Ubuntu :: Mint 9 No Sound In New HP Laptop - Fresh Install

Sep 21, 2010

I did was install MInt 9 on it. Everything is going well except no sound at all. Not even the 'start up chime' of any music/videos. I have the volume buttons working on the laptop and I have checked sound preferences and nothing is muted. I did not dig much further as I have learned with mint and ubuntu that can create problems. This is a fresh install and no sound from the get go. How should I proceed to trouble shoot?

General :: Sound Card Apparently Installed But Sound Doesnt Work

Jun 16, 2010

trying to get everything set up in Debian lenny on my new Toshiba staellite L500. I have successfully installed the wireless drivers and graphics card and have them both up and running. But I'm having trouble with the sound card. Specifically, it appears to be installed but I cant get any sound or any devices related to sound (speakers, volume control, alsamixer) to work at all.

this is my kernel:

uname -r

and this is the result of lspci:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Device 0044 (rev 02)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 0045 (rev 02)
00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation Ibex Peak HECI Controller (rev 06)

General :: Acer Aspire 7741z-5731 With Kubuntu/Ubuntu/and Mint KDE?

Mar 8, 2011

I recently acquired an Acer Aspire 7741Z-5731. I've tried to install Kubuntu and Ubuntu 10.10 - both give me problems with video and sound. I have researched this without finding a definitive answer that works. On the video issue - both Kubuntu and Ubuntu boot and work fine on the the USB Drive. When installed however - both just boot to a black screen prompt. Neither address the soundcard that came with the Acer - both show "dummy output" under the gui interface for changing sound settings.

On Linux Mint KDE - installs fine - just not able to get sound - same as above - only "dummy output" is available in the gui. I've tried reading the Ubuntu and Kubuntu posts at their forums. The problem is that when I start messing around in terminal - I don't get the same results that the posts indicate. I do know that ALSA is not installed by default in any one of the three distros I'm working with. I tried installing it from the terminal per the instructions I found on several linux forums - no luck however.

Why am I having such a problem getting Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Linux Mint to load "out of the box" so to speak on a somewhat standard laptop? OpenSuse worked flawlessly - I just don't like it as much as the Ubuntu derrivatives. I suspect that Debian may also work "out of the box" without issues. I am even considering Mandriva. As a newbie to linux, I find it extremely frustrating that I cant just install the software and have it work without having to do a bunch of stuff in a terminal window that I either don't fully understand, or that doesn't produce the expected results. Is this what a new user can anticipate when they opt to try and learn linux - a bunch of command line hooo - ya ? Anyone have any suggestions on how to get any of these to load on my Acer Aspire 7741Z-5731? It really should not be this difficult or frustrating to get a distro that is touted as "the most popular" to install and work right off the USB or CD/DVD install. It is seemingly easy to understand why Linux has not yet become a windows or mac killer. There should be a website for linux that can determine what drivers you need and automatically install them so for the user so that the command line can be ignored by the new user.

Hardware :: Sound In Acer 7736zg Laptop / Plugged Into A Black "hole" As There Is Not Green One Available?

May 3, 2010

Everytime I connect some external headspeakers (headset?) on my laptop the built in speakers are not muted.

My laptop is a dual boot and this problem does not exist on Windows 7, which probably means that this is not some strange hardware problem.

One more think that might help you find a solution for me is that there speakers are plugged into a black "hole" as there is not green one available.

Actually there are 3 colored "holes" for the jacks to be plugged in.A blue one (do not have a clue what might be plugged in there). A pink one which is for microphone and a black one which works fine in Windows 7 when i plug in my headset.

P.S I also dump some hardware info that might prove useful to you.

1) url
2) rpm -qa '*alsa*'

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Acer Aspire 4810T Laptop - Hardware Brightness Keys System Slowdowns, Software Controls Don't Work

Mar 14, 2011

I have an Acer 4810T laptop with Intel graphics. I run openSUSE 11.3, and am about to upgrade to 11.4. But both systems still have a very bad bug with screen brightness. The Fn+Arrow keys do change screen brightness, but after using them the system is rendered extremely sluggish and unresponsive. This sluggishness is most pronounced with a very important Wine app I need to use. The only way to fix the sluggishness is to reboot. With 11.4, the problem is worse because the system boots and automatically partially dims the screen, thus making it even more necessary to change the brightness. Neither Gnome nor KDE are able to change the brightness via their power managers. This means that I can't dim my screen automatically upon disconnecting the A/C power.

I have read many experiences from Ubuntu and openSUSE users, who all have the same problem. I have tried both intellegacy and the new intel drivers, and they both have the problem. I have read that some users have improved the situation by upgrading or downgrading the BIOS. Others have been experimenting with kernel patches:

General :: Mint 9 KDE Installed - Screen Splashing / Blanking

Sep 23, 2010

I recently installed Mint 9 using/trying KDE, which I found very intuitive and feature-rich. However, a snag soon appeared. The screen started to blank every few seconds or minute. This is pretty annoying. I have so far tried every tried-and-tested means available, exhaustively, to no avail. Even their website has this as a known issue, yet the solution (i.e. configuring the screen resolution) doesn't seem to work for me.

Debian Multimedia :: Cannot Get Sound To Work On Laptop

Jun 18, 2011

I am running Debian Squeeze on a laptop and I cannot get sound to work on it. It detects theres 2 sound cards in alsamixer and under cards i see HDA-Intel - HA ATI SB and HDA ATI SB at 0x90400000 irq 16. I think HDA-Intel is suppose to be selected not what is currently selected which is HDA ATI SB. If thats not an issue I'm not sure what is and I've tried reinstalling Squeeze and it still hasn't fixed the issue.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Sound To Work Properly In HP Dv7 Laptop

Mar 28, 2010

I've been struggling to get my sound to work properly in my HP dv7 laptop in Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit.

If I follow the instructions here [URL] then I can get my microphone to work.

My speakers worked fine right out of the box, but the headphone jack does not. When I follow the instructions here [URL] and install the alsa backports then my headphone jack works properly, but when I shutdown my computer I get a loud crackling/popping sound. Uninstalling the alsa backports stops the crackling, but then the headphone jack doesn't function.

General :: Ancient Thinkpad Running Mint 9 Cannot Get Sound To Endure Re-boot?

Dec 6, 2010

with the help of others (to whom grateful thanks), I've managed to get this distro installed and my PCMCIA Wireless card working without a LAN connection!Result......well it was for me!next big prob is sound.......any sound at all!This command sudo modprobe snd-cs4236 sometimes gives me some, just for the current session, if it don't want to play, it just ignores me!Two main questions,

1) How do I get the attention of the "Alsa Mixer"? (the GUI is normally just blank and may or may not be activated by the above command!)
2) Once I have the attention of the "Alsa mixer", how do I maintain it upon re-boot?

Some one guided me to this post and despite it's age, I appended my plea for help....but I fear it is not the correct place............I just hope I'm now in the right place.url
