kcoffmanCan someone help me with a sound issue?03:35
yeehiQuantal used to run v slowly in a Virtual Machine. Has this been fixed now? (It didn't have independent 2D)04:20
holsteinkcoffman: whats up?04:48
holsteinyeehi: "run v"?04:49
kcoffmanholstein I didn't see your reply04:52
kcoffmanholstein this is my problem I have a problem with the sound and volume control on my laptop. If the sound is below about 80% it's silent, when it's at 100% it's super loud and there is a very small window for a happy medium04:53
holsteinkcoffman: have you tried with other operating systems?04:53
kcoffmanholstein it worked with natty04:54
holsteinkcoffman: natty is another operating system04:54
kcoffmanholstein I know, I was thinking windows. sorry04:55
holsteinkcoffman: i would just try and rule out a hardware issue... before you troubleshoot unecessarily software issues04:55
holsteinkcoffman: could be a driver support issue.. there are typically a few things that can make or break audio support.. the kernel version and alsa version04:55
holsteinkcoffman: i usually troubleshoot these with live CD's04:56
kcoffmanholstein: How would you suggest I do that? I have already entered something in terminal that pulled up a volume equalizer and it didn't work04:56
holsteinkcoffman: what i would suggest is to try alsamixer in the terminal.. dont trust the labels04:56
holsteinthen try pavucontrol, again not trusting labels04:56
kcoffmanholstein ah a live CD, since I have switched to Ubuntu my CD/DVD burner works about 1 in 20 times I try to burn so i've given up on burning with this laptop04:57
holsteinkcoffman: i'll just give you suggestions... use what you want04:57
kcoffmanholstein I tired alsamixer in terminal04:57
holsteinkcoffman: you can open a terminal and run a few commands.. lspci, aplay -l, arecord -l04:58
holsteinin these outputs, you'll see the device... i would search "ubuntu model#" and see if anyone else has reported an issue04:59
holsteinkcoffman: when trying alsamixer, you need to really tweak *everything* and trust no labels04:59
kcoffmanholstein I ran the lspci...what am I looking for with this?04:59
holsteinkcoffman: you are looking for the line that states what audio hardware you have... so you can search for help about it04:59
holsteinkcoffman: have you appliced all upgrades?05:00
kcoffmanAudio device: NVIDIA Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a05:00
kcoffmanholstein to my knowledge all upgrades are applied.05:00
holsteinkcoffman: assume nothing.. open a terminal and run05:01
holsteinsudo apt-get update05:01
holsteinthen... sudo apt-get dist-upgrade05:01
holsteinyou can get a kernel or alsa upgrade that could fix (or break) your issue05:01

ubot2`kcoffman: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.05:01
holsteinkcoffman: i might just try another version... if you are runing 12.10, try 12.04... or viceversa05:02
holsteintry and just get something supporting that hardware more "out of the box" til you are comfortable tracking these issues down05:02
kcoffmanholstein I am running the update now05:03
holsteinkcoffman: sometimes theres gain settings in the wrong place in alsamixer... or pavucontrol05:03
holsteinkcoffman: i still dont know what hardware you have either05:03
holsteinkcoffman: you can share the output of lscpi.. or aplay -l05:04

holstein00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)05:05
holstein^^ thats what im looking for05:05
holsteinkcoffman: what operating system are you using?05:09
holsteinkcoffman: you should have all kinds of output there.. front, center05:10
holsteinkcoffman: i would open either or both alsamixer or pavucontrol and dont trust the labels05:11
kcoffmanwhat do you mean i should have all kinds of output there?05:11
holsteinkcoffman: if its says "mic", you test that as a possible output05:11
holsteinkcoffman: those labels are a guess sometimes05:11
