Happy Easter! I'm using linux 13 Maya Mate. This same problem has happened in linux 14 KDE, and in Ubunto linux 12.10. The sound codec defaults on startup after every reboot. It defaults to "HDA Nvidia digital stereo sound". Which I don't have on my mother board I don't have "any" sound cards hooked up to my motherboard. There is also a choice for "built in audio analog Stereo" I have built in Azelia codec that is set to Auto on the motherboard the only other choice is off (if I was using a sound card).
When I go back into Audio settings in the control panel and set it to 'built in Analog Audio- stereo output' my sound works fine.
The strange thing is, is that I don't have any sound cards in my computer at all. My Sound codec is "Realtek ALC889A Codec High definition Audio", the hookups are for either 2/4/5.1/7.1 it even has dolby digital surround sound. The sound on the mother board is working or I wouldn't get any sound at all when I choose "built in Audio" for output instead of the default nvidia digital sound it defaults to all the time.
I hope I provided enough info for someone to help me, my entire hardware specs are in my signature. Is there anyway to disable the Nvidia Digital souns choice from the control panel or the OS itself?
Thanks for any help,
