hda intel cougarpoint natty acer 3830tg no sound

Asked by physe on 2011-06-21

Hello, i installed ubuntu 11.04 (64bit) on my Acer Aspire TimelineX 3830tg-2314G12nbb. I can hear no sound at all.

I downloaded and ran alsa-info.sh and the output is stored at http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=0cd81d6420b0d85778e76360af0e76f733aea5f7

No channels are muted in alsamixer, although it shows only 3 tabs: Master, PCM, and S/PDIF.

I am aware i may need to edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf or /etc/modprobe.conf, but both files do not exist in my ubuntu installation.

The sound was fine on windows 7.

Any help would be appreciated. Heartly thanks!

physe (graverini-elena) said : #2

I am using kernel 2.6.39-0-generic.
Any clue?

Lee Rosen (lfr1138) said : #3

I have run into a similar issue on my Acer 3820 and Natty (64-bit) -- sound working OK until I started Skype 2.2.0.35 (which had worked OK for earlier versions after some sound tweaks). After trying several things (re-installing alsa, checking levels in alsa mixer, etc.) I have no sound output, despite seeing the monitor levels go up and down on the pulseaudio volume control when running something that should produce sound.

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask physe for more information if necessary.
