issue. I thought it use to work out the box with the old kernel, but then again I might be wrong. I knwo it works in the "other os" dual booting and all. Its a not a huge issue, but hopeing I could resolve it. Here is some of the info from reading some of the other posts. the model=dell-vostro I just tried to see if that works, which is doesnt, so thats why thats in my sound.conf file.
Have I missed anything? I have tried the fix here: Audio coming from both headphone and laptop speakers - Page 3 - openSUSE Forums page 3 about adding a repo and upgrading, but that upgrade wants me to revert back to the older kernel in which case I dont have wireless support or acpi working proporly, so thats not a doable thing for me.
I am getting a high pitched ringing sound coming from my speakers and headphones on 9.10.Does anyone have any ideas what is causing this problem and how to fix it? It is really annoying after awhile and is headache inducing.I've tried switching from PulseAudio and ALSA with no changes.
I have a strange problem with my audio on Linux. Some months ago I bought a new laptop (an Asus M51Vseries (M/B version M51Vr)), and now I want to install Linux on it. However, there are some problems. When I first booted up my newly installed Linux distro, Debian Lenny (kernel 2.6.26-1-686), I had sound when I tried to play movies, mp3s, etc. However, after next boot, the sound had disappeared. Nothing came out of the speakers even though everything had worked before. Nothing had changed in the mixers as far as I can tell, either. So I googled a lot and came about pages telling me I should edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base and passing on a model option. Unfortunately it didn't work. I then put off the project a while, and yesterday I tried installing Linux again. Magically, sound worked again, and after rebooting, it had gone. I am at my wit's end.
When I think about it, I find it strange that sound that HAD worked, should stop working, and then start working again by passing a model=... (I tried several) in alsa-base.According to alsamixer (and yes, all channels are at the highest volume level, NOT muted), the chip is a Realtek ALC663. The Alsa version is 1.0.16.I hope you are able to help me. I really want to get rid of Windows, but I won't accept not having sound.
i have uninstalled and reinstalled alsa and made sure its not muted, in pulse audio it displays sound is coming out when i play a song, but no sound is actually coming out.. i dont want to go back to windows, but if i cant get sound im going to have to
Just installed Ubuntu on my dad's computer, now all I hear from the speakers is static.
I have had to use the liveCD to edit grub and then Chroot and update-grub (don't think that matters, but just throwing it out there.)
Speakers had static on liveCD, as the OS booted up (it tried to play the Ubuntu logon sound) but after it got logged in, it did great!) Now it won't work at all, I can make out that someone is talking, but not what they are saying Aesop's Fables in Examples folder.
so my problem is that i can't disable the speakers on my laptop when i plug in my headphones. in other words, i get sound from both the headphones and the speakers, when the expected behavior is to disable the speakers when headphones are plugged in, and enable the speakers when headphones are unplugged..
i've been looking around the forum and google, and i found a way to adjust the speaker and headphone volume manually in alsamixer. To adjust the headphone volume on alsamixer, i can raise or lower volume using the "Front" volume bar. To adjust the speaker volume, i raise or lower volume on the "Speaker" volume bar.
so, it's cool to know that i can do this manually, but i'm sure there's an option i can put in alsa-base.conf to automate this. i just can't seem to find that option...
anyway, i'm using Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit...and here's my alsa-base.conf file
I was trying to fix my audio, I had it coming out of my headphones and speakers at the same time. I was told to run this script to try to fix the problem but it only made it worse. I've attached screen shots showing that I now have no hardware showing.
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.
All of my audio is working great now on Open Suse 11.2: MP3s, Skype,Flashplayer etc.all are working great. There is only one strange thing that is happening, when I plug in my headphones I get audio coming out of my laptop and my headphones! How can I get my audio to come out of my headphones only when I plug them in?
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...
I have been using Ubuntu as my main OS on my desktops for a couple of years now. Started off with a HP with a Creative Labs XiFi soundcard, but am now using a Dell with a Creative Labs Audigy. Sound worked perfectly on the Dell since a clean install (about 7 months ago). I turned it on a week or so ago, and no sound! Even the little sound indicator in the notification area has gone.
I seem to be having sound issues on CentOS 5. When I run the sound card configuration, my sound card is recognized and the test sound plays fine but there is no sound coming out of any applications. This just started today and I have made no changes to my computer or installed any new software.
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.
how do i fix my sound problem. i'v just installed ubuntu 9.10 (karmic koala), but once i went to videos i clicked on a video to watch after i installed flash. but any video i try to play, they all come out with no sound what do i do?
I am not a programmer. I am a common man. Recently I bought a latest compaq laptop with intel core i3, 2gb ram, 250gb hard disk. As sound was not coming without earphones I tried steps mentioned in [URL].. following supported in ubuntu latest version? I downloaded and installed ubuntu from [URL]..yesterday

Just completed a dual boot of win7 and jaunty today and all went well. Only problem is when I connect my mikomi headphones the audio comes through both the headphones and the speakers. I don't have this problem in windows. I'm just wondering if someone could point me towards a driver i may have to download or a setting i need to change.
I have had linux 10.04 installed for a while now and have always had this problem. There is a constant static noise in the background in my headphones, it amplifies whenever I move the mouse or scroll etc.
I have tried searching for a way to fix this but nothing came up that was able to help me. I can't think of any other information I could give,
I am on Ubuntu 10.10 and attempting to use my C-Media USB Headphone Set for use with Skype. It used to work at some point; now it just isn't doing anything at all. Ubuntu still recognises the hardware but no sound is coming out at all.
