Sound problem

Recommended Posts

Sound was working fine up to presumably yesterday when I noticed it. I didn't change any sound settings, but someone else might have. There is suddenly absolutely no sound at all.


I went through all the kmix panels and nothing is muted. I've got a soundblaster live platinum and an intel ac'97 audio card on here (labeled Intel ICH5 in kmix) , and both are using the default drivers according to the mcc. When I try the recommended troubleshooting steps in the mcc I get some information but nothing that suggests any steps to take to fix the problem.


"/sbin/chkconfig --list sound" and "/sbin/chkconfig --list alsa" both give the following line:

sound 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off



Does anyone know what the problem is? What do you recommend?

Have you checked that the speakers or the headphone are plugged in the right socket, maybe someone has unplugged it and replugged it into the mic or line-out socket?
