No sound on Dell Dimension

Postby dkeill3414 » Sun Aug 02, 2009 6:04 pm

I installed Linux Mint 7.0 on my Dell Dimension XPS410. There is no sound. the audio codec is a Sigmatel 9227.

I added these lines to my alsa-base.conf file:

options snd-hda-intel model=dell-eq
options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=1 model=6stack-dell

It did not fix the problem. Any suggestions?

Welcome to Mint
You have tried a solution that is very efficient for Intel HDA sound
I could not find if the Sigmatel 9227 is HDA
You can change model to what ever you have or auto or some more exotic model like in this topic
You may have to try many different "models" to get it to work - brand or model ...
Note the link to a post in the Ubuntu forums for a list of "models"
And I have recently seen lenovo work on a Toshiba :)
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
