    Sound problems.

    Hi, I hope ive not posted this in the wrong place. Im totally new to Linux but im getting the hang of it slowly all except having no sound. Ive been browsing your forums for the last 3 hours trying all sorts of things to get my sound to work.

    When i type lspci i get;

    00:00.0 RAM memory: NVIDIA Corporation MCP61 Host Bridge (rev a1)
    00:01.0 ISA bridge: NVIDIA Corporation MCP61 LPC Bridge (rev a2)

    02:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation High Definition Audio Controller (rev a1)

    So im guessing that means my sound card is recognised...

    Ive checked to make sure im not muted.

    Ive added a line of code at the bottom of the text editor when I did something in terminal which i saw in someones post on here

    Ive tried
    sudo apt-get remove --purge alsa-base sudo apt-get remove --purge pulseaudio sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get install alsa-base sudo apt-get install pulseaudio

    just feeling pretty lost at the moment. if anyone can help im be grateful

    Hi ,
    can you post here , where did you wrote that line and what line is this ?

    Did you wrote it to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf ?

    Try this command from terminal
    Code:
    sudo alsa force-reload
    and see if sound works .

    Also give the output of
    Code:
    cat /proc/asound/card0/codec* | grep Codec
    And please , when you post here output of commands , Copy the entire out put and paste between [CODE] brackets by clicking on # at the top of the message pane.
    Thanks.
