Question about Canonical Ltd. Ubuntu

1 Answer

I've installed Ubuuntu 8.10 on my asus laptop. I'm getting sound from my speakers, but when I plug in a speaker into the integrated soundcard, the speakers stop working(obviously) but I'm not getting any sound from the speakers either. The sound card worked on xp. Does anyone have a clue how to fix this? Thanks.

Try going to the audio control panel (speaker icon at the top right in panel) and see if some/or all of the controls are muted.

My ASUS K50IJ sound comes from only one speaker. I've tryed everything and the balance seems ok


One of the speakers failed or it has a bad connection.Most likely the non working speaker will need to be replaced.

Why no volume is coming in my laptop


We need to know the make and model of the laptop and, preferably, the make and model of the sound card. However, if you get no sound from the laptop speakers or through the headphone out port then there is an indication that your soundcard is failing or the correct driver is not present on the system.
If you get sound from the headphone port, with headphones plugged in, but not the speakers then the soundcard is fine and the laptop speakers are failing.

Hey, I've got an HP Compaq D530 SFF desktop machine whose sound card uses the SoundMAX drivers. The problem is that when I connect earphones/headphones on the front panel, and try to listen to music or...


moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngYour front panel audio / microphone connector has an AC97 connector inside which looks like this:

It is probably plugged into the motherboard somewhere. Try plugging it into the soundcard directly if it is in the motherboard. Or vice versa if it is plugged into the soundcard.

How can I get the sound back on my computer


Check your headset connection. If you get sound there then check your speakers on another computer or try a different set of speakers on your computer. If you don't get sound out of the headset and your speakers work on another computer and another set of speakers don't work on your computer then it's your soundcard drivers.
If you don't have the drivers on disk go to the manufacturers website i.e. www.hp.com, www.dell.com, or whatever you computer manufacturer is. Go to the support page and select downloads. Download and install your driver and you should have your sound back.
If you don't have an integrated soundcard then download the drivers for your card and if that doesn't work replace your soundcard. Let me know how it goes.

What is the sound card and where is it


The sound card is more often than not integrated into your motherboard, check your device manager and you will probably have a realtek sound card. If so it is integrated, the only ones that arent are the Turtle Beach and Creative Labs Soundblaster models which are PCI expansion cards plugged into the motherboard. Ive never heard of manufactured computers using a soundcard that isnt integrated unless you paid for that upgrade.

You need to install the drivers for your soundcard. Try to find out what model of soundcard do you have and what version of Windows and try to search for the specific driver on the internet.
You can try these websites:
http://www.driverguide.com/
http://www.soft32.com/c/Windows/Drivers/2-52.html
Here's a tutorial on how to install a driver: http://www.totallydrivers.com/resources/directions_installation.asp
If you still can't hear sound try these steps, maybe it's not from your soundcard:
-Plug in the speakers
-Turn on the speakers.
-Turn-up the volume in Windows and on the speakers.
-Uncheck the mute checkbox in sound control panel.
-Verify a sound should be playing. In the Control Panel, play some Windows sounds. Play a music CD.
-Plug the speakers into the right hole on the sound card.
-Are the speakers plugged into the sound card and not the MODEM?
-Is the sound card installed correctly?
-Is the power converter for the speakers plugged into a wall outlet or surge protector?
-Is the power converter plugged into the speakers?
-Try other speakers or a head phone?
