problem with sound

Postby paourismp on Wed Oct 29, 2008 8:33 pm

Hi!

I am having an issue with sound using Linux Mint Elyssa KDE. I am hearing some constant noise crackling in the background even i am not running an application.
My system is a gigabyte GA-M750SLI-DS4 (NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI), amd athon 64 x2 6400+, evga e-geforce 8800 gt 512mb, geil black dragon 2x1gb 800mhz cl5, leadtek winfast dtv2000h.

Can anyone give a solution?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I have had this issue when running KDE in general. There are settings in the volume control applet, I think that you need to turn off the mic volume(mute it), regardless of if there is a mic connected or not, this solved the issue for me. Also try adjusting the pcm, and master volumes to see if it helps with the noise.

edit: k-sound i think is the applet's right name, (I'm a gnome guy mostly, I just tinker with KDE)

It is normally the PCM volume that has to be made 100% to get sound working again.
some how it gets lowered or set to 0 and sound is gone.

thanks for the answers
i try all that you said but the problem stays
the sound is like when i playing a bad audio cd
i have the same issue with gnome environment, ubuntu, mandriva
i must say that i hear it only when i am playing audio or video files and not all the time (sorry for previous post)

if it's happeneing in all distros, and all WM's, then I think that is an issue with your sound card. I wish I could help more, but that is all I can think that it could be. Good luck.
