The first time and one other time booting Manjaro i’ve had sound fully working. The annoying system beep sound will play when shutting down or restarting. I’m running Majaro 5.8.11-1 (Linux58) also have kernels linux57 and linux54 installed. I’ve tried every setting i could see or think of with pulseaudio and tried uninstalling/reinstalling it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
My ALSA info can be found here…
Blacklisting the pcspkr module will prevent udev from loading it at boot and shutdown:
In terminal: echo “blacklist pcspkr” > /etc/modprobe.d/nobeep.conf
got rid of the beep, any ideas on how to fix my sound not working?
Maybe give this link a read:
Alienware 15 has a Creative CA0132 for onboard audio
This has a lot of different controls in ALSA that are not found on other makes of audio codecs
I think these 2 controls in ALSA need to be turned on
Simple mixer control 'HP/Speaker',0 Capabilities: pswitch pswitch-joined Playback channels: Mono Mono: Playback [off] Simple mixer control 'HP/Speaker Auto Detect',0 Capabilities: pswitch pswitch-joined Playback channels: Mono Mono: Playback [off]
suggest use these commands to unmute both controls
amixer --card=1 sset 'HP/Speaker' unmute
amixer --card=1 sset 'HP/Speaker Auto Detect' unmute
and if audio is working correctly, save the ALSA settings
sudo alsactl store
