Linuxhelp _ Hardware Support _ Sound Issues

Posted by: Tess Apr 26 2011, 04:15 PM

I have the opposite problem of some of the folks posting here about sound issues... mine is, I can't get my computer to mute, or adjust the volume. And it is REALLY loud.

I have tried a few things on my own (I'm not 100% familiar with Linux, but I've tried what I knew I could without breaking my poor, retarded computer)...

I have tried enabling the sound mixer, I have tried adjusting the volume controls and preferences, and I have even toggled the BIOS to disable audio (however, as you can probably imagine, this actually disabled ALL sounds on my computer, not just the ones I wanted gone). So, basically I either get no sound on my machine at all, or I get REALLY loud sounds on my computer.

I have found a temporary solution, which is to plug my headphones into the computer headphone jack, BUT, alas, it is not a complete fix. sad.gif

Anyone willing to help me defeat the evil volume beast?

What linux distribution/version are you running?
Also need some info on your computer hardware.

What linux distribution/version are you running?

My computer runs Ubuntu, Version 2.22.3, build date 7.9.2008 (the little bugger claims it does not have enough room on it to update to the new version, and I've tried to delete what I can to make room, but it still likes being a little pain)

Also need some info on your computer hardware.

I'm not sure how to give you this particular information. Could you be more specific?

Also, I have to be very aware of where buttons are on this, because I use a netbook, and it likes to cut parts of menus off, but not give me the option to scroll (I have also already tried to change the screen resolution)

Thanks for any and all help - I apologize for taking so long to get back to you on this... crazy schedules, whoo...

If you purchased the computer, make and model number. If is isn't anything off the shelf then the motherboard make/model.
Also post the specific output of the command lspci that shows the information for your audio chipset.

Also there is no ubuntu version 2.22.3. If the build date is 2008 then you are running a very old version. Post the output of the command
cat /etc/lsb-release. Unfortunately, I do not suggest upgrading. It would be best to reinstall with the latest version.
