View Full Version : [ubuntu] sound problems

hi im having sound problems
when i start up my computer into ubuntu i get that drumming sound at the login screen, but it comes blasting out of my built in speakers which im sure my whole building can hear...
also, i have to enter in the terminal:
alsamixer -D hw:Headset
and increase it every time i log in to be able to hear any sound through my headset
is there any way to correct these problems?
or should i just uninstall and reinstall? (i used the windows installer aka wubi to put ubuntu on here)

saw a similar post elsewhere and they suggested to turn off onboard sound in the bios (to keep that drumming sound from blasting through my built in speakers)

there is no such option in the bios!!!
