Hi @TheDead,
I unmark the post now, I though it will have no responses but @Moltke asked me a question about this and now you too.
I installed HWE support and the output from the terminal command line is the following:

hwe-support-status --verbose
Your Hardware Enablement Stack (HWE) is supported until abril 2025

I rebooted and disabled the sound from the BIOS. Afterwards, I reboot and enabled it.
In both cases the sound is still missing, the output I wrote are the same.  It is a weird problem.
 
The only thing is changed is that now, the output of pactl info is the following.

pactl info
Cadena de servidor: /run/user/1000/pulse/native
Versión de protocolo de biblioteca: 33
Versión de protocolo de servidor: 33

Regards,

According to pactl info pulseaudio is enabled and up, which means you should be getting sound, aren't you? If you don't, try renaming your ~/.asoundrc to ~/.asoundrc.bak, restart pulseaudio
Code: [Select]
pulseaudio --check returns 0 when the pulseaudio daemon is already running, or non-zero otherwise. Then
Code: [Select]
pulseaudio --start start pulseaudio if it is not running yet. Implies --daemonize. For more info read man pulseaudio
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

Hi @Moltke ,
I tried both commands and I recieved no output  on the console. I also move the .asoundrc to .asoundr.bak and restart pulseaudio, but still not sound.

Then, I open a terminal command while I was playing a sound track on VLC and I excecuted the following commands:

It sounds that pulseAudio is not available, although when I start pulseaudio
ps ax | grep pulse

  11341 ?        S<l    0:00 pulseaudio --start
  11770 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep pulse


I could still not see where the problem is.

I'm quite not sure, because you didn't use BBcode and read all that is a bit messy, but it seems that the audio device might be not the right one, make sure that pulse is using the right device. If you've set this via configuration files, undo that, reboot and let pulseaudio to choose the audio device to use.
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

I think Moltke could be on to something...
1.Original post said:
snd_hda_codec_generic,snd_hda_codec_realtek

2.
Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation MCP61 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
Subsystem: ASRock Incorporation MCP61 High Definition Audio
...but them it says :
Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel
Kernel modules: snd_hda_intel

3.
Then recently:
Destino por defecto: alsa_output.pci-0000_00_05.0.analog-stereo
Fuente por defecto: alsa_input.usb-KYE_Systems_Corp._FaceCam_VGA-02.mono-fallback

4.
Then last :
sysdefault:CARD=NVidia
    HDA NVidia, ALC887-VD Analog

Refering the the Widnows world, sound output goes trough different "channels/outputs" so the chipset and output could display differently.
But from in all I see
HDA Generic, Realtek, Intel then nVidia.

Maybe the output tries to go to a USB device (webcam, headphone, cellular, mp3 player, illuminating rock ;) ).
Point 3. mentions a webcam (?), so I would disconnect it and anything USB other than mouse and keyboard if possible and reboot.

I'm still a Linux noob so I can't "decode" all those logs myself. Maybe it's time to boot a live Linux USB key and check with that.

Hi  @Moltke and @TheDead ,

I finally bought a sound and microphone USB which is suitable for Linux and the result is the following:
After a coulple of weeks I hear the sound again!!   :wave

I updated the BIOS, read to many post in order to have a clue on what has happend to the onboard audio card and I sourrendered. :imsorry

Thank you for your time and patience.

Sourrendered? Did you mean surrendered? Just curious, did you fix it or not?

Hi @Moltke ,
That's it,  I "surrendered". I did not fix it whether I reinstalled LL again and nothing happened.

The onboard sound card is dead, I have misprinted the word.

Lol, trying everything and missed the obvious... yeah hardware can be defective.A bigger pain when it's half-working.

I would conclude to tell you to check capacitors in you computer, just in case some are buldged.  :018: .

Regards,

Too bad you couldn't fix it, but if the onboard card is dead, there's nothing you can do but get a new one. I invite you once again to post in the Spanish subforum, as it is our native language, thus more easy to write, read and understand everything.  :55:
