Sound dead after install and update ! mint 13

Postby samisimoni on Fri Nov 30, 2012 2:32 pm

Hello guys ,
From what i have read throughout this month and from what i have experineced with linux , be it ubuntu or mint though its been said they are identical , doesnt matter , the SOUND still the sound ! fixing the this hurdel has been my pet peevs with linux .
when I run mint 13 live CD cinnamon 64 the sound works perfectly , but when i installed it and ran the updates I got blank sound !!

Steps I ve done :
reinstalled alsa , added some ppa , played with alsa.conf - pulse/ and all these tricks that worked with me in the past . my best result i made was to have the sound working in the front speakers and headphone in analog only after running pulseaudio volume control and toggling with hdmi chooser !! the moment i close pulseaudio volume control window , it goes mute .

my setup is pc , mother board is asus with realtek alc 887 vd .
I,m running out of love for this distro .... some help plzz ...
