As my hard drive crashed in my touchsmart 610 - I reinstalled my system on a linux external HDD - but since then when I plug in my PS3 via HDMI to the touchsmart I have no sound. The image from the PS3 is however working in HD perfectly fine

As I have tried mutliple things already I am starting to be annoyed by this. The sound works perfectly on the computer itself (music, movies etc) but only not from the PS3. When I run alsamixer I do not see however any HDMI port active.

Please help - I am an absolutely newbie to Linux.

Ah. of course. It is ubuntu 12.04

Here is the detail of my graphic card - as I heard this may help - and somewhere below the details of the sound.

1 Answer 1

Open the terminal and type the following:

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

This will open alsa-base.conf in gedit, the official text editor on the Gnome desktop. At the very end add the following 1 line to alsa-base.conf file:

options snd-hda-intel model=touchsmart

Now, save the file and reload alsa using:

sudo alsa force-reload
