Ubuntu 9.10 no sound on Gateway laptop MT6707

Asked by Lounge Daddy on 2009-11-19

I followed the Troubleshooting procedures, and if I unswerstand correctly I am supposed to cut and past the following:

The sound system is muted: 'Simple mixer control 'Master',0'. Use alsamixer to unmute and increase volume to 100 (if not installed use sudo apt-get install alsamixer command in a terminal (or gnome-alsamixer which can be founder after installation in Applications --> Sound & Video GNOME Alsa Mixer) and then type in alsamixer and use your arrow keys to move through controls and increase volume and M key to unmute if MM is present under control bar).

Also you can go to System --> Preferences --> Sound and on Hardware tab and change the Profile (should be Analog Stereo Duplex or you can try something similar). In Output tab you can chose a device for sound output (if more than one option) and the Connector.

Good luck.

Your output from step 4 shows the issue your pc is having:

/dev/snd/controlC0: Slmodemd 1242 F.... slmodemd

Your Si3054 Modem is hogging the /dev/snd devices, which is preventing your soundcard from working correctly.

Please try this solution:

which mentions this bug:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pulseaudio/+bug/394500/comments/40

So you need to disable the Si3054 Modem (56k modem)

This issue is identical to the following resolved incidents:

Mark, that worked perfectly.

It was strange because I did check the settings and nothing appeared muted. And running a test gave a sound.

But I did disable the Si3054 Modem, and rebooted. Success! Thanks much.

best,

Thanks Mark Rijckenberg, that solved my question.
