I recently got a new laptop, an Acer Aspire 6920. I installed 8.04 yesterday, only to find out that i could not get the sound running.
I (obviously) verified that my hardware was working beforehand, so that is a non-issue.
Names of available sound cards:
I made sure that nothing was muted in alsaconfig, as i have seen that was an issue in other threads.
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC883 Analog [ALC883 Analog]
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
I have also read that quite a lot of people have trouble with this specific sound card. However, none of the fix i have seen worked so far. So, i thought i might have more luck by asking.
