then output
and disabled and re-enabled it to test if that was my internal speakers of which the sound was coming from apparently it was and re enabling it just messed up the sound now when ever i go to watch a video online i have no sound, when i boot up, i have sound you know the beep and things that you hear when you turn on your computer,im not sure what you need exactly but this is some basic info maybe it'll help you try to help me fix this issue,

Hi Zerorebels.

In Terminal type alsamixer and see if your sound card is selected and if any inputs or outputs are muted.


BTW. On my AMD notebook (an Acer Aspire 5517-1536) the audio won't function properly unless there's a Wi-Fi adaptor plugged into one of the Acer's two USB 2.0 ports at boot time.

It's the last AMD/ATI-based product I'll ever buy. :P
