RE: problem with sound on my father's computer

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Well there's another problem that goes along with this.  If the sound card
is on within the Bios and my father boots his computer up to Gnome when he
logs in the icons do not appear.  What might be causing this?  I was getting
a message about too many things being on a serial prot and that 8250 worked
too hard.  I pulled out one of the offending items a Windows modem.

I found out today again that many devices can share the same interrupt
under linux.  So I don't think this is your problem.

run aplay -lLv to see if there are any sound cards recognized and if
alsa has defined any aliases.

Then run 
aplay -D hw:0,0 some.wav
if there is at least one sound card.

If this works, you have a configuration/cabling issue.  Check that the
sound card you played is the one with speakers.  Then use an
application like xmms to change the sound to the appropriate driver and
play a song.

If you have no sound cards, it is possible that the sound is not
supported by alsa or it is turned off in the bios.
