i can't see why less than 100% would give you no sound, but it might be worth it to take a look in alsamixer to see if raising that level will help.

not to be demeaning in any way or overly simplistic, but i noticed your monitor (if i have the right one) has a volume control button. any chance that might be set too low/off?

Was on 50, changed to 100. Still no change.

Never used the audio-in port. May have something around here somewhere to try that.

Edit: the audio-in port either didn't work or its for something else entirely different.

my pacmd sink data is similar to yours in that i also have nvidia and intel cards listed and many of the drivers, modules etc settings are the same. the main difference that i can see is that my 1 available sink is "hda intel pch" compared your "hda nvidia". i also see at the bottom of your pacmd output that you have an "hda intel pch" card listed.

i don't have a comprehensive understanding of what differentiates a sink and a card for pulseaudio. this link seems to imply that cards are sinks:
Quote:
PulseAudio is a network-capable sound server program. A sound server is a background process accepting sound input from one or more sources (processes, capture devices, etc.), that is able to mix and redirect those sources to one or more sinks (sound cards, remote network PulseAudio servers, or other processes).
i saw a suggestion the other day that you could change your default card with this method. an added benefit of trying that is that it seems easy to undo if it doesn't work.

the debian link quoted above also has this to say about missing sinks:
Quote:
Missing playback devices or audio capture

If Pulseaudio does not correctly detect your input / output devices ("sources" and "sinks" in Pulseaudio parlance), you can try deleting the configuration files and restarting pulseaudio. This is probably unnecessary overkill, but might help some people.
those are the last two possibilities i can think of for your current setup.

i will add that some things on my system work better now using the proprietary nvidia drivers so while i understand your desire to fix this before moving on to that, if no other fixes arise that may be another option.

Not sure what to do, or if anything.

Code:
cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [PCH            ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel PCH
                      HDA Intel PCH at 0x2fff020000 irq 160
 1 [NVidia         ]: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
                      HDA NVidia at 0xec080000 irq 17
Actually confused what I should do.

confused as in not sure how to use that output to change your default card or trying to figure out if you want to?

Confused as it makes absolutely no sense to me.

How do you implement or use it.

Spent countless hours troubleshooting, my brain is wearing down.

@cordx: sinks are output devices (there may be multiple on a given sound card), sources are input devices (eg mic ,line-in).

There should be no need to set the default sound card at the alsa level when PulseAudio is in use. Setting the desired inputs and outputs should be as simple as outlined here...

my brain is getting tired of trying to troubleshoot the touchpad on my new system so i believe i understand where you are coming from.

to implement that fix, you would need to create a file in /etc called asound.conf. i just ran ll on /etc and all of the .conf files i saw were owned by root so you would need to create that file with a text editor that has root privileges. i tried it with sudo vim /etc/test.conf and that worked. obviously use whatever text editor you are comfortable with. if it is a gui editor like leafpad, just make sure you launch it from the terminal with sudo.

then add these lines (from the example on the linked page) to the asound.conf you are creating:
Quote:
defaults.pcm.card 0
defaults.ctl.card 0
using 0 to try and switch to the intel card. save the file and reboot (with fingers crossed?).

edit: check that. i was still writing as ferrari posted.

@ferrari, post #27, they were checked.

@cordx, did what you mentioned anyway, did actually figure it out.

sudo cp /home/wimc/Documents/asound.conf /etc

Since above wasn't really needed.

sudo rm /etc/asound.conf

Went ahead and added nvidia 440 driver via mintupdate. No change so far.

Was hoping adding nvidia driver in the mix of everything would help sound.

Since Windoze 10 sound worked fine, tells me overall sound is not faulty.

May be adding nvidia drivers, went into volume control and changed one setting in the configuration tab and sound works now.
