Default How to unmute the sound?

Hi:

My sound card stopped working on my laptop D630 (lenny/sid). I tried to recompile the alsa-driver, it returns one warning indicating that sound channel for the card is muted by default.

But when run the "alsamixer", all the channels are available to ajust the volume.


What should I do to fix this issue, or how to unmute the sound?

Thanks.
Michael

When running "alsactl store", it tells that can not find the sound card.

But the "lspci" indeed output the sound card:
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)


What's wrong about this?

Thanks!

In alsamixer, look at the bottom of the volume bars. If it says "MM"
there, type M to unmute. The volume can be adjusted independently of
whether the channel is muted.

Did the sound stop working with the new driver? Or you tried to
recompile because of missing sound?

Yes. I tried to recompile because of missing sound suddenly for unknown
reason.

When I was recompiling the alsa-driver, it told me that the sound is unmated
by default. After finished installing the driver again (without checking if
sound is muted or unmated), when using "alsactl store", it returns that "no
sound card found". But the sound card is indeed there by "lspci".

In alsamixer, there's no "MM" for each volume bars. I have tried to ajust
and switch mute mode, it works pretty well. But no sound output. I don't
know why!

Thanks.
M.

probably you should have tried to solve this problem instead of
creating a new problem over the top. Whatever caused the first problem
is still around and may be the reason your recompiled drivers aren't
working.

I have an nNidia Sound in a Laptop (Acer Aspire 7720) and have exactly
the same problem with the exception, that I have ONLY a "Master" and
"Balance" and not more. The Maser is unmuted but no sound, while "cdcd"
is playing fine the CD inserted...

Even "aplay some_wave.wav" is playing nicely and show details but there
is NO Sound... :-(

I have tried uninstall alsa driver and re-compile and reinstalled it for several times, the problem still exists.


Could any one help?

Thanks.
