View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sound broken after update

April 18th, 2009, 09:25 PM
I recently installed updates for my Hardy Heron version of Ubuntu. I did a system restart as required, but when it booted up again, i had absolutely no sound. The volume control on my taskbar has the muted picture, but the sound isn't muted. When I try opening volume control, it says "No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found."

Any help here?

Please include the output of lspci -v; no one is going to be able to help you diagnose this without knowing more about the hardware involved.

However, it does seem to be a common problem. I had the same fault when I upgraded from 7.10 to 8.04 on an AMD 64 ATI MB with onboard sound & graphics. I too asked the question, but received no replies. I then went into Synaptic Manager and deleted the most recent Linux kernel ( Sound now okay, system says I still running Hardy Heron.
