Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting A High Pitched Ringing Sound Coming From Speakers And Headphones On 9.10?
Jan 19, 2010
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 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.
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 upgraded to 11.04 today, and ever since the upgrade my speakers (and headphones; any audio device) emit a high-pitched shriek when connected to the computer. This only happens after I enter my password on the login screen, and only in Ubuntu. There's no problem when I boot Windows.
The sound is very high pitched and my speakers play no other generated sounds while emitting this static. Obviously, I'd like to be able to have sound and listen to my music, so this needs to be fixed.
I used WUBI to install ubuntu 11.04 on my computer. I have an hp computer with AMD + ATI graphics. Once I am logged in to my account I get a high pitching buzzing noise. Can you help me get rid of it because it is extremely annoying.
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,
After updating my kernel my sound stopped working. I followed the sound problems guide in the sticky thread at the top of this forum and I've now got it to the point where I get sound through the headphones but not through the laptop speakers. Here is my sound info (output from alsa-info.sh thingy). I've added various lines to the end of my alsa-base.conf but no luck.
I have installed 10.04 on my sony vaio, model VPCF115FM, and when I plug in my headphones I can hear sound, but not from the speakers when I unplug the headphones. I have checked the alsamixer to make sure nothing was muted.
I replaced the motherboard and now the sound on 11.04 only comes from the headphone jack. however when i boot into bios i can get the bios to beep through speakers. the speakers also do not produce sound on a Ubuntu live CD. Here is my output of lspci so you can see all my hardware inside. p.s. its a laptop dell stidio 1558
I have an HP Pavilion Desktop computer with integrated speakers in the screen. When I do not have any headphones plugged in my headphone jack, sound is coming out of the speakers.When I plug headphones in my headphone jack, sound is coming out of both the speakers and the headphones. I would like for sound to come only from the headphones when they are plugged in.
I just installed 10.10 and I'm having an issue where sound outputs from the headphones and my speakers simultaneously, and the volume control controls both outputs rather than one of them individually.This has been asked about before at this thread, but none of the solutions I've tried from there have worked. I tried installing linuxant, but it just killed my sound altogether despite uninstalling it afterward. I tried updating the Linux audio modules as per this page but to no avail.I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 (64-bit) on my own custom built desktop, which for what it's worth, contains this motherboard.
I have an old Acer Travel Mate 290 with OpenSuSE 11.3 (LXDE) 30G and 240Mb RAM. I don't have sound in the internal speakers, I only have sound through the headphones. Here you will find the information of alsa-info.sh [URL]
When I type: rpm -qa '*alsa*' alsa-utils-1.0.23-1.8.i586 alsa-plugins-1.0.23-1.9.i586 alsa-1.0.23-2.12.i586 alsa-firmware-1.0.23-1.2.noarch alsa-oss-1.0.17-29.2.i586 .....
I'm having an issue with my computer and the headphones. When I plug in the headphones into the headphone jack, the sound plays through the headphones but it also plays through the speakers as well at the same time. I've attempted to play around with the sound settings to see if I can get this issue resolved but I have not been able too. Computer specifications are in my signature.
What it says on the tin really. Whenever i set my sound preferences to 5.1 analog surround i get a sort of high-pitched whine/buzz coming through the speakers along with the regular sound, however if i switch to stereo duplex, it vanishes.
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 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
I'm running 32-bit Ubuntu 10.04 on an Acer Aspire 3050 laptop with a Realtek HD sound card. When I plug headphones in, the sound comes out of the headphones AND the built-in speakers, instead of the speakers muting as they should.
This happens on both the live CD and the installed OS which i'm running. I've tried every fix I can find on the Internet, including a setting changed in the text-mode ALSA Mixer, installing a package from synaptic, and other fixes for older versions of Ubuntu that can't be done on 10.04.
I installed skype, and all the sound works, except for the fact that it doesn't ring when someone calls me!!! All i see is a little pop up that says someone is calling me, but I cannot hear the ringtone. When i pick up, i hear the other end clearly, there's just no ringtone with someone calls me
Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it?
I've just installed ubuntu on my new laptop, an Acer Aspire 5745G. I have a couple of problems. Of course I try to google my problems first, but these efforts were fruitless
Problem 1: Sound works perfectly on the laptop speakers, but when I plug in my headphones, I can't hear anything. The laptop speakers go silent, but there is no sound in the headphones. Very annoying.
Problem 2: I have wireless Internet connection, but the wired network connection doesn't seem to work. There is no activity when I connect the computer to the router.
Problem 3: The button for ejecting the CD-tray isn't the regular type I'm used to with laptops I've used before. On this laptop there is a button just above the numpad keyboard area, that's supposed to eject the cd-tray. This doesn't work, but I can eject it using a command in a terminal.
I'm using a new acer laptop 7736G with x64 ubuntu 10.04.Sound plays through both headphones and speakers when attached. When I use alsamixer and mute either the speaker or headphones, both of them mute.When I alter the volume of the 'headphone' column, nothing happens.If you need any more detail about my sound card etc I can go find it..
