Hey,

That seemed to have work thanks but now I'm back to my jittery/stuttery playback of sound.  Can you help with this?  I don't want to end up repeating this troubleshooting cycle thanks.

My first step of course though will be restarting my system and listening to other sounds to see if it's the same output.

What is producing the broken sound, flash video, vlc, videos, mp3s etc?

I played the default wav sound from the terminal and it stuttered.  I also tried a video on the internet at varying speeds/video quality to no luck.  Finally, I tried a music file off an external usb stick and no luck.  Each of these files all stuttered/struggled to play.

It may be necessary to add a model option to your alsa-base.conf file, open it by typing in a terminal:

Code: [Select]
sudo leafpad /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

and pasting only the below line as is, on the bottom of the file, on its own new line.

Code: [Select]
options snd-hda-intel model=dell

Then proceed to reboot, and test audio. If this does not work we may need to test other model options.

A brief reason why, is that the driver tries to do an automatic set for proper flags and in doing so it sometimes gets this wrong. The intel audio is basiclly one of the most common drivers for audio hardware. Because the hardware varies so much we may need to use different model options. Typically this is the cause of your issue of messed up audio, I hope this fixes it. If not we try until it is :-p

Hey,

I tried editing the file, making sure to save it, and rebooting but to no avail?

What is the model of your computer?

I am using a dell mini 1010, I believe that the audio driver is supposed to be a dell-multi-driver - I think.

Re-open your configuration file as you have previously,

Code: [Select]
sudo leafpad /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

And remove the line you previously added. (or you can place a # in front of it to disable, but its much easier to simply delete the line you can reference this thread later if need be.)

Code: [Select]
options snd-hda-intel model=dell

After you remove the line above enter these lines as is and save the file, exit and reboot. Hopefully it should be solved.


Code: [Select]
# Stuff you Added.
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=basic


The developers for the Linux kernel love to change things and not document it very well. As I believe I explained before this is quite troublesome as this singular driver provides functionality to hundreds of chip sets. It continuously changing and annoying for certain pieces of hardware. If this again does not solve the issue, we resolve to find a fix for you if possible.

If you are wondering what it will look like as a whole file you can vist here.

aplay -l
and

Code: [Select]
cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
and paste the results please.

It's all honestly it's all gone horribly wrong again, I've lost my sound when I have been trying to find solutions to find stuttering sound.

I have the issue of losing my sound card again, and I really don't know how to install it?  I downloaded the realtek driver for my system but cannot seem to follow the instructions.  I have tried compiling/configuring the driver but fail to do so.  I get the following outputs:

System report is attached.

You mentioned you installed the realtek driver, who gave you that instruction? This is where it has all gone wrong I suspect.

Actually no.  I didn't install anything while trying to find a match for the al269 settings of the driver I was changing the configurations on the last line of the alsa.conf file as I had found many people tried different types that were similar to their make or model.

In regards to the previous posts which I attempted merely straight after it had been posted.  Since it's nearly been a week since my last point I though I try working out how to stop audio stuttering.

Of course, upon occasion you get it wrong, which I did - therefore I need to install my sound card again.  As I know and found out last time; my computer uses Realtek HD Audio which is the alsa alc269 driver, I tried following instructions and compiling the driver myself.

I also of course was following the sound troubleshooting on the forums through the manual and had proceeded to remember what was done last time.

I run the commands Valtam said to do and following are the results

Code: [Select]
click@lite:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: MID [HDA Intel MID], device 0: ALC269 Analog [ALC269 Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: MID [HDA Intel MID], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

click@lite:~$ cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
Codec: Realtek ALC269
Codec: Silicon Image SiI1392 HDMI
[code]
