    No Sound After Boot

    After installing and uninstalling a couple backports modules in synaptic and reinstalling almost every alsa package, I have no sound in ubuntu after the boot chime.

    In my sound preferences, No hardware is listed and only "dummy output" is available under the outputs option.

    This is quite frustrating, but I guess that if it isn't resolved by April 28th, then I can always do a clean install with 11.04.

    Re: No Sound After Boot

    Hi,

    Please check that you have installed the drivers properly of the sound now
    First you must find which model of sound card you use, so run this command:

    cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
    It will return model of your sound card(s), for example: "Codec: Realtek ALC260", so your sound card is ALC260.

    You should open a file in ALSA documentation. This file is here:

    /usr/share/doc/alsa-base/driver/HD-Audio-Models.txt.gz
    or if that file does not exist, try:

    /usr/share/doc/alsa-base/driver/ALSA-Configuration.txt.gz
    or check: HD-Audio-Models

    Re: No Sound After Boot

    Here are the results of the command:
    Code:
    jonathan@Aspire:~$ cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
    Codec: Realtek ALC271X
    I know that I need to find the appropriate description of my sound card, but the ALC271X is not listed in the documentation file.

    EDIT: I should mention I am using an Acer Aspire 5553G-5357

    Re: No Sound After Boot

    This is important:

    I have sound for system sounds (e.g. the ping when I get a message on empathy)
    I also have sound for flash applications on firefox (e.g. youtube)

    I DO NOT have sound for banshee, any mp3s I hover on for preview in nautilus, or on VLC or Totem.
    In sound preferences, I still have no devices recognized.

    This is quite a strange problem, and I feel it has something to do with the use of pulse, alsa, and oss in different ubuntu applications and one of those protocols isn't recognizing my sound card.

    Basically, alsa apps are working, but pulse not. Try deleting the user-specific pulse info and logging out/in.
    Code:
    cd
    rm -rf ~/.pulse*
    What would happen if your hard disk died right now?

    I ran the command and logged out and in. I still don't have sound in any of the applications I listed before, but now when I try to go to System > Preferences > Sound, it hangs on a window saying "Waiting for sound system to respond."

    If I try to go to Applications > Sound & Video > PulseAudio Volume Control, an error window comes up saying "Connection failed: Connection refused."

    Re: No Sound After Boot

    I would try starting pulseaudio from terminal and see what it says:
    Code:
    pulseaudio -v
    You could you also try creating another user and seeing if that one has issues or purging pulseaudio packages and reinstalling them.

    Which pulseaudio packages would you recommend I try purging? I will create a new user now and report back with how well that worked.

    EDIT:
    The new user did not have any sound either.

    Re: No Sound After Boot

    Today I purged and reinstalled a few pulse packages. pulseaudio is running at boot, so I killed the process (still only registering 'dummy output') and ran pulseaudio -v again. Here were my results.

    This is the part that jumps out to me:

    Can't find much with google though.
    What would happen if your hard disk died right now?
