no sound on Dell Vostro 2510

Postby pinghacker on Mon Dec 22, 2008 10:46 pm

I installed Felicia with mint4win on my new Vostro 2510 and can't get any sound.

Any ideas?

Not quite sure if there is any difference with a normal install...
Check all settings for sound
Start with a double click on the speaker next to the clock and check that nothing is muted
Then in Control Center > Sounds you can test the "System sounds" and finally every application has it's own settings
If no success run lspci in a terminal and post the result (right click to copy)

I have tried a few things including removing pulse and lastly a guide I found to fix the pulse implementation in Ubuntu. No luck thus far.

ICH8
Well known Intel sound with some problems
Here is a link to a solution that helps for ICH8
viewtopic.php?f=48&t=17801&p=107982&hilit=ich8+alsa#p107982
Of course you don't use model=acer - rather model=dell or model=auto
There are variations on this - search the forum for ICH8 sound and you will find them
Don't know why ICH8 gives strange problems for some, but in most cases it's solved and works well
