Audio no longer working after inserting "new" radeon graphics card

Post by peppamint » Wed Dec 06, 2017 3:52 am

Hi,

My system was working nicely (with respect to video and audio) until I have inserted an amd graphics card. I was using the onboard graphics chip before that. Now audio is not available. I have no idea how to get this working again. I hope I can get some help here:

What I find strange is this. The graphics card is an older model from AMD it has two DVI connectors. But lspci shows an hdmi audio device:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Cedar [Radeon HD 5000/6000/7350/8350 Series]
01:00.1 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Cedar HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 5400/6300 Series]

Please run the following command from Terminal and post back the results:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
I would check BIOS Settings to verify onboard audio is still enabled.

I don't see the onboard audio listed. The Radeon HD Cedar has its own integrated HD Audio, which may cause the motherboard BIOS to detect and disable onboard audio.

Did you check BIOS settings to see if the onboard audio is enabled? If the setting has ENABLE/DISABLE/AUTO, set it to ENABLE (not AUTO).

If that option doesn't exist in BIOS, does removing the Radeon HD for a test bring back the onboard audio?

The bios setting for onboard audio was disabled. Enabling and adding

Code: Select all

radeon.audio=0
to kernel parameters gave back onboard audio. Thank you very much!
