You will be better off in the future if primary OS is backed up prior to installation of another. First, preferably, we have to discover a path that let us boot you into Windows. Assuming that Lubuntu filesystem has not overwritten any bit of Windows (highly probable) and GRUB is installed with Lubuntu on default you can let os-prober do the job. Check ...

I had the exact same problem (same laptop, same Ubuntu version). I solved it following instructions from a website I dont remember anymore.

I still cannot comment on how xmms2 handles the situation, but switching back to "Analog Output / No Amplifier" in gnome-control-center fixed the issue and there are no longer hard bumps in volume when switching to the next song. The volume controls of e.g. alsamixer also behave as expected.

I have had this problem too, perhaps at least some of the problem is that Amarok Diagnostics report KDE Version 4.14.15, Qt Version 4.8.6, but Wily shipped with Plasma 5.x KDE Applications 15.x and Qt 5.x (I've installed Plasma 5.5.3, KDE 5.18 and Qt 5.5.1 from the backports PPA but still Amarok reports the older 4.x versions of KDE and Qt).

The OSes, Windows and Ubuntu runs independent of each other. The difference after installing Ubuntu is the boot manager. The boot manage will load the OS, and from there it's up to the configuration of the OS, as to how it behaves. Windows does not poll the Ubuntu partition while it's running because Windows can't read the Ubuntu file system. While ...

I had the same problem and I managed to block the static sound by going to my sound settings and leaving that window open the entire time i'll be using my headphones or speakers. I've searched for a permanent solution but still no answer, any way, leaving the window open is not much of a problem.

Assumption: we’re talking about Ubuntu (i.e. Gnome/Unity) 14.04 here not Kubuntu/Xubuntu/Lubuntu. I’ve found it quite difficult to find a definitive answer about how the sound themes are supposed to work in Ubuntu, but here’s what I have figured out.

I am guessing that the problem is that distro doesn't automatically change sound configuration - HDMI requires digital output which is not set automatically and although you have connected TV to PC's HDMI jack, there is no output to it. That was the problem in my case (and still is). I found out that it's a software issue because HDMI sound worked fine when ...
