View Full Version : [all variants] No sound at all ICH5

June 4th, 2011, 05:48 AM
Running Xubuntu 11.04 on an hp a250n. It has integrated audio, but I have no audio working in linux. Checked to make sure it was unmuted and tried all devices in sound preferences. a "aplay -l" command turns up this:

frosty@Xubuntu-Frost:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: ICH5 [Intel ICH5], device 0: Intel ICH [Intel ICH5]
Subdevices: 1/1

frosty@Xubuntu-Frost:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [ICH5 ]: ICH4 - Intel ICH5
Intel ICH5 with ALC650F at irq 17

and a "lspci -v" command returned this:

Now it looks like the integrated sound card is found... but I am unsure of what to do next. any help will be deeply appreciated. I bet its probably something simple, but Im not sure. Thanks.

Running this command in a terminal window and posting back the link to the response will be helpful information for someone to assist with troubleshooting.
wget -O alsa-info.sh http://alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh && bash ./alsa-info.sh

Checked to make sure it was unmuted
Did you check this through alsamixer? (open a terminal window, type in alsamixer, and check that all devices are unmuted? (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alsamixer
