Quick disclaimer: English is not my first language.
So, I was thinking of installing Linux Mint KDE on my laptop, downloaded the iso and prepared the USB Drive for it.
Before installing, however, I decided to play around a bit to see if everything was working. I soon learned there was no sound. Not from the built-in speakers, anyway. If I plugged an earphone in the jack, it would output sound through the earphones just fine.
I tried googling around, but found nothing that helped. I was told to open up Pulse Audio Volume control and to tinker with the settings, but that didn't help. Alsamixer didn't help either.
The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 14r 5473. I think I should paste the output of dmesg here:
It -seems- to be detecting all the hardware just fine, but I still get no sound.
