Sound Issue

Postby thebrassthief on Tue Jul 14, 2009 11:56 pm

I'm having a problem with my sound on my laptop (an EEE 1000H). Nothing about the sound is awkward or off, but it is very, very quite, even on max volume. The last distro I was using before Mint, Crunchbang, didn't give me this issue.

Any ideas?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The usual answer is to open a terminal, type alasamixer and hit enter. Then make sure that PCM, Master and Front are all at maximum.

When I type alasamixer I get "command not found".

Sorry, my dyslexia got the better of me there... :wink:
I meant alsamixer.

You could also right click the volume icon > Open Volume Control and do it in there.

Yeah, alsamixer worked and it was the PCM. Every other volume slider I knew about was on full.
