Sound problem on Lenovo W530 -- LMDE edition

Postby blackbear on Mon Nov 19, 2012 11:58 am

Hi all,
sorry for any annoyance..I am pretty new with Linux Mint LMDE but I 'm an old Debian user (since 10 years)
LinuxMint provides me a great experience with my new Lenovo W530 laptop, it runs well excepted the sound support ...
No sound at all, I checked (double or triple check) the mixer settings and channels are not mute...

This is the lspci output (|grep -i audio)
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 7 Series/C210 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)
01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation Device 0e1b (rev a1)

(lshw does not give much more details)

I m stuck with that problem for a while and I hope you to give me some clues

Thanks for your support
Regards
jerome

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi,

Same problem here with the w530.
I'm using mint 14 w/cinnamon, i have sound when i plug in the headphones... Even when mint starts up the speakers plays the initial sounds... after this the laptop speakers stays completely muted... it looks like a conflict somewere... In alsamixer the volume settings are all ok, but the problem remains.

Did someone find a workaround\solution for this?

Thanks

I recently installed the latest version of LMDE to my HP DV7-7023CL

I ran into the same problem trying to get my sound to work. What I found was the Gnome Manager was setting the volume to mute independently of the ALSA mixer control on the desktop. Try starting up Sound Recorder from the "Sound & Video" section and open up "Volume Control" under "File". Then reset the output volume. What annoys me is this happens randomly and even chopped me off during a Skype conversation

I'm also having problems with the mouse buttons going out and text jumping during typing

Weird

I just installed Mint on a Lenovo W530 and I had the same problem : sound in earphones but not in speakers.

What I did to fix it :
- launched alsamixer (in command line)
- moved right with arrows till <Auto-Mut>
- arrow down to disable it

and now it works fine.

Regards,
Blaise
