sound use to work not now [was solved but not now solved]
Postby tbrownarcher2 on Sun Oct 14, 2012 3:55 pm
I'm running linux mint 13 I think it's gnome? on a lenovo machine
When I first installed it the sound worked perfectly on both of my cards one being the motherboard included sound card and the other is a soundblaster card.
Now I can get the sound on the motherboard to work not real well and the sound on the soundblaster does not work . Both sound cards are recognized in system settings/ hardware/sound but when i highlight the soundblaster i can't find the correct digital setting
This is the answer that worked and the result of that answer but now it does not work in fact the plug and play was still set active

The most likely cause is a conflict between the two sound devices.
Your best option is to access your BIOS and disable the onboard sound device.
Which Soundblaster card are you using?

the setup did not have an option anywhere to actually disable one sound card nor did it name them but it did have a plug n play option that was not on so i turned it on and my sound card (soundblaster) card works now. I should have thought of something in the bios but i don't always see the obvious ...
thanks very much,

THE SOUND DOES NOT WORK NOW AND ALL SETTINGS ARE OK FROM THE LAST TIME IT WAS FIXED i DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO NOW ...... I HOPE I'M NOT BREAKING RULES HERE
