I have Ubuntu 13.10 Installed on this machine. It is a Celeron N2820 Processor which is a fairly new chip, just wondering what I should do to troubleshoot this issue? I have no prior experience with Ubuntu and have searched around but I am not sure if it a hardware issue, driver issue or a software issue. Any advice would be appreciated. Also, if I do a fresh install/downgrade to 12.04 could this possibly solve the issue?

Thank you,


Installing Pulse Audio Volume Control ,gives the HDMI audio options, needed: From:https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/precise/paman/

Thank you, this did answer the quesiton, to make it even easier for a someone, these are the steps I took:

Add the following groups to your account: audio, pulse, pulse-access, video, voice

  1. Open a terminal window and run the following:

  2. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/alsa-daily

  3. sudo apt-get update

  4. apt install oem-audio-hda-daily-dkms

  5. Restart System.


Try installing sound plugin.:

     sudo apt-get install libmp3lame0


     sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

I hope this helps.Post if doesn't work.

  • Thank you, I will do this when I get home. I will post the results afterwards.

  • I tried both options with no luck. The audio through the headphone jack works fine but nothing through HDMI.
