No sound on new system (internal speaker)

#1 Postby eppoh » Mon Jul 09, 2012 9:04 pm

bought a new (old) pc with and HDA Intel (AD198x Analog ) chip. Running M11 live first to check for issues and get no sound. Checked all the Kmix settings and volumes.

where to go from here? I want to get this resolved before I install it to hard drive.

It will be much simpler to troubleshoot and fix after install.

Just sayin'.

Okay, thanks all. After some thought I plugged in a set of phones and I hear Tchaikovsky quite well. I do need to get the internal speaker going though.

Can't find a setting in Kmix that would change that.

You don't mention if you ran alsamixer and turned everything up there.

Thanks for reminding me. Interstingly, the Headphone, Front and S/PDIF d and S/PDIF P aer all at zero and they will not increase.

BTW, I did install M11 to the hard drive.

We have a number of solutions listed in the Wiki:

I use alsaconf first (see Wiki note on how to obtain from CR), then turn to the suggestions about specifying the card in

Code: Select all

Production: 4.2.0-0.bpo.1-amd64, MX-15 RC1, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, Kingston SSD 120 GB and WesternDigital 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 3.16-0-4-686-pae. MX-15, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB

Since all the sound is working now except for the internal speaker, I am hesitant to do any of that, since nothing in the wiki addresses that issue specifically. I had looked at it before.
I would attempt something that works specifically for the internal speaker, but can't find anything.

Have you checked to see if there is a setting in your BIOS? Or does it work with other operating systems?
Yes, even I am dishonest. Not in many ways, but in some. Forty-one, I think it is.

The bios was the second thing I checked. Dual booting windows, it works okay,
