    No Audio With Asus P5NE-SLI (ALC883)

    Ok this is really frustrating me. I can't get audio no matter what I try. Everything seems to look ok but no audio makes it to the speakers. Works fine in Windows BTW. So I know the MB is working fine. I see online there is all sorts of issues with ALC883. Can anyone point me to the right area to get this resolved. I am at my wits end. I have tried the alsa.conf file and tried various model= variables, and none have worked. Please someone help me get this fixed! Thanks.

    Hi robn30

    Couple of quick questions to get started:

    1. What version of Ubuntu are you running? 32 or 64 bits??
    2. Which Windows version are you running? 32 or 64 bits??

    Is it this right?


    Realtek ALC883 6 -Channel CODEC
    Coaxial / Optical S/PDIF out ports
    Support Jack-Sensing, Enumeration, Multi-streaming


    The specifications works great, is this web right?

    I am using 32 bit for both. Everything else you said is also correct about my MB. Also to add to this issue, I also have a old Sound Blaster Live card and have installed that in the PCI slot. This card will not work either. It works fine in another machine running Ubuntu 11.10 and the alsa.conf files look the same. Futhermore I even reinstalled the machine with just the SB Live card enabled and the onboard audio disabled and the sound was working perfect during 11.10 installation. Then upon first boot into Ubuntu I had no sound once again. This is really crazy stuff. For sound to be working during the installation process but then to break after installation is complete, its crazy. The alsa.conf file even has the correct driver identified as emu10k1. Not sure where to go from here. I am becoming very frustrated and am wanting to throw in the towel on Ubuntu, although I love it.

    Also just to add I did a lspci -v and here is the result showing the 2 instances of SB Live

    03:06.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1 (rev 0a)
    Subsystem: Creative Labs CT4780 SBLive! Value
    Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 16
    I/O ports at ac00 [size=32]
    Capabilities: <access denied>
    Kernel driver in use: EMU10K1_Audigy
    Kernel modules: snd-emu10k1

    03:06.1 Input device controller: Creative Labs SB Live! Game Port (rev 0a)
    Subsystem: Creative Labs Gameport Joystick
    Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32
    I/O ports at a800 [size=8]
    Capabilities: <access denied>
    Kernel driver in use: Emu10k1_gameport
    Kernel modules: emu10k1-gp

    Not sure if that helps anything but I figured I would include it. Also did aplay -l and the following was the result.

    Latest update. After realizing that sound works during installation it had to be an update that was fragging it. So I installed Ubuntu without any extras at all and sound worked. As soon as I installed updates again no audio. I think it was after the 280 updates plus the NVidia update that broke the audio. I am ready to throw this damn machine out the window and forget about Ubuntu unless someone can enlighten me to what the freaking issue is. Again I now know why Windows was created. If your not a programmer or Unix Guru then Ubuntu is going to kick your a**.

    Bump. Still can't get it working. Of the 280 updates which one is going to cause this issue. Also if I have not mentioned yet, I can also use the Try Ubuntu Option from my flash drive and everything works perfect there as well. So it is definitely an update issue that is breaking sound. Out of 5 installations this is the only one causing this type of issue. I guess using Ubuntu with ALC883 NVidia MCP51 chips is problematic.

    Unfortunately I don't have the machine here right now but as soon as I get back to it I will run that command and post back. I very much appreciate the info and hopefully it can help me get this thing up and running eventually. Thanks.
