Laptop sound system not working

Postby jdanfor1 » Fri Dec 13, 2013 7:20 pm

This has been an issue for awhile now and I'm not 100% certain if it's my machine or the Linux system. I'm also not certain how to check which version of Mint I'm running at the moment, so I'm obviously serving as no help at all.

If someone could help, it'd be appreciated.

All things go better with Mint. Mint julep, mint jelly, mint gum, candy mints, pillow mints, peppermint, chocolate mints, spearmint,....

Alright, this is some of what was pulled up when I typed in that second code.

Distro Linux Mint Debian Edition
CPU: Single core Intel Pentium M (-UP-) clocked at 1400.00 MHz

What particulars do I need from this section of code?

How would I know since you didn't post it? Obviously you have LMDE if what you've said is correct, but no info given on laptop model nor even the sound chip used with it. If you want to do this secretly by yourself, then figure out the sound chip, search for the linux drivers that will work with it, use modprobe command to discover if you already have that mod set for the kernel to use, and if not then install it.

I'm not quite sure what did you mean with 'sound system' I guess it is the sound when you click something or do some activity on the screen. if it is true then the source the problem is that your system is missing some packages.
