Audio devices only showing up with dummy output. No audio

Post by lemonickous » Wed Jan 10, 2018 12:51 pm

I have an ASUS FX553VD with dual boot Win10 and Mint 18.1. The only available drivers are for Windows 10, on the site and they are by Realtek. I was getting audio when I was installing mint out of the USB drive. however, since booting from my disk, it's only showing dummy output available. I tried purge removing and reinstalling alsa-base, pulseaudio, force restarting alsa, restarting my PC multiple times to no avail. I also verified that

Code: Select all

/etc/default/speech-dispatcher
has the line

Code: Select all

RUN=no
Following is the audio relevant output from my command

Code: Select all

lshw

I'd appreciate any help, thank you.
