No sound..


Well, I've just installed Mandrake 10.0. Everything seems to be working great with the exception that I can't get any sound. I am using a SoundBlaster PCI512. MCC detects both my SB and my onboard. How would I go about getting sound?

no sound ubuntu

I'm using Ubuntu and I'm not getting sound either. I think it thinks my soundcard is my M-Audio Audiophile but I don't want it. I looked at the help on the sound manager thing, and it shows a picture of what it should look like... mine doesn't look like that... mine looks like... http://www.geocities.com/vfd2112/Screenshot.png

I NEED HELP!!!

Yea, i ain't got no sound either on Fedora Core 3. I don't think it's so easy to get either if it doesn't detect it in the first place (in my case at least). I don't know if it's cool to post threads from different forums (shout at me if it's not), but check this one out

That fella didn't have much luck, and neither did I following some of the directions in the thread. If anyone's got any ideas, I'd love to hear them, and good luck with yours guys!

Okay, I've gotten sound to work periodically on my machine. I play a song in Totem to test it out, it works. After I close Totem or stop the song, if I go to play another song, no more sound. It plays just enough sound to tease me.

I think my soundcard must be a useless piece of junk. I've just installed SuSE 9.2. It detected the right soundcard, but.................no dam sound. If silence were really golden, I'd be on a private yacht somewhere, not messing around with crappy pieces of hardware.
