    No sound after upgrading to mint 18.1

    Sorry, I can't follow the instructions, but would love to try this. I love you Linux people, but I don't speak Linux. The potential solution Zeus posted looks very enticing, but when it comes to computers, I can do exactly what I'm told with copy and paste. Looks like I have to open a...

    No sound after upgrading to mint 18.1

    I hit R shift key every second on start up, 2-3 times/second, restarted the computer and tried L shift key with the same manic shift key button pushing, neither attempt led me to GRUB. I have a 16gb usb flash drive. I have LM mate 18.3 iso downloaded, I also have majaro xfce 17.16 iso...

    No sound after upgrading to mint 18.1

    No audio after fresh install, new HDMI cable, BIOS update to F20 from Gigabyte's website and sudo update and upgrade. Pressed the same buttons as before on the old machine to make sound work. Sure feels like a pebkac problem. I have not looked at distrowatch in years. I'm a fan of LM 18.3...

    No sound after upgrading to mint 18.1

    I'll beat this dead horse. The machine is unplugged sitting in the corner. I don't know much about other distros. I hated the user friendly-ness of Debian. Ubuntu is ok, but I appreciate Mint's desktop setup. I ordered a usb flash drive to update the BIOS. I ordered a new HDMI cable...

    No sound after upgrading to mint 18.1

    No, desktop speakers plugged into the Rear Speaker Out port don't produce audio. However, after the BIOS screen flashed while booting up, the speakers make a small cracking sound. While arbitrarily trying different distros is a possibility, I'd rather learn how to buy a motherboard with known...

    No sound after upgrading to mint 18.1

    I suspect a smart TV is the same as a computer monitor with similar display, similar built-in speakers that yes, do not have great audio as shelf speakers.

    No sound after upgrading to mint 18.1

    1. Desktops, "old give away" and "new". Today, both have Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3. Both built with hardware bought off the internet. 2. External speakers, I use a smart TV for a monitor and use those speakers. Today, the "old" machine audio works when I selected Digital Surround 5.1 from the...

    No sound after upgrading to mint 18.1

    I feel like I bought a piece of hardware that just doesn't have support yet. Others are telling me ALC1220 has support with the 4.13 kernel, and some others are and aren't getting audio. (I also installed Linux Mint Cinammon 18.3 on my old build from 2012, that I was using before where...

    No sound after upgrading to mint 18.1

    Pavucontrol is already installed. I found another thread that said to install the latest kernel, but still no sound, and nothing is muted. So frustrating to have a new build and not be able to make it work. uname -r 4.15.4-041504-generic
