No sound (SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio)
I can't get any sound from my laptop. I have installed Mandrake 9.2.
My laptop is a compaq presario 700:
- AMD Duron 900Mhz
- 384Mo Ram
- graphic: S3 Graphic Twister K
- Audio : SoundMax Integratet Digital Audio
Mandrake has "found" 2 drivers by default for my soundcard (via82xxx if I remember well, and another one), but it doesn't work. In fact I've tried to watch a DVD, connecting a headphone to hear the sound. And when I put the sound on max, I heared the sound, but not very very loud...
I've tried to modify the sound computer configuration, but I didn't find anything interesting.
Thanks for your help.
it's possible you might need to install alsa... another question though, are you able to adjust the volume in a mixer or do you get that nice wonderful error (can't load /dev/mixer).. if you don't mind, maybe try going to the command line, and typing lsmod to list your modules. then post your results on here.

Here is the result of lsmod for sound:

I had the same problem, but not with a laptop. What i did is disable de PnP in the BIOS settings and then i was able to hear the sound. BUT i had to plug the speakers to the micro slot instead of the Out one....(really strange).
Hope it helps
Look .. when you download the NEW version of Alsa Drivers you need to downlaod the tools too -- and you know how to comile it...
1) go to the ALSA DRIVER and OPEN the terminal their -- and type
after that type : ./snddevices ... Raise the volume and Reboot your machine
its gonna work perfectly
