When the quality sound gone, set mute to your volume and turn off mute again. This quality sound stuff happens to me also and I repair it easily like that. Also you can check alsamixer. To open alsamixer, write terminal "alsamixer" and you will see some of the sound settings.

HDMI output from devices such broadband set top boxes seem to output audio. I am not remotely convinced that computer graphics cards do this as well. Please check with the graphics card manufacturer to determine if yours is supposed to do that. Nothing is nearly as difficult to accomplish as the impossible.

You should try a current release or another Bluetooth dongle. I found that some USB dongles work better than integrated Bluetooth. I know that this somehow defeats the purpose of having Bluetooth only non-dongled hardware. :(I noticed on my laptop, that the audio delay was reduced to a minimum with 14.04.

There are 2 in the repositories for specific soune systems: Alsa: sudo apt-get install libasound2-plugin-equal LV2: sudo apt-get install eq10q For pulse you are bound to be needing a PPA.

I think i found the answer myself. I tested the system and i found out that the songs that are encoded by Ogg Vorbis free code does not have any problem, so i downloaded SoundConverter and converted my whole music library to Ogg Vorbis, it took some time, but worth it. Now i do not have any noise problem on my music library, but of course by adding a new MP3 ...

I had the similar problem recently after updating my Toshiba chromebook which runs Ubuntu 14.10 using crouton. The sound stopped working (although it did detect an output device "cras"). An update to crouton (instructions here) solved the issue for me.

Yes there is: amixer set Master 100%. However, that sets the master volume to 100% and then leaves it there, so the polite thing (and not easy way) to do would be: #!/bin/bash declare iCurrentVolume=`amixer get Master | tail -n 1 | awk '{ print $4 }' | cut -c2-3` amixer set Master 100% ogg123 /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/bell.ogg amixer set Master ...

Even though you have provided very detailed description of your computer, it is not possible to know for sure if everything will work from the description.

As I said in my last comment,, according to this page gnome-sound-recorder is broken and won't be fixed (it will be suppressed in future releases). My suggestion for your classroom is to use audacity or write a simple GUI wrapper for arecord/parec.

I had the very same problem installing Lubuntu on a new media center PC I built recently with an embedded A4-5000.

Does this, updating the driver, help? Otherwise, have you tried making sure it's not something to do with your speakers/headphones? Edit: I don't know what I'm talking about, so maybe you should wait with trying this until someone smarter suggests a better option ;)

Like you I like a silent computer & I dislike the Ubuntu drum sound on start-up & reboot. My solution to silence my computer was to get an old set of headphones, or ones that no longer work, and cut off the cord at the headphone jack and place the remaining headphone jack in the headphone socket on the computer. When you want to listen to sounds ...

This seems to be a typical USB stereo headset. If it doesn't offer any special modes in alsamixer or the Windows software/driver blob enables some proprietary mode that makes it receive multichannel audio and processing audio on the device or cable plug, then stereo is all you will ever get. "Emulated surround sound" as you already said. You could – no, ...

I also had a similar problem, and none of the above solved it. It turned out that in addition to reinstalling ubuntu-desktop, I had to remove my ~/.pulse folder. It's not usually there, but I had created it while following some instructions online to solve some specific issues, and later I completely forgot about it.

Here's another possible solution: Open Kazam and go to File -> Preferences Under General check to see what's listed as the source for "Microphone." In my case, it was using the microphone from my webcam as the source by default, which is why I was getting all the noice. I switched it to "Built-in Audio Analog Stereo" and the noise went away.

Found this solution on WebUpd8 - sudo sed -i 's/^Exec=.*/Exec=env PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=30 skype %U/' /usr/share/applications/skype.desktop The command above replaces "skype" from the Skype desktop file with "env PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=30 skype", this being a work-around for getting Skype to work with PulseAudio 4.0.

Quoting a suggestion... Your DDX does not work with your current kernel and/or libdrm. There are at least three possible reasons for this: the nouveau DRM kernel module is not loaded, a version mismatch between the Nouveau DRM and libdrm, or KMS being disabled. First check, that lsmod command lists nouveau. If not, do modprobe nouveau to load the nouveau ...

Unlike MPD in system wide mode PulseAudio is running in userspace. This means, all pulseaudio settings including Bluetooth discovery and providing a Bluetooth audio sink is done from a user session.

Tried different headphones, problem persisted. Reinstalled the operating system, problem persisted. Switched to Fedora, problem persisted.

AMAZINGLY, sound works for me now for some reason. I've installed a few different games since, but I think what did the trick was installing REGNUM, which is a free MMORPG for linux.
