No Sound Dell Latitude D420

Postby tiddlr on Tue Mar 31, 2009 7:24 am

Hopefully someone can help...

I'm really liking Linux Mint (after been a long Ubuntu user).

Basically, I have sound on my Dell Latitude D420 with WinXP.
I don't have sound with Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora 10.

I'd really appreciate some assistance here.

I also realise I've not given alot of information. Let me know what I need to add.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I'll also add I did have sound prior to Ubuntu 8.04.

I've also tried to fix this myself over the last few days with no positive results.

I also am in need of a solution on how to enable sound, it's gotten more annoying the longer I go without sound. hopefully someone can help us out.

I thought I'd take a stab at this but if I am way off or no help at all, please accept my apologies.

I am only posting because I think I have read this question before on Ubuntu forums. The answer is often to check the 'Mixer' or the graphic equalizer. In KDE, it's KMix but I am sure that Gnome has something similar. I would check the equalizer/mixer to see if sound is muted.

Also, maybe post what your internal sound card is (in the D420). You can probably figure it out (if you don't know it already) by typing the command, 'lspci.'

Does your sound work if you run a Mint Live CD? If so, maybe something got corrupted? I know some Debian distros have alsaconf so what is Mint's equivalent sound configuration software tool? (I'm asking Mint experts. ;- ) ).
