Linuxhelp _ Hardware Support _ No Sound Produced

Posted by: Storyteller6666 Jun 8 2009, 04:44 AM

I run Suse Linux 10.3. It detects the soundcard and automatically installs it. It reports that everything is fine. But produces no sound. The soundcard is incorporated on the motherboard. I am at a loss as what settings or whatever to change. Any ideas? Please?

Knowing how to ask a question is half the battle. Without knowing anything about the hardware or the audio chipset or what you are trying to do it is impossible to provide any ideas or help.
Post the output of the command
lspci

Have you checked the audio mixer to see if the volume control is not muted and the levels are at least midscale?

Yes. The mixer and volume control says it is sending sound out, and plays the test signal to the headphones / speakers. No sound comes out. I have tested the speakers and headphones on the same hardware but running Win XP and they work no problem.
