Ubuntu sound problem

Can't get the sound to work on Ubuntu, I tried everything I know, pls help me!!! After install Ubuntu I can't listen anything.
I changed the options in "Sound Preferences" (without understanding what I was doing) and then I realized I had the pc speaker out in "Volume Control". I changed this but I still can't listen nothing.
I did this

but still nothing.

I also followed this

but only step 1 and 6 (alsamixer)

Ok here what you need to do, when you start your pc or laptop, you need to press the escape button (ESC) it might be the delete button depending on how old is you pc or laptop, and change the KERNEL to the previous version, as it seem that one of the latest kernel i cannot remember if it is the 2.24.18 ? as a bug about the sound. so what i did was to reverse to the previous KERNEL.
So do it and enjoy
PS: please keep in mind that any spcifique setting like your "preload" or "prelink" or the tweak of your profile "preload" will be lost so you will have to do it again.
Hope this answer your trouble.

try with liveUSB, you don't have to install anything to your computer and you can check all features and compatibilities. But on my laptop almost everything worked with backlight and fn keys.

I cannot listen to anything


Check that the sound is not muted from audio properties on control panel.

If it is not that you may need to reinstall the driver.

I have a single installation of Ubuntu 11.10. How do I remove it and install Windows 7? Have tried from the Windows boot disk but I dont know what my drive letter is as Ubuntu does not name it????


Hi,
You can use the windows disk to over-write the ubuntu installation. Just boot from the windows disk, and when it asks where to install, tell it to format the disk and create a partition from the unpartitioned space. Windows will format the disk and you should be good to go. Keep in mind, everything on the disk will be lost.

Ubuntu Sound Problem


MerryAnn, it sounds like any time your CPU does heavy work, you hear sounds..kinda like a buzzing? I would say off hand you have an open input turned up in the mixer.

Rredbare, do you dual boot? and what audio chip or model do you have?

Ubuntu sound problem


Hi Josh

First of all check system setting.

It seems like your modules are not loaded, if you just installed, I recommend you to
re-install Ubuntu, if this is not the case, try to run -

sudo apt-get -f install

If everything fails, try this - sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils start

I've tried to install ubuntu+xubuntu on i686 duron 900? 256ram-


Not exactly sure what you are saying... but you DO have a Duron 700? That is 32-bit. No x64 for you!

If that is not what you're saying. You are saying that you received an Xubuntu alternate distro from Ubuntu? Ubuntu comes in prepackaged distributions for i686 (i386, i486)-32bit and x64-64bit.

You can download the Xubuntu for free at
http://www.xubuntu.org/get

Select the Hardy Heron i686 version. When you install, the installer "should" select the best kernel for your system.
