Sound from laptop half working?

Hi all,

Today i listen to a few music and videos and i noticed the sound/speakers on my laptop are only working on 1 side. I checked the speaker sound with setting to test left and right side and they work both. But when i compare to windows sound and to linux it's like i have alot of sound loss. Also when i have set the volume @ 30% in windows it is 100% in linux.

How can i fix this ?

Hello, you might want to install PulseAudio for more audio settings:
sudo apt install pavucontrol

Then open PulseAudio from the list of applications.

Thanks will try it out later and report back.

You can also run Alsamixer from Terminal. Check the Output channel settings look correct there.
If in doubt set all outputs to maximum and test.

I tried them both and still didn't fix it. I have a ALC255 realtek card and that use a a dolby surround app in windows to get better surroundings. With linux it only shows "master".

Sound volume in windows is set to 30, when i want the same volume in linux i have to set it to 100...but sound is still not the same.

Is it Alsamixer only showing "Master"

Can you add a screenshot of your Alsamixer settings here.

Will look again tommorow. Thanks for your time.
