Complete audio dysfunction
Last modified: 2009-05-18 14:43:59 EDT
Description of problem:
No audio or sound functionality at all in x86_64 F11 in HP dv 9904ca Laptop with Nvidia MCP67 High definition audio.
Audio was working, although not spectacularly a few updates back.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Please advise any logs or output you may need.
Please, this bug report is not that useful.
Please explain exactly what is going wrong. Does PulseAudio crash?
Do your applications appear to be playing music except that you cannot hear anything (i.e. does the time display advance?)
Do you get any error messages? What exactly do they say?
If you run the GNOME volume control, do your music applications appear in the "Applications" pane?
Man, I know this report is about as useful as a rubber wrench. I'm embarrassed it had to be public.
Yet ... I really don't know where to start. I was (Yeah. Past tense. That helps! :-/ ) getting no sound at all from any application ... until I booted this morning, and for the first time in about two weeks, I got the sign-on jingle.
To make matters worse, the error balloons which were popping up over any audio applications were a bit less than constructive. Quote -- "An error has occurred."
I'm really not technician enough to do much with that. And it's probably even less helpful to you. :-(
So ... as this morning I do seem to have sound -- for now, I guess we can just close this one -- or just shove it to a back burner -- and I'll re-open it with such info as I can glean if and when it happens again.
I hate chasing intermittent problems.
OK, I'll close this for now.
If you get another problem then please create a new bug and include the stuff I asked for above in there. Thanks.
