Hello everyone, I have just made the move to Crunchbang on my HP Pavilion dv6-7013cl. But the first thing I noticed was that the audio wasn't working, but I also want to make sure that everything else is working like my video card is fully functioning. I am pretty new to linux and am not sure what to do. If someone can help me or point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated.
Sometimes the system is muted by default, check your sound icon in the tint2 taskbar and check to make sure it is not muted.
Also you can right click the icon and check your preferences to see if there are any issues.
open a terminal and type:
see if your sound card is listed.
also you can use alsamixer to check and see if the correct soundcard or sound output is listed and if any are muted.
let us know if you got things working! Oh and WELCOME TO #! COMMUNITY!
You may find the wrong card is set as default. Take a look with alsamixer run in a terminal, (F6).
Also check your sound program is set up to use your sound card, (internal as against hdmi).
