    Sound gone after installing a graphic card with HDMI

    Hi,

    I have the following mainboard:
    M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3
    with integrated sound that was working
    ALC892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC

    After I installed a graphic card my sound is gone, that card is
    GeForce GT 220 with HDMI

    I am running Ubuntu 12.04 with KDE installed on top.

    I have searched the forum and I can even see the bar moving when I say something in the microphone but I do not hear a beep.

    Can someone please give me a guide on how to tackle the problem, I know how to give commands in the cli and am not afraid of changing files in /etc but I just cannot get a hold on sound.

    Kind regards,

    You may have to open terminal and start alsamixer and/ or in your sound settings enable S/PDIF audio.

    Thaks for the fast reaction!

    I had the alsamixer started and saw 00 at S/PDIF and S/PDIF Default I changed it to full volume, no effekt

    Card 0 is internal
    Card 1 is HDMI (Nvidia)

    at settings:
    Digital output S/PDIF is on internal audio
    Analog Headphone is on internal audio
    Analog out is on internal audio
    (mind you, translated from german)

    the only stange thing I found in the mixer that
    /proc/asound/oss/devices does not show a single line

    Could that be the problem?

    This probably a bit related(maybe not) to your issue, but I had a problem in xbmc where the sound wouldn't work at all, went ahead and installed alsa, rebooted the box and bam!
    in your case, either reinstall alsa or install pulse (log out/log back in and try, if not, reboot).
    good luck

    Hi,

    I did install alsa new some time ago but I will do that again as soon as I have some time. Who knows . . .

    Well,

    I installed ALSA new but no effect.

    Does anyone know a step by step howto through which one can checkout the sound-seettings?

    I have found all kind of good advice but with very different solutions and no one seem to tackle the problem I have.

    I know how to fix this ... I think I had a similar problem. Run kMix from the application launcher (you are using KDE, so it should be built in), and then click 'Settings' and then 'Select Master Channel' and then choose 'Built-In ...' to choose your motherboard audio. Hope this helps!

    Re: Sound gone after installing a graphic card with HDMI

    are you wanting the sound to go thru your HDMI port or are you only using your nvidia card for it's graphics?

    I recently installed a 8400 GS and had the same issue. it has to do with setting the correct sound card as the default one. follow "Ad" here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/So...eshootingGuide

    and make sure within pavucontrol everything is set correctly and alsamixer has volumes unmuted and turned up

    Hi,

    That is exactly what I want.
    "or are you only using your nvidia card for it's graphics"

    Sorry RitzBitzn, that did not do it so I will have to try
    Dannyboy79's solution.

    Thank you for responding,
    kind regards,

    Re: Sound gone after installing a graphic card with HDMI

    Hi

    I see in the alsamixer S/PDIF and S/PDIF default both at 00,
    but I do not know how to raise the levels, the pointerkeys do not work there.

    What could be the cause?


    Here is a listing of the shell-commands:

    jan@Linux01:~$ aplay -l
    **** Liste der Hardware-Geräte (PLAYBACK) ****
    Karte 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], Gerät 0: ALC892 Analog [ALC892 Analog]
    Sub-Geräte: 1/1
    Sub-Gerät #0: subdevice #0
    Karte 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], Gerät 1: ALC892 Digital [ALC892 Digital]
    Sub-Geräte: 1/1
    Sub-Gerät #0: subdevice #0
    Karte 1: NVidia [HDA NVidia], Gerät 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
    Sub-Geräte: 1/1
    Sub-Gerät #0: subdevice #0
    Karte 1: NVidia [HDA NVidia], Gerät 7: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
    Sub-Geräte: 1/1
    Sub-Gerät #0: subdevice #0
    Karte 1: NVidia [HDA NVidia], Gerät 8: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
    Sub-Geräte: 1/1
    Sub-Gerät #0: subdevice #0
    Karte 1: NVidia [HDA NVidia], Gerät 9: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
    Sub-Geräte: 1/1
    Sub-Gerät #0: subdevice #0

    jan@Linux01:~$ lspci -nn | grep '\[04[80][13]\]'
    00:14.2 Audio device [0403]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) [1002:4383] (rev 40)
    01:00.1 Audio device [0403]: NVIDIA Corporation High Definition Audio Controller [10de:0be2] (rev a1)

    So both are "seen".

    just made a /etc/sound/asound.conf

    pcm.!default {
    type plug slave.pcm {
    type hw card 0 device 1
    }
    }

    rebooted, but after a sharp tic at boottime, no sound.



    Kind regards,
    Jan
