LM Sylvia sound all Fuzzy, Alsamixer does not fix, pulseaudio does not fix..

My XPS Dell laptop's sound on LM Sylvia has this loud, crazy "Buzzing/Crackling sound" every time it loads up and or a movie is played on either VLC or LM player. This is a huge problem for me. So far Alsa mixer and pulse audio have not been able, no matter how much tweaking, to fix the issue..........

Re: Need help reverting to windows10

Touchscreen support - at least to some degree - has been present in Linux Mint since at least LM17.3 with the 3.19.0-32 kernel, so it is quite possible the newer kernel(s) being suggested here will give an improvement. Nothing to lose by trying. From what I am seeing, its NOT supported. In fact, re...

Re: LM Sylvia VLC Fuzzy sound issues, any fix?

Tried what you said in that thread. It had no effect. The issue is the sound seems like a bug-zapper now. It is now like this every time LM Sylvia even starts up. Somehow the effect stayed from the first time I tried to use VLC with a movie. It really sucks because I have to say, LM and LM Sylvia ar...

Best LM extra-security/Encryption apps/programs?

I want to make LM even more secure. I am watched by many I suspect and I would like added layers of securing my system in any way possible via LM.

Any LM Sylvia Laptop/Desktop Touch Screen support/Apps YET?

I run LM Sylvia on a Dell XPS laptop touchscreen and the only thing missing to make LM perfect is any updated touchscreen support. There WAS an app or two for past LM version but they no longer function at all with LM Sylvia..

Need SIMPLE instructions on getting downloaded-online programs to work from DL folder in LM

Every time I download a program such as utorrent for example into the downloads folder in LM it won't allow me to actually run it. It simply puts the files there and yet there is no way way to actually run the programs it seems. I am new to LM and could use just super simple instructions why this is...

Re: Need help reverting to windows10

Interestingly my main reason for wanting to leave LM for w10 was the messed up sound issue I was having with VLC. Still having it with the LM player yet I fixed it with VLC and now that I have a working media player with good sound I am going to stay with LM and just pray that LM develops a good met...

LM movie sound blurred/overpowered, need direct fix

I love LM. It is simply amazing. HOWEVER there is a real issue that has caused me great sadness in respect to LM. On my XPS Dell laptop the sound on both the LM/VLC players is TERRIBLY messed up. Way overpowered and or blurry in loud scenes. As if it's on overdrive or something. I tested it and it i...

Re: Need help reverting to windows10

@ AustinChristTexas, ....... . . If the Dell XPS 15 computer's BIOS setting for the internal hard-drive is RAID and not AHCI, then you likely cannot boot any USB or DVD to reinstall Win 10 or Linux, unless you have first installed the Intel RST fake-RAID driver. Maybe, you need to set it to AHCI. ....

Okay so tried it and it still does not work. I cannot get it to boot up from the USB flash drive. I used the USB image writer and everything and it still won't boot from the USB.
