Hi, I am in the process of installing Zorin OS on my Lenovo MIIX 320 10ICR with 4GB RAM. Unfortunately, as in:
after installing a fresh Zorin on a Lenovo MIIX 320 10ICR the microphone, sound and webcam stopped working. It seems like the hardware is not revognized by the system. There was a Windows 10 preinstalled where the hardware still worked. How can i get the hardware running?
Additional information from lsmod, lspci, lsusb and uname -a
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Atom/Celeron/Pentium Processor x5-…
None of the solutions with me work, as I also have no sound; the microphone does not work and it does not catch the two cameras.
I have absolutely no idea what to do next, I am very green in these matters. I wanted to install Zorin because I was using it on another computer - but there were no problems there.
I would hope for help on how to fix the sound, microphone and cameras.
Thank you in advance and have a nice day!
Can you please create a file in
etc/modprobe.d/ to allow for blacklisting a module:
sudo touch /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-audio.conf
Now, open that in a text editor:
sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-audio.conf
Add the following line:
ctrl+o to overwrite, then the
enter key to save current configuration. Tap
ctrl+x to exist the editor.
Reboot and test sound and mic.
Thank you for your help, but it doesn't help;//
Still no sound and no mic.
I just saw why. There is a typo in it. How embarassing.
This should be:
Add the following line:
HDMI, not HMDI....
Because of course...
I suggest removing that file we created above to ensure it does not conflict with any future attempts.
Lenovo. It has become the most Linux-Unfriendly manufacturer of our time.
Thank you for the effort anyways, I hope there is a solution;//
Yes, I have been searching around. I have seen the same one I suggested earlier posted.
And I have seen nothing else that offers an actual solution.
I have seen a lot of posts and comments about Lenovo being extremely resistant to provide for the Open Source drivers.
Which is concerning. But we will keep looking.
I even tried install both Core and Lite versions - but in both the same problem.
Would you mind sharing the output of
lshw -c display.
Many sound cards are part of the video card anymore and this may be a video driver issue.
It wouldn't hurt to also provide the output of
lshw -c multimedia.
for completeness of information, I had tried to install linux mint and the audio works correctly (like on windows), excluding hardware problems

I have the same sound card in my netbooks as mentioned in this post: https://ele
This thread solved the issue - but it turned out to be a hardware issue:
