My laptop speakers are noisy. Which was not in Windows. Can anyone help me.
Can you please post the teriminal output for
sudo lshw -C multimedia
You can tweak more audio settings on AlsaMixer, that's accessible on terminal by entering
Here is the screenshot. I tried with alsamixer many times but it didn't work. Using laptop with low volume, speakers play clearly but if i increase the volume, the problem started with my speakers.
This list... well, then...
The hardware is at least detected. Working appears to be another matter entirely.
How did you install Zorin; and did you do a reboot or shutdown before installing? Windows was taking over my sound bus when I did reboots before booting or installing..
I installed it as a second operating system. I made a bootable USB drive then i boot my laptop into boot menu and finally i installed it into another drive. That's it.
No, Over-Amplification is disabled.
@ridanul Have you explored
Maybe in alsamixer hit F6 to see what sound cards are listed and what controls appear for each. You can post a screenshot here so we can see what you have there. That may help diagnosis, but sound issues can sometinmes be challenging.
EDIT: I have done a bit more websearching but not turned up any certain fix. This item seems to relate to similar audio cards as you have:
Try this - boot into Windows, then shutdown; don't reboot. Had that with my dual-boot - drove me insane.. knew the driver worked cause there was a loud 'starting' sound when booting the USB lol.. Windows takes precedence over the sound bus, some new thing. If I just reboot into Zorin, no sound.. If I shutdown Windows before booting Zorin, no issues! I miss being able to install whatever distro I was going to use right from Windows just don't make em like they used to, heh..
It's something to try at least, free - I'm suspecting this is the cause though; especially with dual-boot.
