In terminal

Code:
speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2
Code:
speaker-test -Dplug:surround40 -c4
If you get sound. I guess something is muted in ZorinOS mixer settings.

Another sound test if you have the inbuilt .wav file

Code:
speaker-test -c 2 -t wav -l 3
Code:
speaker-test --channels 2 --test wav --nloops 3

Zorin os

The issue is that and this has happened with a few versions of Linux I have tried is that the sound card locks up.This from live or normal install.
When I reboot into windows7 x 64 I only have two channels working, I have to shut down the PC remove the sound card re-insert it then everything is back to normal, anyway so much for switching over, too much hassle. The only OS so far that did sort of work was SLAX 7.08 but again also only two channels. Guess I'm stuck with Microsoft on this machine.

Code:
sudo modprobe snd-virtuoso snd-pcm-oss snd-mixer-oss snd-seq-oss
Code:
alsamixer
unmute everything ( use F6 to select device, and m toggles mute )
