View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sound quit working; OK under Windows

Anybody got a tip on how to troubleshoot lost audio?
Works under DOS windows and has been working under Ubuntu for a long time.
Running sound check under Preferences> Sound results in hearing static on speakers. I only get a low decibel static sound when Ubuntu boots up and I log on.

ed@House:~$ aplay -l

Is it an ALSA or PulseAudio problem?
Are these still pertinent:

There are two systems that must work in order for Ubuntu to play sound, Alsa and PulseAudio.

To fix alsa problems follow this guide:
