View Full Version : [ubuntu] No sound, device not detected

I lost sound after restarting, I had sound, then on my reboot... No sound. I tried to google the problem and ran the common tasks of removing and re-installing "alsa-base" and "pulseaudio" using apt-get in terminal. But after trying all this I have now lost the volume control at the top right of my screen :(

I have no idea what the issue is, in System > Preferences > Sound I get nothing under Hardware, nothing under Input, "Dummy Output" under Output, and nothing special under Applications.

Here is the results of commands in terminal which I have commonly see people been asked to do:


sudo aplay -l

aplay: device_list:235: no soundcards found...



sudo find /lib/modules/`uname -r` | grep snd

The only thing I think that could of triggered everything to mess up is some mods I made to to the alsa-base.conf file - What I did to it I can't remember, But I have tried to remove these two lines of code at the end of it, saved it, restarted my computer and still no audio.

Help Please :(
Oh, I am using Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick) 64Bit
Kernel Linux 2.6.35-22-Generic
GNOME 2.32.0

Try Fix your sound! in my signature.
Then use Post-Fix your sound! in my signature.
It should solve your problem.

Sound is working after much toying with the CPanel tool... The sound is horrible and doesn't go up to loud, too confusing etc etc.
This is not solved.

However I would prefer to be kept on ALSA, I turned everything up in the "ossxmixer" and the sound is stupidly quiet. and the interface to adjust volume is too confusing.

Is there anyway I could remove OSS and go back to ALSA? I did not make any hardware changes or updates that caused ALSA to suddenly become incompatible... It worked just wasn't configured correctly.

Is there anyway I could somehow rollback to ALSA defaults without a fresh install of Ubuntu ?
My final solution would be freshly install Ubuntu as not having continuing to use my failure and default audio setup is a priority.

Thanks :)

I websearched to explanation of which alsa files to use to look up my card identifier and then put that in /etc/modules some file. Then every so often I have to manually sudo alsa force-reload. That ain't right.

What i did to ruin audio after fresh ub natty install was to search in synaptic and install 'codec' and 'audio' and 'video' stuff.
