Semi dual boot lost sound

Postby warddb on Sat Jan 03, 2009 6:26 pm

On a wild hair I changed my hard drive back to one that winXP is on to watch a movie, Rambo, "digital Key" required media Player 11, good movie. Changed back HD boot up to Mint Felica did not want to reboot went through to Mint repair working fine now, but I have no sound in Mplayer, Rythmbox or firefox online radio. sound card is standard for a Dell Optiplex GT240 CPU.

THe New Beeee strikes again,

Sometimes Windows resets firmware in all sorts of devices.
I'd suggest a reboot into XP and immediately back into Mint. Hopefully that resets it
I see no reason for a "breakdown" of Mint....

Husse,
I was searching the forms, nothing has worked yet, found an old post about ICH8, this is what my out put was,
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82845 845 [Brookdale] Chipset Host Bridge (rev 03)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82845 845 [Brookdale] Chipset AGP Bridge (rev 03)
00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801 PCI Bridge (rev 12)
00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation 82801BA ISA Bridge (LPC) (rev 12)
00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801BA IDE U100 Controller (rev 12)
00:1f.2 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801BA/BAM USB Controller #1 (rev 12)
00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 82801BA/BAM SMBus Controller (rev 12)
00:1f.4 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801BA/BAM USB Controller #1 (rev 12)
00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 12)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 Pro Ultra TF
02:0c.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX/TX-M [Tornado] (rev 78)

I went int sounds to test and no sound, but when I boot up the system with the external speakers on I hear the signal light static but nothing else. I switched the hard drives the XP I worked changed back and mint 6 no sound.

Next suggestion,

Thank you

Dennis

I'll come back to you after I've reread another post - I get a feeling that the Brokdale chipset may be the problem
(82845 and 82801)

Husse,

You can mark this one off the List went to turn on CPU and the HD failed, all it will do is click. I am looking for a new HD.

Thank You,
