From what I see here,
it's possible your issue is caused by PulseAudio. To find out (and as a workaround,) please open a terminal and copy and paste this command and hit "Enter"...
If this has no affect, please take a look at the other solutions mentioned in the thread I linked to. Please let us know what happens.
The conundrum of switching exclusively to Linux from Windows is that solving problems in LINUX often leads one down the “Trail of Tears” which is this: in order to solve most of the problems in LINUX one must have extensive knowledge in programming and software constructions and execution of the linux system. By comparison, when one get a Windows system, it works, usually, right out of the box.
But when it does not work-and here is where the conundrum step in- there were countless sources out there to get windows fixed, whereas finding out how to fix Linux immediately leads one into the world of programming and software knowledge the average consumer does not have, does not desire, and does not have enough time in his life to learning all it take to operate a Linux system. What is left in the Linux world is a small group of devoted Linux gurus.The conundrum is that Linux suddenly becomes a massive power but cannot work because of some knit-picking glitch of which no one has an answer to get it up and running properly, unless he is one of those gurus.
I have a genuine hatred of all that Windows represents, and have for years been trying to switch to Linux, but the conundrum toady is just a real as it was in the mid-1900’s, twenty-five years ago, when I first started to make the switch.
For example, while Linux will work on almost any old Junker, Linux does not perform every task on every old Junker as the old Junkers are when they enter the world of Linux.
To perform flawlessly, the old Junker must have certain specific hardware to meet the requirements of the current version of software that is available. The answer is: both software and hardware must be compatible and workable together as a pair. When they do not, then the consumer is left to become the in between man who tries to find a work around. If the parameter (as defined by the software) are stated, including what hardware is needed, then it is left to the consumer to meet the requirements of both elements, hardware and software. In this case I am that consumer who is out in the world of Linux gurus, trying to eek out a fix for a system that won’t work because of some glitch between software and hardware, about which I know nothing.
That is the base conundrum of why Linux does not take over the world of computing, where it should be. In the world of ignorant consumers, Windows has met that challenge, in most cases, while Linux is busy developing upgrades that are not compatible with the existing hardware.
I would gladly like to find a specific version of Linux (out of the box) to work on my hardware. How do I do that?
