No Sound on HP dv2500

Postby sophie611 on Mon Mar 18, 2013 10:45 am

Hi everyone!

Disclaimer: total linux newbie, here.

I just installed LinuxMint 14 on my old HP dv2500 and had some issues with the wireless (solved) and the sound (not solved). I tried a few of the tricks I saw here and some other linux forums, but I haven't quite seen the same exact issue come up:

There's no sound playback except a clicking/popping sound. So, just to illustrate, if I play a youtube video I get absolutely no sound, but if I get a gchat notification I get this awful popping sound from my speakers. And, if just to annoy me, I muted it but it's decided to turn itself back on when I get a notification. So sweet.

Anyway, when I put this in the terminal:
Code: Select all
sudo lspci | grep -i audio

I get:
00:07.0 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation MCP67 High Definition Audio (rev a1)

And this might be useful, too:
Code: Select all
cat /proc/asound/card0/codec*

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Is volume set correctly in alsamixer? Check the settings by typing the below in terminal.
Code: Select all
alsamixer - I have posted an idea on having a Troubleshooting wizard in Mint for audio related issues. Request you have a look at it and provide your views and if it makes sense cast your vote on it. Thanks :)Am rallying the forums to get consensus on the idea.
