Have you already tried rebooting?
I found this guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting
but it says: "As of 2012, much of the information on this page is
outdated. Please refer to the official sound debugging guide and Ubuntu
Audio Development team's pages for more up-to-date information."
Unfortunately it seems ubuntu sound debugging info isn't as good as it
Amen to that! I'm on 10.04LTS and haven't had sound to external
speakers or mic for months. Luckily the headset jacks still work.
The community documentation used to have a 2 step process for 10.04.
The first usually got the external sound back. If not, the second
always did. Then the documentation changed and the second step
disappeared. Haven't been able to restore external sound since.
My ASUS MB with built-in audio crapped out. So, I just installed another
sound card, and disabled the onboard one in the bios. And that worked
like a charm. PCI Sound cards capable of 8 (7.1) outputs cost around
$20-$30 bucks. It just might be that the internal hardware is just CHEAP
and doesn't last long.
Of course, if it's a laptop, then battling it out with alsa is about
your only alternative. Ric
