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 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 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 just installed Fedora 15 and I'm liking it quite a bit but I have no sound output. My USB speakers (bose companion 5) show up in sound preferences, and I've selected them as the sound output device. And whenever an application (such as Rhythmbox) plays music, it shows up in the list of sound-outputting applications. But there's no sound.
I've checked that none of the mixers are muted (in fact all are on maximum), and my speakers are not muted either. Switched USB ports; it's working fine now. Wacky. Something about order of initialization? I plugged my mouse into the "offending" USB port and it works fine too. OK, I get it, it's not about the USB port. I have to plug in my speakers AFTER Fedora boots. That's kind of annoying but bearable.
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.
I've been having problems with audio not working through the speakers since I upgraded to Jessie. I did a fresh install, the same hardware worked out of the box on Wheezy. Audio does work through the headphones - searching Google results in a LOT of similar issues on various distros, but none of the suggestions I've found have worked. Pulseaudio is not installed.
Alsamixer shows that the speakers are un-muted, and toggling the headphone auto-mute in case that was causing problems doesn't work. lsmod shows that snd_hda_codec_hdmi is loaded and in use - could it be trying to send sound via HDMI? Odd, because this laptop does not have an HDMI port. Blacklisting that module doesn't seem to make a difference however.
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.
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
After trying at least a dozen distros, I'm a happy OpenSuse user now and hoping to stick to it for some time now. I am running it on HP DC7800 workstation and the performance is superb. One problem I have is that my sound is not working. If I plug-in the headphone to the front jack, I sear sound just fine but nothing from internal speakers. Here are some details:
I recently installed realtek sound driver software in my system, but after installing it,the speakers are not working.... I'm using fedora 13(x86_64). i just want to make my system speak,like before.... how to make my speakers work ?
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.
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?
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.
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...
Sound continues to drop out of flash in firefox. Reinstalling flash will bring it back, but it will drop out next browser session. All audio works in other applications. Skype, Last.fm, Rhythmbox, Amarok, Movie Player, etc. Even downloaded swf files will play sound. It's just in firefox, from what I can see so far. I don't know if Steve Jobs flying overhead in a black helicopter has anything to do with it, but perhaps.
Have just upgraded to 10.10 using update manager, using firefox playing flash videos works fine untill i try to watch in fullscreen where the video freezes every few minutes although the sound keeps playing.toshiba satellite laptop using Intel, GMA 4500MHDto solve this would be appreciated, really don't won't to have to re-install 10.04 if i can avoid it
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.
I currently have pclinuxos 2007 (updated to kde4). I put on webinars, and like to record them using recordmydesktop. All is working fine by putting a splitter in my speaker out, and feeding it back into my line in. This only works when I have analog loopback not muted.My problem is that pclinuxos is now putting out there 2010 version, and there is no way I can see to un-mute the analog loopback. It does not show up as any options onkmix.... I am going to attach a couple pictures one with my old kmix, and one with the new 2010 version.My question is, how can I get back that analog loopback, or is there another way to get the sound to record from both my speaker and my mic?
