    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    smbrow14 -yes that looks like a problem, However, I thought snd-seq-dummy was not loaded. Check in you home folder for any .asoundrc file and delete it. Check your alsamixer settings as well. If all that does not wor, file a bug at https://bugtrack.alsa-project.org.

    Also a little help. How do I get the terminal output into a little text box so that it is easier to read when I post questions?

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Have a look at alsamixer. Make sure that you are changing the settings for via82xx not via82xx-modem.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    I checked the speaker connection and it was fine. I also booted into windows to make sure the speakers work (they do). I rebooted into Ubuntu but I still didn't get any sound. However, messing around with the alsamixer settings you mentioned fixed it. I have to have everything turned up to 100% to get the sound at a comfortable level (maybe I'm just deaf . Thanks a bunch for the tutorial and assistance!

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    I have lost my sound, and I don't know why. The only thing that I've done is apply the regular updates via Synaptic, including a few new kernels recently.

    I'm not sure whether my sound card is detected or not. First, I have an ASUS Pundit P1 with Nvidia chipset, and the sound works fine in my Windows partition. Sounds was working fine under Dapper as well until a few days ago. When I do "lspci -v" the only thing related to sound that I see is this:

    0000:00:10.1 0403: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
    Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.: Unknown device 81cb
    Flags: bus master, 66MHz, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 209
    Memory at fe028000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
    Capabilities: <available only to root>

    but when I do "aplay -l", I get:

    aplay: device_list:221: no soundcards found...

    Also, in the GNOME panel, there is a red crossbar icon over the speaker icon. If I click on this, I get an error message saying that no GStreamer plugins/devices are installed, but all of the gstreamer packages are installed. (Again, the sound was working fine a few days ago.) As far as I can tell, nothing that I've read in this thread seems to apply to my situation. I'd really like to avoid having to reinstall gdm, etc. Can anyone help?

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    I have a problem with sound. I have a Creative Vibra 128 card. It used to work perfectly. Now, it may work and it may not.

    I guess the problem is that something is occupying the sound card, because when I am in the "sound is present" time, everything runs perfectly, but when I am in the "no sound" time, a program like Beep media player says that my card may be occupied.

    Note that this applies to all sounds, including startup and shutdown sounds. I have all volumes maxed up in the volume control. And I have all the codecs.

    It's just weird!

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    How this tread made me going trough numerous garbage-bags at my garbage container...

    The sound of my seperate desktop speakers were lousy, as if someone put them to loud for a long time. So I thought: well, trough away and buy new ones! But it was sunday, so I decided to use my stereo as a temporary sound system. Again the same problem. Meanwhile my wife just put all the garbage in the container. I tried every cable and stereo connections but..nothing..

    Then I happened to come across this thread and saw something about Salsa mixer. Guess what... I reconfigured the salsa settings and "voila" perfect sound.

    But having then a set of apparently perfect desktop speakers in 'one' of the garbage bags you can guess what I had to do next ....

    Anyway I saved some money with this thread but boy you don't want to know the details on that... My children had a laugh though..

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    ivotedforkodos - I would try the *fresh* kernel install guide in your case. You might have to reinstall gdm, but that it not too difficult.

    Amorphous_Snake - sound like an ALSA/OSS problem. Make sure that ALL your applications use alsa if possible. That includes your system sound settings, beep media player, and the rest. If one application is using oss, then it will block access to soundcard for everything else until it is closed properly.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Thanks LordRaiden, but how can I do what you said? I am new to Linux. Can you please explain it and show me how to do it step by step.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    It really depends upon the application. I think for the system sound, it is something like System --> Sound, then under engine, pick ALSA. For a media player, it would be something like Configure --> Engine --> output then pick ALSA.
