Sound - Very Low Volume In Gloria 7

Postby DasFox on Mon Jan 25, 2010 3:59 am

I'm really bummed, the sound is very low on my laptop running Gloria. When I watch videos it's really low, like being on a setting of 3, even with it all the way turned up. I have the Pulse Audio controls turned up and also in the System - Preferences - Sound, I played with switching around from my device to oss and alsa and autodetect with no luck either.

What can I do to get better sound volume?

Here is lspci showing my devices:

Ok I forgot to run 'alsamixer' and turn the volumes up, also I installed the latest drivers from Karmic.

alsa-base_1.0.20+dfsg-1ubuntu5_all.deb
alsa-utils_1.0.20-2ubuntu6_amd64.deb

So far the sound is a lot better, I think I'm good now... :)
