Alsa hda-intel Sigmatel Audio


Okay, I'm using Fedora Core 5 x86_64, and I installed Alsa. I have a ICH7 southbridge chip with SigmaTel audio. I hear sound, but I have to turn the volume all the way up, and it's still whisper quiet. I need to figure out how to turn this up. I used alsamixer, and I turned the sound all the way up. However, the sound is still not loud enough to play over the sound of my system fan. I also noticed that sound only plays through my center speaker (I'm using 5.1 surround sound speakers.) and none of my other speakers. Don't know what's causing that either.

I don't know what log files or config files to display here, other than /root/scsound.log

well the fact is with the sound card , display drivers. well some files would be missing which is rear the sound with the other speakers.

another isssue misht be is you have turned off your other spekaers and making your single speaker on and playing it.
