Getting sound to work

Postby blkwolf » 2017-03-27 15:48

I recently installed Debian GNU/Linux 8. I can't get audio to work though.
Code: Select all
lspci | grep audio
doesn't show my sound card. Any help would be appreciated!

rebooted and it displays the card, but still no sound

Code: Select all
$ lspci -nnk | grep -A1 -i audio

   Subsystem: Sony Corporation Device [104d:9060]


this is an old AIO pc, has an HDMI output, but I want to use the onboard speakers. Not sure if that has anything to do with it

did you unmute the relevant channels?
you can use 'alsamixer' for that.
if you use pulseaudio, you should additionally also check pa settings.

IF that doesn't help, post the output of
Code: Select all
lspci -k | grep -iA5 audio

Can you please confirm if you are using PulseAudio or not. And what desktop environment you're using.

if you use gnome it's safe to assume that you do use pulseaudio.

As you're using Gnome, go to Gnome Settings > Sound. Can you change the output to something like "Speakers - Built-in Audio" for example?

since your audio drivers seem to be ok, it could be a hardware issue...
