    12.04 - Dummy Sound - No Sound Card detected

    I'm on ubuntu 12.04

    For some reason, the sound output changed to "dummy output".

    I have no idea why.

    Code:
    me@me-GeForce6100PM-M2:~$ hwinfo --sound
    > hal.1: read hal dataprocess 7334: arguments to dbus_move_error() were incorrect, assertion "(dest) == NULL || !dbus_error_is_set ((dest))" failed in file ../../dbus/dbus-errors.c line 282.
    This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.

    I installed pavucontrol

    I ran it, and on the configuration tab, it says 'No cards available for configuration'.

    I have also tried to enter "alsamixer" into the terminal and I get the following. cannot open mixer: No such file or directory. I also tried to run /usr/sbin/alsaconf and it came back with bash: /usr/sbin/alsaconf: No such file or directory. I finally tried "pulseaudio", and I got this. E: [pulseaudio] pid.c: Daemon already running. E: [pulseaudio] main.c: pa_pid_file_create() failed

    Basically the soundcard is not detected. me@me-GeForce6100PM-M2:~$ aplay -l aplay: device_list:252: no soundcards found.... I then typed in lspci -v and got this... 00:05.0 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation MCP61 High Definition Audio (rev a2) Subsystem: NVIDIA Corporation Device cb84 Flags: 66MHz, fast devsel, IRQ 22 Memory at fe024000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K] Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel

    Finally,

    Code:
    me@me-GeForce6100PM-M2:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
    --- no soundcards ---
    Please help!

    Thanks so much.

    I hope it's not a hardware failure

    Code:
    [   16.240020] hda-intel: no codecs found!
    Hmm. That's not good. First thing I would try is latest driver: https://code.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-a...ecise1_all.deb
    Install that .deb and then reboot. If that doesn't work, try resetting the CMOS: http://download.ecsusa.com/dlfileecs...%282_0A%29.pdf

    I installed the deb file, rebooted.

    Still says dummy output, but on the applications tab, it recognises Chromium when a youtube video is playing and it has a volume adjuster.

    Still no sound though

    Here's the new alsainfo

    http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=59...6455710026c017

    If you don't have any other ideas after this small revelation, then how do I reset the CMOS? It's a hefty document.

    I installed the deb file, rebooted.
    The alsainfo still shows the stock driver...

    There's a red(pink?) jumper on the lower right of the mobo near the SATA ports. Look at the Table of Contents and read the instructions.

    Hello, for some reason, I hadn't used my computer for 2-3 weeks.

    I logged on, there was some error message saying you are running in low graphics mode, then I just selected the option where the default settings are used.

    All is fine with regards to the graphics.

    However, there is a change in the situation re: sound.

    It no longer says Dummy sound,

    In the output tab it has two options
    1) Digital output (S/PDIF) built in audio
    2) Analogue output built in audio.

    But, there's still no sound.

    The alsainfo file is above.

    Thanks a lot for your help!
