View Full Version : [ubuntu] I have a sound problem

March 26th, 2009, 10:58 PM

Above is a link that will take you to a description of my problem and what i have done so far without success. This is on my desktop Ubuntu 8.10 system.

Synopsis: I had sound with the 8.10 upgrade and it continues for several updates. Now my sound is "White noise" and that is it. When I am supposed to get sound, all I get is white noise. That includes doing the sound tests and with streaming, or videos.

I have tried several of the so called "fixes" on this forum without success.

If you go to the launchpad link abouve you will see that the Launchpad staff have not answered me yet with any solutions.

Please help, thanksw

Go here first and look in the section ALSA Trouble to find the directions for reinstalling ALSA.


If you still have no sound go to the top of the post for more help. If you have some sound somewhere, even just the startup sound go here to get your sound set up properly.
