I am running Ubuntu 14.04 on an ASUS X52J laptop.
I was watching a lecture on Google Chrome, when suddenly, all sound was lost. Throughout the PC. No sounds from Chrome (even though Chrome indicates it does play sound). No sounds from VLC, and no sounds from pulseaudio's sound tests.
- Reloading ALSA via
- Checking the ALSA mixer via
alsamixer, nothing out of the ordinary.
- Restart my PC. Did not help, didn't even hear the drum sound on startup.
~/.config/pulsefile away and killed pulseaudio again.
pacmd list-sinks | grep mutedindicates that nothing is muted.
I'm not sure what to do anymore. Could this be a hardware problem? Is there anything I haven't tried yet?
