Sound stopped working...

Post  Bob3 on Mon Jan 24, 2011 6:34 pm

OK, I broke my sound output, not sure when it happened but I suspect that the installation of a sound/video related program (or update) might've done it. Suspect

The system notifications (bells & whistles) are working OK so I know my speaker system isn't at fault.

Trouble is that I don't recall exactly when it croaked on me - MP3 files, youtube, DVDs etc have no sound output. Mad

I'm running XINE as a backend.

I stuck in a sound card (Aureal/Vortex) but same stuff. Evil or Very Mad
Any suggestions?

Make sure in the BIOS that the on board audio didn't get turned off. If your using the on board audio.

easy fix...

Post  Bob3 on Tue Jan 25, 2011 7:04 pm

*whew* That one turned out to be an easy fix; pulled up "settings" from the sound mixer in the menu bar, unmuted & maximized everything & sound magically appeared. What a Face
When I tried to eliminate selections & narrow things down, the sound went off so I guess this poor confoozed box likes to have all the settings enabled. Suspect
There are still *some* programs, like Amarok, that aren't playing nice but I can deal with that.
Now to test out flash player, etc etc etc.
Tanx for the suggestions! Cool
