View Full Version : [ubuntu] On again/off again sound problem

June 4th, 2011, 04:09 AM
I have a cheap PCI soundcard. It's based on the Soundblaster Live, I believe, and I got it from Best Buy. I'm aware of a compatibility issue with Ubuntu, but here's the weird thing: it isn't always broken.

On a whim, I checked out 11.4 by installing with Wubi, and when it booted, the sound worked perfectly. I was really happy about it. A week later, I booted it up again, and now instead of sound all I hear is this harsh hissing noise.

Did I put this in the wrong forum?
